This grantwould be a follow-up grant to my 2018 GSI Sport 2036 seed grant to research “The Premier League and Globalization’s Contradictions.” Both research projects will inform the publication of a trade book on this global contest between our US-centric sports and the world’s default game, and this latter grant will also help defray reporting costs for a monthly sports globalization column published in Global Sport Matters.
The proposed study will serve as a foundation to develop future study phases to investigate the intervention’s efficacy in certain population characteristics and further develop a standardized protocol to clinically implement LI-BFR. In this proposed study, 36 subjects will be recruited from a population of Mayo Clinic patients who have been identified as those with an ACL injury that requires surgical reconstruction.
The purpose of this study will be to explore male adolescent athletes’ perceptions of masculinity, with a specific focus on social influences on those views (e.g. coaches, parents, peers, media). The topic of masculinity, and especially “toxic masculinity,” has been a recent focus within popular news outlets.
The purpose of this project is to conduct a deeper investigation into the experience of female students at a sports-based K-8 charter school to better understand sources of inequity and engage girls in a youth participatory action project to foster empowerment through sport.
The Body and Representation is a proposed course where students are exposed to the work of artists using the body as a tool to produce meaning, evoke metaphor, and mobilize political actors. During the course, students from a variety of disciplines will respond to prompts and have the opportunity to produce creative projects or researched papers. In addition to the course, there is a proposed lecture series.
Low-cost and lightweight wearable soft robots can be used in labor-intensive jobs and sports training to reduce muscle efforts and joint loads, improve performance, and prevent injuries. This project builds upon the success of our last GSI-funded seed project.
This proposal aims to develop a fiber sensor that enables in-situ detection of motion, temperature, and sweat level through multi-layer design, namely: motion detection in the core layer, temperature detection in the middle layer, and, moisture detection in the outer layer.
In this project we propose immersive biofeedback for spinal fitness training and rehab therapy exercise based on a 3D visualization of an athlete-specific, anatomically correct spine model that is animated by wireless sensors.
Sports injuries, especially the bones and cartilages damages, pose significant challenges and require surgical intervention. Currently, tissue engineering represents a promising solution towards the repair and replacement of diseased and damaged bone tissue with engineered grafts, which can provide mechanical support during repair and regeneration of injured tissue.
