This grant would 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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
“Black Womxn Thriving” is a larger national study to examine how professional Black womxn across the gender spectrum find joy, success, and stability at work, along with the role of organizations to cultivate environments of care that promote the values of inclusion, equity, and diversity in the workplace.
Women have become more involved in both recreational and competitive sports and are therefore receiving more attention in the sports medicine literature. The gender differences in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury rate might be attributed to the lower extremity structure difference between males and females.
cTET (contactless thermodynamic efficiency test) is based on an intuitive scientific quantity, the thermodynamic efficiency of a body, which is the ratio of the energy “investment” of a system (the “calories burned”, i.e. energy expenditure [kcal/min]) to the energy output of that system (thermodynamic work done by the person on a treadmill, fixed bike, etc.) obtained under unconstrained physical condition.
