Vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals have similar viral #loads in communities with a high prevalence of the #SARS-CoV-2 delta variant

SARS-CoV-2 variant B.1.617.2 (delta) is associated with higher viral loads [1] and increased transmissibility relative to other variants, as well as partial escape from polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies [2]. The emergence of the delta variant has been associated with increasing case counts and test-positivity rates, indicative of rapid community spread. Since early July 2021, SARS-CoV-2 …

The effect of #trunk flexion angle on lower limb mechanics during #running

High trunk flexion during running impacts lower limb kinetics and kinematics. β€’Ground reaction forces increased significantly with greater trunk flexion. β€’Stride parameters and joint moments were affected by degree of trunk flexion. β€’Trunk position should be investigated as a contributing factor to running injury. AbstractTrunk flexion is an understudied biomechanical variable that potentially influences running …
