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 …

Plight of the distracted #pedestrian: a research synthesis and meta-analysis of mobile #phone use on crossing behaviour

Pedestrians are commonly involved in vehicle collisions that result in injuries and fatalities. Pedestrian distraction has become an emerging safety issue as more pedestrians use their mobile phones while walking and crossing the street. ..Fourteen experimental studies were ultimately included in an N-weighted meta-analysis (k=81 effect sizes), and eight observational studies were included in a …
