How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The current study aimed to comparatively examine the effects of minimalist, maximalist and conventional footwear on the loads experienced by the patellofemoral joint during running. Twenty male participants ran over a force platform at 4.0 m.s-1. Lower limb kinematics were collected using an 8 camera motion capture system allowing patellofemoral ki...
Minimalist footwear has been the subject of much attention in footwear research. More recently, maximalist footwear, which feature an oversized midsole have been developed. The aim of the current investigation was to compare the kinetics and kinematics of running in minimalist, maximalist and conventional footwear. Twelve male runners ran over an e...
Runners have sought to utilise athletic footwear as one of the mechanisms by which they might attenuate their risk of injury and improve their performance. New commercially available footwear which claims to boost energy return have been designed utilising an expanded thermoplastic polyurethane midsole. These footwear have been shown to improve run...
