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

Sports compression apparel consists of elastic textile that exerts pressure onto muscles. It is common for sportswear which consists of elastic textile that exerts pressure onto muscles to improve athletic performance and reduce sports injury. Since muscle activation is very sensitive to external conditions, the differences associated with muscle a...
Various fabric properties are important for different sports applications. In order to improve fabric performance the focus is more on the material features of fabrics rather than the pattern. Fabric properties like moisture management, air permeability, and stretchability depend not only on the materials (the polymer) but also on their assembly in...
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured ligament. It has a great impact on athletes causing long absence from play and is linked with increased risks of osteoarthritis. Today, literature suggests that the knee braces may not completely reduce ACL injury mechanism risks. Ankle braces, on the other hand, have shown promising res...
NaTUre-gaits (Natural and TUnable rehabilitation gait system), has been developed for a robotic-assisted overground walking training. Effects on muscle activation of participants during walking with the system were evaluated and analyzed. Clinical trials were conducted and electromyographic (EMG) signals were collected from major lower limb muscle...
The current study investigated the effects of wearing a variety of lower limb compression garments on 400m sprint performance. Eleven male 400m runners (23.7 ± 5.7 y, 1.78 ± 0.08 m, 75.3 ± 10.0 kg) completed six, 400m running tests on an outdoor, all-weather running track on separate occasions. Participants completed two runs either with long-lengt...
During activity, the body's limbs experience significant anthropometrical changes as muscles and tendons exert force for motion and stability. This dynamic motion is of interest to sports compression garment manufacturers who seek to enhance sports performance through gradient compression garment design. Existing devices for measuring garment press...
