BACKGROUND In the manufacturing industries, tasks requiring poor posture, high repetition, and long duration commonly induce fatigue and lead to an increased risk of musculoskeletal disorders. Smart devices assessing biomechanics and providing feedback to the worker for correction may be a successful way to increase postural awareness, reducing fat...
Background: The FIFA 11+ has shown positive effects on balance and proprioception parameters in football players. As there have been very few research studies involving futsal, we examined the short and long term effects of the FIFA 11+ on static and dynamic balance, as well as proprioception in male amateur futsal players. Methods: Seventy-one mal...
Background: The FIFA 11+ has shown to increase muscle strength and reduce injury risk. The purpose of this study was to assess the short and long-term effects of the FIFA 11+ on knee strength, and muscle latency after sudden inversion of amateur futsal players. Methods: Seventy-one male futsal players were recruited and randomized to a FIFA 11+ (n...
Objective The purpose of the study is to determine the immediate effect of Bowen Therapy in pressure pain threshold and postural sway of healthy individuals. Design Crossover, randomized, and double blinded study. Setting University. Participants Participants aged 18 years old or over, naïve to Bowen therapy were recruited among university stude...
Background: Kinesiology tape seems to improve muscle force, although little is known regarding its effect on latency time and postural sway. Objectives: To examine the effects of kinesiology taping on fibularis longus latency time and postural sway in healthy subjects. Methods: Thirty participants were equally randomized into three groups, two...
LOCUS is a multidisciplinary project with the goal of co-design, develop and evaluate an IoT system and understand its potential to support playful intergenerational engagement in creating and exploring cultural contents and learning about Cultural Heritage of rural territories from the Centre Region of Portugal, namely Amiais Village, in Sever do Vouga. By implementing a playful and immersive Cultural Heritage Tourism approach to foster Amiais' cultural and socioeconomic development, LOCUS will allow visitors to have immersive gamified experiences, by using a wearable device (bracelet) and their smartphones to interact with augmented everyday things around the village and to collaboratively learn about Amiais' culture and produce and share multimedia georeferenced contents. LOCUS is co-funded by FCT - Foundation for Science and Technology, through national funds, and by the European Regional Development Fund, framed in the Operational Programme for Competitiveness and Internationalisation - COMPETE 2020, under the new partnership agreement PT2020.
