Article
Research attempted to validate simplified insoles with a reduced number of sensors to facilitate clinical application. However, the ideal sensor number is yet to be determined. The purpose was to investigate the validity of vertical ground reaction forces in various simplified pressure sensor insoles and to identify an optimal compromise between se...

This study quantified the strength of the relationship between the percentage of heart rate reserve (%HRR) and two acceleration-based intensity metrics (AIMs) at three sensor-positions during three sport types (running, basketball, and badminton) under three intensity conditions (locomotion speeds). Fourteen participants (age: 24.9 ± 2.4 years) wor...

Lactate is a metabolite produced during anaerobic glycolysis for ATP resynthesis, which accumulates during hypoxia and muscle contraction. Tobacco smoking significantly increases blood lactate. Here we conducted a counter-balanced crossover study to examine whether this effect is associated with inhaling nicotine or burned carbon particles. Fifteen...

Monitoring physical activity, e.g., training load and energy expenditure (EE), is important to optimize the training process in various sports. Especially in team handball, where there is little information about EE in training and competition. The objective of the study was to compare EE in team handball derived from a respiratory gas exchange ana...

Computerized wobble boards (WB) are used to objectively assess balance in healthy and chronic ankle instability individuals. As in field setting health professionals might not own WB, objective evaluations are not always feasible. Therefore, the aim of this tudy was to investigate the contribution of sagittal plane joints angular-displacement and a...

OPEN ACCESS: https://www.mdpi.com/2076-3417/10/17/5921/htm ||| The purpose of this study was to determine whether coordinative jump training that induces neuromuscular stimuli can affect balance performance, associated with injury risk, in elite-level female volleyball players. During the competitive season, the balance performance of 12 elite fe...
Article
Purpose: To determine the effect of in-season differential training on volleyball spike-jump technique and performance in elite-level female players. Methods: During the season, spike jumps of 12 elite female players (Austrian Volleyball League Women) were recorded by 13 Qualisys Oqus cameras (250 Hz) and an AMTI force plate (1000 Hz). First mea...
Article
Objective The multifaceted characteristic and task-specificity of postural control clearly reflects the need of knowing which factors could influence the balance measures in order to provide reliable and unbiased information. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the effects of selected anthropometric characteristics, sex, lower limb’s strengt...

Final presentation of the thesis on 1) biomechanical sex differences in volleyball spike jumping, 2) performance determinants in females, and 3) effects of technical training in females. https://youtu.be/KAKUnDGHsTg
Article
Full-text available
There are well-known biological differences between women and men, especially in technical-coordinative variations that contribute to sex differences in performance of complex movements like the most important offensive action in volleyball, the spike jump. The aim of this study was to investigate sex-dependent performance and biomechanical charact...
Article
Objectives: Performance factors in the volleyball spike jump are well known for male players; however, technical-coordinative differences for female players are known only marginally. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between movement characteristics and female’ spike jump performance and to identify the most relevant...
Article
Background Wobble boards (WBs), commonly used to train postural control, have been recently equipped with accelerometers connected to a computer displaying real-time balance performances. However, little is known about their ability to detect balance deficits in subjects with unilateral chronic ankle instability (CAI). Objective To determine if co...

Original video record of the presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv8G5xGJmPQ Abstract: Oriental martial arts are heavily influenced by Zen Buddhism and Taoism (Columbus & Rice, 1991). However, such ways of thinking are associated with pacifism, ethics, or certain views on the world and human existence rather than with adding practical va...

Consecutive proximal-to-distal sequencing of motion is considered to be integral for generating high velocity of distal segments in many sports. Simultaneous usage of proximal and distal segments as seen in martial arts is by far less well investigated. Therefore, the aim of the study was to characterise and differentiate the concepts of consecutiv...

INTRODUCTION Jump height and ball velocity are most essential for successful volleyball spike jumps. Performance determining factors were investigated in males only (Wagner et al., 2014) despite technical differences between sexes (Fuchs et al., under review). In absence of clarified performance determining factors in females, optimised specific tr...
Article
Purpose: Biological differences between men and women are well known; however, literature-addressing knowledge about the influence of sex to specific and general performance in team handball is almost nonexistent. Consequently, the aim of the study was to assess and compare specific and general physical performance in male and female elite team ha...
