Plantar Pressure Differences Between Nordic Walking Techniques

: H1: Increases in walking speed will lead to greater plantar pressure. H2: NW will reduce the plantar pressure compared to W. H3: The mechanical differences between NW techniques (Alpha, Diagonal) will lead to different plantar pressure distribution. Material and Methods Participants Twenty-seven physically active sport science students were randomly assigned to one of the training groups: Alpha Technique (AT, n = 15, age = 20.4 ± 1.6 years; body mass = 75.5 ± 10.2 kg; body height = 179.1 ± 8.8 cm) or Diagonal Technique (DT, n = 12, age = 19.3 ± 0

Do Strike Patterns or Shoe Conditions Have a Predominant Influence on Foot Loading?

lower extremity injury within the previous 6 months and no vigorous exercise within 24 hours before the experiment. Before the start of the study, participants were familiarized with the experimental protocol and potential risks. Informed written consent was obtained from each participant and approved by the Institutional Review Board of the Shanghai University of Sport. Instrumentation Two 90 × 60 × 10 cm 3D force plates (9287B, Kistler Corporation, Switzerland) embedded in the laboratory floor were used to register the ground reaction force (GRF) data at 1200 Hz

health and is the cause of death in 3.8% of cases and accounts for 4.6% of permanent disability cases, which makes it the most prominent risk factor to avoid ( Rehm et al., 2009 ). For a long period of time, sports activity was considered a protective factor against alcohol abuse, although study results have been controversial. Several recent studies indicated that sports were a risk factor for alcohol consumption ( Dietze et al., 2008 ) and that alcohol abuse prevention programs have already been introduced in sports environments ( Kingsland et al., 2015 , 2016
