Happy to share @pennmotionlab latest paper + 1st collab with @kgSilbernagel and @UDtendongroup. We calculated #achilles tendon #biomechanics over a range of #rehabilitation exercises to rank progressive loading...…
We calculates 3 aspects of loading biomechanics 1) peak load, 2) impulse, and 3) loading rate. We think peak load is most important in healing tendon so we gave that the strongest scaling factor, then impulse, then rate... Image
But you might think Achilles loading parameters should be weighted differently. So we made an app for that... a macro in excel actually. So you can calculate the loading rankings based on your own intuition...

Flip-flops are one of the most popular footwear choices worn during the summertime.

Let’s have a biomechanical discussion on why they may not be the best thing you put on your 🦶...

(Big thread) #biomechanics
First, we must consider the overall design of the standard flip-flop. What should stick out right away is the lack of any support for your foot at the forefoot, midfoot, and heel.

If you have any sort of abbarent loading pattern/foot deformity, the flip-flop will exacerbate it.
Let’s start with the heel. Notice how there is no heel counter!

A heel counter is designed in standard footwear to control overall foot motion, particularly excessive frontal plane motion. If you’re an overpronator, the flip-flop will not stop this motion from occurring.

So @aaron_s_fox jumped the gate on me :) w/ a thread on the #ACL #injury & #AFLW #sport #womanprobs conversation & he did a great job but I'd like my perspective to come in that special 'tone' I may be known for in presentations... My first twitter thread! Expect sarcasm and gifs
1st, I posted my perspective on #injury #women #athlete #development #biomechanics in another tweet, if you missed it, short editorial: & presentation Read those after this thread of fun, I hope the GIFs help you "hear" my tone :)
I’ve seen a bit about #ACL #injury and #menstrualcycles including news stories about organisations ready to study the menstrual cycle and #training - Let me give you some basic information to help you #factcheck before you start #cheering or #praising
