Lauren C Pringle, MD, Miho J Tanaka, MD and Laura M Fayad, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 11, 2019

We performed a comprehensive review of imaging investigations of knee morphology comparing male and female subjects using PUBMED, with search terms for CT/MRI, knee anatomy, and gender. Inclusion criteria were primary imaging investigations of knee osseous/cartilage anatomy (minimum 15 subjects); exclusion criteria were studies of post-operative patients, those with comorbid orthopedic conditions, and review articles. Sex differences in osseous/cartilage anatomy were extracted and aggregated. O...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 09, 2019

Menstrual disorder is a risk factor for stress fracture. Stress fractures impede running activity in female long-distance runners. However, the bone metabolism of female long-distance runners, and its relationship with bone quality, are not understood. We examined the characteristics of bone metabolism and bone quality in female long-distance runners with menstrual disorder. Sixteen female university long-distance runners and 31 young female non-athlete volunteers were enrolled. Self-reported me...

Ludivine Paris, Romain Guidoux, Damien Saboul, Martine Duclos, Yves Boirie and Sylvie Rousset

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 04, 2019

Physical inactivity and long sedentary time are common in obese people. The eMouveRecherche application was developed to provide accurate minute-by-minute classification of physical activity in light, moderate, vigorous intensity and sedentary bouts. The aim was to compare the frequency and length of bouts in Normal-Weight (NW) and Overweight (OW) adults. Fifty-seven adult participants either normal weight or overweight wore a smartphone with the eMouve application for the entire waking period o...

Validity of Two High-Incline VO2max Protocols for College- Aged Population

DE Lankford, FACSM, Jake T Bartschi, Keegan Huntsman, Lex Gidley, Tyler Hook and Yilin Wu

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 04, 2019

The aim of the study is to validate two high-incline Graded Exercise Tests (GXT) that could be used as alternatives to the Bruce protocol to obtain VO2max values for college-aged individuals who may not be accustomed to running on a treadmill. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) assesses the upper limit of an individual's ability to consume and utilize oxygen during intense, or maximal exercise, commonly accepted as a reliable indicator of cardiorespiratory health. Among all the existing protocols, G...
