Exercise Science to present at the American Society of Biomechanics 2021 Annual Meeting.

Benjamin Hinkley ’21, Aaron Tranquillo ’19, D’21, Veronica Venezia ’21, Niclas Sharp ’21, and Dr. Robert Creath will present Simulating Hip Stiffness in Healthy Adults during Quiet Standing by Use of a Hip and Knee Brace: Preliminary Results, at the American Society of Biomechanics Annual Meeting in August 2021. Dr. Creath is an associate professor of exercise science, director of the Lewis Human Performance Lab, and a member of the American Society of Biomechanics. 

Dr. Ferreira Presents in Atlanta and during Virtual Conference

Dr. Diego Ferreira, assistant professor of exercise science, presented a poster, “Variability of individual response to whole-body vibration and treadmill walking in ambulatory children with cerebral palsy,” at the American Congress of Rehabilitation Virtual Conference. He also presented two additional posters, “Effects of body position and external load on knee joint kinematics and muscle activity in healthy young adults during the pendulum test,” and “Acute effects of whole-body vibration on stair ascent in children with Down syndrome,” at the American Society of Biomechanics annual meeting in Atlanta, Ga. 

Exercise Science Majors Assist Dr. Walker at Regional Conference

Dr. Alan Walker, assistant professor of exercise science, had eight exercise science majors attend the Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference for the American College of Sports Medicine in CITY/ST, with him earlier this month. The students— Courtney Betsock ’21, Stephanie Jones ’20, Samuel Miller ’20, Ethan Hurd ’21, Madeleine Brown ’21, Kirstyn McNamara ’21, Shelby Hoke ’21, and Morgan Menges ’21—learned from experts in the field and helped Walker administer a fitness challenge for attending students to represent their respective institutions and compete for a trophy as the fittest school. The LVC octet aided Walker by running various fitness tests and judging the competition.

Dr. Walker Adds Trio of Research Publications

Dr. Alan Walker, assistant professor of exercise science, recently co-authored three research publications, including a pair in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. His published research focused on Biomarker Response to a Competitive Season in Division I Female Soccer Players, Running Economy and its Correlation to Performance and Fitness Variables in Recreationally-Trained Distance Runners, and Contextual Factors Influencing External and Internal Training Loads in Collegiate Men’s Soccer.

Students Attend First Biomechanics Conference

Dr. Georgios Stylianides, director of the Jeanne and Edward H. Arnold Health Professions Pavilion Performance Laboratories and associate professor of exercise science, recently attended the American Society of Biomechanics East Coast Meeting, bringing along two students majoring in exercise science and physical therapy, Alyssa Raughley ’19, D’21 and Victoria Laczo ’19, D’21. Alyssa and Victoria have already been in two of Dr. Stylianides’ exercise science courses. The students benefited from the opportunity provided by LVC and Dr. Stylianides. They learned about performing and presenting research in the biomechanics field, among other educational and networking benefits. In addition, Dr. Stylianides served as a moderator for one of the workshops for the conference, which was held at Penn State University—Berks.

Research Co-Authored by Dr. Stylianides Published in “Frontiers in Neuroscience”

Dr. Georgios A. Stylianides, associate professor of exercise science, co-authored a paper with colleagues from Qatar and France that was published in “Frontiers in Neuroscience.” He conducted the research on Session–RPE Method for Training Load Monitoring: Validity, Ecological Usefulness, and Influencing Factors with colleagues from Qatar University, University of Lyon, FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence, and Qatar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital.
