Regression model for the prediction of risk of sarcopenia among older adults

Background. Sarcopenia is a generalized loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength. Early identification is essential to minimize the adverse effects and consequences, which can help in the prevention and timely management of sarcopenia. Hence we developed a regression model for the prediction of sarcopenia. Methods. This study adopted a case-control design. The dependent variable … Continued

ACL biomechanical risk factors on single-leg drop-jump: a cohort study comparing football players with and without history of lower limb injury

Background. The maximum knee valgus angle (KVA) and minimum knee flexion angle (KFA) have been identified as risk factors for non-contact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. The present study investigated whether a recent history of lower limb injury in professional male football players can affect KVA and KFA during a single-leg vertical drop-jump (SLVDJ). Methods. … Continued
