Of dehydration, compromised athletic performance and exertional heat injury

Acute Whole-Body Cooling for Exercise-Induced Hyperthermia: A Systematic Review

Brendon P. McDermott, MS, ATC; Douglas J. Casa, PhD, ATC, FNATA, FACSM; MatthewS. Ganio, MS; Rebecca M. Lopez, MS, ATC; Susan W. Yeargin, PhD ATC; Lawrence E. Armstrong, PhD, FACS; Carl M. Maresh, PhD, FACSM
Journal of Athletic Training 2009;44(1):84–93 National Athletic Trainers’ Association, Inc

Critical review of the available research on whole-body cooling for the treatment of exertional hyperthermia indicated that ice-water immersion provides the most efficient cooling.

and treatment of heat illnesses

Origami interleaved tube cellular materials

Kenneth C Cheung, Tomohiro Tachi, Sam Calisch and Koryo Miura in Smart Materials and Structures. 23 (2014) 094012 (10p)

The paper describes a cellular material based on a deployable cellular origami structure. The structure is bi-directionally flat-foldable in two orthogonal (x and y) directions and is relatively stiff in the third orthogonal (z) direction. This article presents the geometric characteristics of the structure together with corresponding kinematic and mechanical modeling. It is the engineering behind the Charles Owen experimental materials manufactured on a 3-D printer.

A Critical Review of Horse-Related Risk: A Research Agenda for Safer Mounts, Riders and Equestrian Cultures

Kirrilly Thompson, Paul McGreevy and Phil McManus Animals 2015, 5, 561-575; doi:10.3390/ani5030372

Risk taking behavior and culture in riders. The study identifies how the ways in which risk is constructed in each dimension affects the applicability of four basic risk management options of avoidance, transference, mitigation and acceptance.

Helmet Use Amongst Equestrians: Harnessing Social and Attitudinal Factors Revealed in Online Forums

Laura Haigh and Kirrilly Thompson Animals 2015, 5, 576-591; doi:10.3390/ani5030373

Epidemiological research details a high rate of horse-related injury, despite technical countermeasures being widely available and largely affordable. Whilst barriers to engaging in preventative behavior such as helmet-use have been identified, less attention has been given to enabling factors. This article explores these attitudes.

Six Degree-of-Freedom Measurements of Human Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Annals of Biomedical Engineering Dec. (2014) DOI: 10.1007/s10439-014-1212-4

This preliminary study investigated whether direct measurement of head rotation improves prediction of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Mouth guard instrumentation

Lasting Pituitary Hormone Deficiency after Traumatic Brain Injury

Odile Kozlowski Moreau, Edwige Yollin, Emilie Merlen, Walter Daveluy, and Marc Rousseaux1
JOURNAL OF NEUROTRAUMA 29:81–89 (January 1, 2012)

Pituitary deficiencies have been reported after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and may contribute to lasting cognitive disorders in this context. TBI patients with
cognitive sequelae must undergo pituitary screening because growth hormone, corticotropin, and thyrotropin deficits are particularly common and can adversely affect ADL and reduce QoL. Activities of daily living; cognitive disorders; pituitary deficiency; sequelae; traumatic brain injury
