NIH-Funded Team Uses Smartphone Data in Global Study of Physical Activity

worldmap_steps_white_1.jpg

Using a larger dataset than for any previous human movement study, National Institutes of Health-funded researchers at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, have tracked physical activity by population for more than 100 countries. Their research follows on a recent estimate that more than 5 million people die each year from causes associated with inactivity.

Biomechanical Acoustics Study Sheds Light on Running Injuries

Devoted runners suffer from a surprisingly high rate of injury. One reason for these injuries is that runners endure many shocks from the impact of running, and these cause vibrations that travel from the foot throughout the entire body. Delphine Chadefaux, a post-doctoral researcher who focuses on acoustics and biomechanics, studies these repetitive shocks and investigates how runners adapt their running patterns according to running conditions and will share some of the insights from her research during Acoustics ’17 Boston.

University of Rhode Island Group Takes Holistic Look at Lifestyle and Dementia

Faculty, staff and graduate students are taking on one of society’s most vexing health challenges: how to prevent or slow the onset of dementia through changes in diet and exercise. And what sets the Lifestyle Interventions Group apart is its inclusion of disciplines beyond the typical confines of brain science.

Combating Chronic Kidney Disease with Exercise

A University of Delaware research team is combating chronic kidney disease (CKD) with exercise. The team had patients engage in a specially designed exercise program and found that it improved their blood vessel health and exercise capacity.
