This study will investigate the effect of standardized aerobic exercise (AE) compared to rest on clinical recovery from sport-related concussion (SRC) within the post-acute phase of injury. Participants will be randomized into one of two groups: (1) Aerobic Exercise Group: participants will complete a total of eight exercise sessions over the course of 11 days, starting at Day 6 post-injury; (2) Usual Care Group: individuals will undergo a period of physical ...

Sport concussions are among the most commonly occurring injuries in sport and recreation and pose significant public health implications for Canadians. Many individuals who sustain a concussion recover in the initial 7-10 days but up to 74% of youth and 31% of adults may suffer from persistent symptoms. Little research is currently available evaluating the effects of treatment for individuals who are slower to recover following sport-related concussion. An ... Read More

The aim of the project is to investigate the clinical and patient centred outcomes of people with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) attending a podiatry led integrated care pathway, utilising advice on diet, activity and smoking cessation. The podiatry clinic will be delivered from the Move More centre (NCSEM) and participants will be encouraged to access these facilities as part of their activity programme which will be agreed with the physical activity ...

Since hydrogen therapy in humans seems to be beneficial for treating inflammation, ischemia-reperfusion injury and oxidative stress, it seems plausible to evaluate the effects of exogenously administered hydrogen as an element of instant management of sport-related soft tissue injuries (e.g. muscle sprain, ligament strain, tendonitis, contusion). The main aim of the present study will be to examine the effects of two-week hydrogen-rich oral and topical ... Read More

The overall aim is to explore pathophysiological factors related to airway hyperresponsiveness to direct and indirect provocation stimuli in athletes with different sport activities, with special focus on epithelial reaction linked to CC16 and to eicosanoid related inflammatory response. The investigators also wish to compare indirect testing done as hyper osmotic challenge with Mannitol compared to a defined sport specific exercise challenge. Read More

The modern warfighter faces numerous physiological challenges including sleep deprivation, sustained intense physical activity, and caloric restriction, the combined effects of which may result in the loss of lean body mass and decreased physical performance. Dietary interventions may help preserve lean body mass and facilitate recovery from periods of intense physical demand. For example, dietary strategies that increase amino acid availability have been ... Read More

Persons with Morbus Parkinson commonly develop gait and balance disorders leading to dependence, loss of mobility and a high risk of falling. This study investigates the effectiveness of a sensorimotor treadmill intervention to improve walking and balance abilities in persons with early stages of Parkinson's disease. The sensorimotor treadmill training is conducted on a special treadmill device which is challenging the participants by small oscillations. ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the therapeutic benefit of utilizing complex growth factor preparations (Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in the management of acute hamstring injuries. The hypothesis is that the time to return to sport is shorter in the patient group treated with Complex Growth Factor Preparations (PRP) in combination with exercise therapy in comparison with 2 control groups: - the patient group treated with Platelet Poor ...

This study will examine how the supplement Shroom Tech Sport (STS) affects body composition and different performance and health measures over the course of 12 weeks. The supplement will be combined with a concurrent training regime consisting of resistance and high intensity interval training. Subjects will be tested for percent body fat to determine body composition. Further, they will also be tested for maximal strength (squat and bench), maximal power ... Read More

Almost 1% of all baby's is born with a heart defect (CHD) and most of them survive. Even though outcomes are good, they need lifelong follow-up because of a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases. Studies have shown that patients with CHD are not active enough and that a substantial amount of patients is overweight. Hence preventive strategies and education should not only focus on the heart problem, but also on a healthy lifestyle including physical ... Read More

Physical activity is considered essential for optimal health, development, socialization and well-being of children. However patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are often restricted from participation in exercise activities. This is especially true for children on hemodialysis (HD). As a consequence their exercise capacity is reduced, both before, but most impressively after HD. In a nationwide randomized, multi-center design this study aims to ... Read More

To test the safety and feasibility of a new treatment for adolescents who are slow to recover from a sport-related concussion, the investigators are conducting a randomised controlled trial comparing treatment as usual with an active rehabilitation program that involves sub-symptom threshold cardiac exertion, sport-specific coordination activities, and positive visualisation techniques.

The aim of the present proposal is to investigate the development of distinct morphological, functional, biochemical and molecular aspects of short- and long-term sport-induced changes in the heart, to get a better understanding on the (patho)physiology of athlete's heart. The main goal of our research is to deepen our knowledge on the proper differentiation between beneficial (physiological) and harmful (pathological) consequences of professional sport, ... Read More
