This study aimed to assess the trajectory of breast displacement in 3 dimensions during walking and running gait, as this may improve bra design and has yet to be reported. Fifteen D-cup participants had reflective markers attached to their nipples and trunk to monitor absolute and relative breast displacement during treadmill walking (5 kph) and running (10 kph). During the gait cycle, the breast followed a figure-of-eight pattern with four movement phases. Despite a time lag in resultant… Expand
A comparison of three-dimensional breast displacement and breast comfort during overground and treadmill running.
TLDR
Investigation of 3D breast displacement and breast comfort during overground and treadmill running suggests that breast motion studies that examine treadmill running are applicable to overground running. Expand
Supported and unsupported breast displacement in three dimensions across treadmill activity levels
TLDR
While breast support was effective in reducing the amplitude of breast displacement during walking and running, the direction was unaffected and future research should identify multi-planar breast kinematics during various sporting modalities. Expand
Studies of three-dimensional trajectories of breast movement for better bra design
This paper presents a new method for evaluating 3D breast motion relative to the thorax using a new breast coordinate system. A local virtual origin is defined by four breast boundary points, in aExpand

In order to investigate the effect of exercise modality and bra type on vertical breast displacement, seven participants with similar ages and body types were selected to take part in this study.Expand
The influence of breast support on torso, pelvis and arm kinematics during a five kilometer treadmill run.
TLDR
The running kinematics reported in the high breast support condition more closely align with economical running k Cinematics previously defined in the literature, therefore, running in a high breastSupport may be more beneficial to female runners, with a high Breast support advocated for middle distance runners. Expand
Breast motion asymmetry during running
TLDR
Following participant categorisation according to the greatest magnitude of superioinferior breast displacement (dominant breast), results showed significant differences in displacement for all directions across different breast supports. Expand
Comparison of vertical breast displacement between two different sports bra designs
Breast pain during exercise could come from the strain on the breast due to large repetitive breast motion. Proper sports bra should provide not only a support but also reduce breast movement. SinceExpand
The effectiveness of a range of sports bras in reducing breast displacement during treadmill running and two-step star jumping.
TLDR
It is apparent that resultant breast movement and the reduction of such movement is a multifaceted function of breast size, bra design and movement/activity type and indicates that sports bras should be carefully selected to best suit the activity and breast size of the user. Expand
Can axes conventions of the trunk reference frame influence breast displacement calculation during running?
TLDR
It is recommended that the previously reported 'stable' longitudinal axis should be defined as the first rotational axis during running as the axes convention influences the magnitude and direction of breast support requirements, which has important implications for bra design. Expand
Sports bra but not sports footwear decreases breast movement during walking and running.
TLDR
No differences were found between footwear within each breast support condition, but a sports bra is efficient to decrease breast movement, and neither of the tested footwear was able to decrease these movements. Expand

Selected Sports Bras: A Biomechanical Analysis of Breast Motion While Jogging.
TLDR
Eight sports bras were compared and evaluated to determine the amount of biomechanical support they provide for small-, medium-, and large-breasted women and showed that the Exercise Sports Top and the Lady Duke bras allowed the least amount of breast movement. Expand
Age-related changes in upper body adaptation to walking speed in human locomotion.
TLDR
Findings support the importance of systematic manipulation of walking velocity and three-dimensional upper body kinematics in assessing age-related changes in locomotor stability and adaptability. Expand
Patterns of spinal motion during walking
TLDR
Investigating the patterns of movement of the lower thoracic and lumbar spinal segments and the pelvis in subjects walking at a self-selected speed found consistent patterns within and between segments and movements, which suggests that the spinal movements associated with walking are linked to the primary motions of the Pelvis and the lower limbs.

Critical kinematic events occurring in the trunk during walking
The purpose of this study was to systematically assess three-dimensional trunk kinematics during level walking in normal subjects, to establish a preliminary baseline for comparison to futureExpand
An analysis of movement and discomfort of the female breast during exercise and the effects of breast support in three cases.
TLDR
The results showed that wearing external support for the breast tissue reduced absolute vertical movement and maximum downward deceleration force on the breast, and support also reduced perceived pain. Expand
Trunk kinematics during locomotor activities.
TLDR
It is concluded that upper-body kinematics relative to both pelvis and gravity during daily activities are important to locomotor control and should be considered in future studies of patients with locomotor disabilities. Expand
Rotational and translational movement features of the pelvis and thorax during adult human locomotion.
TLDR
A two camera SELSPOT system interfaced with an HP1000 minicomputer was used to obtain three-dimensional kinematic/temporal data for the pelvis and thorax and revealed a very complex pattern with a set of breakpoints which was consistent over all subjects. Expand
Trunk movements in human locomotion.
TLDR
The adaptations of trunk movements to speed and mode of progression could be related to changing mechanical conditions and different demands on equilibrium control due to e.g. changes in support phase duration and leg movements. Expand
Two methods of calculating thorax kinematics in children with myelomeningocele.
TLDR
Clinical significant differences were found between changes in different thorax models and between the sequences of rotation for subjects with pathological thoracic motion, suggesting that the conventional sequence (flexion, lateral bending, axial rotation), is preferable for the thorax. Expand
