Theoretical analysis of the mechanisms of a gender differentiation in the propensity for orthostatic intolerance after spaceflight
TLDR
Computer simulation studies demonstrated that a 15% lowering of the longitudinal center of gravity in the anatomic structure of the model was all that was necessary to prevent the physiologic compensatory mechanisms from overcoming the propensity for reentry orthostasis leading to syncope.
Interactive Model Tool about Center of Mass during COVID-19 Pandemic: A New Learning Path in STEM for K-12 Education
TLDR
The Interactive Model: "Change your Center of Mass!" was built and evaluated by teachers of Public Schools (Brazil), who highlighted its potential (impact, complexity, applicability, innovation) suggesting the model to the educational system.
ANY OLYMPIC JUMP THAT WOMEN CAN DO, MEN CAN DO NEARLY 20% BETTER
Men clearly outperform women in events that depend on moving the body’s mass through space. However, the between-sex differences may vary with event specific mechanical demands. Existing observations

TLDR
The biomedical findings as well as the hardware development results realized from the EDOMP have been important to the continuing success of extended Space Shuttle flights and have formed the basis for medical studies of crew members living for three to five months aboard the Russian space station, Mir.
Die spezifischen Auswirkungen und Merkmale von Trampolinpark-assoziierten Verletzungen
Einleitung In den letzten Jahrzehnten wurden Verletzungsmuster im Zusammenhang mit Trampolinspringen und Indoor-Trampolinparks (ITP) in mehreren Studien untersucht, jedoch zeigten diese
[Characterisation of the impact and features of trampoline park-related injuries].
TLDR
ITP-related injuries were more prevalent in adults compared with children, and the lower limb was the most affected anatomic location in all ages.
Biomechanics of Vertical Posture and Control with Referent Joint Configurations
TLDR
The main findings included the shift of zIP toward higher frequencies and strong correlations between Tr and zIP when the subjects stood with increased muscle co-activation, and the results within the idea of whole-body control with a set of primitives associated with referent coordinates in the joint configuration space.
A multiscale model to predict current absolute risk of femoral fracture in a postmenopausal population
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ARF0 can be computed using the model with sufficient precision to distinguish between subjects and that the novel mechanism of fracture risk determination based on fall dynamics, hip impact and bone strength can be considered validated.
