Metabolic effects of soldier performance on a simulated graded road march while wearing two functionally equivalent military ensembles.

Three factors, namely, elevation grade, equipment weight (load), and overall subject physical abilities, were significant for overall metabolic demand during a simulated graded road march and might affect field performance.

Pack Palsy in Backpackers.

Effects of heavy load carriage during constant-speed, simulated, road marching.

Increasing the load that a soldier is required to carry may negatively affect road march performance, as increasing the load carried in a rucksack resulted in increased VO2, RPE, and HR; therefore, increasing the Load carriage requirements in the field regularly exceed 50% of lean body mass should be increased.

Soldier performance and strenuous road marching: influence of load mass and load distribution.

Neither load mass nor pack type affected soldiers' marksmanship ability, grenade throw accuracy, or cognitive ability, but the concept of distributing the load mass more evenly around the center of mass of the body has both positive and negative aspects and warrants further investigation.

Effect of mechanical compression due to load carrying on shoulder muscle fatigue during sustained isometric arm abduction: an electromyographic study

The increased signs of local fatigue of UT may be interpreted by a localised blood flow impairment resulting from the direct compressive force exerted by backpack on this muscle.

Effects of gradient and load carried on human haemodynamic responses during treadmill walking

The data suggest that during isodynamic exercise, one of the main factors determining metabolic and haemodynamic responses will be the change in gradient and to a lesser extent, the mass of the load carried.

The oxygen consumption with unloaded walking and load carriage using two different backpack designs

The findings of the present study suggest that a load carriage system that allows the load to be distributed between the back and font of the trunk is more appropriate for carrying relatively heavy loads than a system that loads the back only.

How heel oxygenation changes under pressure

Heel oxygenation decreased without the anticipated hyperemic response, raising the question of whether this is a sign of increased pressure ulcer risk and why oxygen tension does not return to baseline when pressure is removed.

Development and assessment of the Canadian personal load carriage system using objective biomechanical measures

This study provided a detailed report of contributions by biomechanical testing to the final design of the final Canadian LC system and concluded that objective assessments added valuable information not easily interpreted from human trials.
