Read the paper Jean-Francois Esculier, Laurent Julien Bouyer, Blaise Dubois, Pierre Fremont, Lynne Moore, Bradford McFadyen, Jean-Sébastien Roy ALTMETRICS I had the great pleasure of catching up with JF Esculier who has just published his RCT completed as part of his PhD. The findings very clearly highlight the importance of education in runners with knee cap pain. Don’t throw the baby…read more

Knee cap pain is the most common form of knee pain. Pain can be hard to pin point but may be around, behind, or under the knee cap.  It affects both males and females of all activity levels and ages. It can cause problems that limit your ability to complete simple daily activities such as walking, running,…read more

1. Estimation of musculotendon parameters for scaled and subject-specific musculoskeletal models using an optimisation technique. (Modenese et al. 2016) Why I like it: Attempts to address two of the most challenging aspect of developing subject-specific musculoskeletal models which implement Hill-type muscle models: quantification of optimal fibre length and tendon slack length for each muscle in the model. Take…read more

1. “Muscle fibre length and velocity in running and walking”:  How muscle fiber lengths and velocities affect muscle force generation as humans walk and run at different speeds (Arnold et al. 2013) Why I like it: Uses advanced musculoskeletal modelling techniques to quantitatively explore the effects of the fundamental phenomenological properties of muscle fibres on the mechanical demands…read more
