  • Salivary and urinary methodology for ovulation and menstrual cycle phase detection among eumenorrheic females: A scoping review protocol 

    Doroshuk, Marissa L.; Kazakoff, Alissa; Hayden, K. Alix; Doyle-Baker, Patricia K. (Graduate Studies, Kinesiology, Libraries and Cultural Resources, Community Health Sciences, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, 2022-05-03)
    Most females will experience variability in their menstrual cycle (MC) at some point across the reproductive lifespan (Bull et al., 2019). Current literature suggests that it is important for females to track MC regularity ...
  • Social support among older adults in group physical activity programs 

    Zimmer, Chantelle; McDonough, Meghan H.; Hewson, Jennifer; Toohey, Ann M.; Din, Cari; Crocker, Peter R. E.; Bennett, Erica V. (Taylor and Francis, Kinesiology, University of Calgary, https://authorservices.taylorandfrancis.com/research-impact/sharing-versions-of-journal-articles/, acceptedVersion, 2022-01)
    Group physical activity programs provide opportunities for older adults to receive social support, which is known to be positively associated with physical activity behavior in this population, but further research is ...
  • Lower-limb joint kinetics in jump rope skills performed by competitive athletes 

    Bruce, Olivia L; Ramsay, Mollee; Kennedy, Geneva; Edwards, W Brent (Routledge, Graduate Studies, Kinesiology, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, https://authorservices.taylorandfrancis.com/research-impact/sharing-versions-of-journal-articles/, acceptedVersion, 2020-08-28)
    The purpose of this study was to characterise lower-limb joint kinetics during consecutive double unders and speed step sprints performed by competitive jump rope athletes, and to compare these measurements to running. ...
  • Social Support and Physical Activity in Older Adults: Identifying Predictors Using Data From the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging 

    Zimmer, Chantelle; McDonough, Meghan H. (Human Kinetics, Inc., Kinesiology, University of Calgary, https://journals.humankinetics.com/page/openaccess/open-access, acceptedVersion, 2021-08-04)
    This study examined which of nine forms of social support were the strongest predictors of physical activity in older adults, and to what degree these associations were moderated by eight demographic indicators of groups ...
  • Sarcomere length measurement reliability in single myofibrils 

    Schmidt, Jonas; Jinha, Azim; Herzog, Walter (Elsevier, Kinesiology, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, University of Bremen, Bremen, Germany, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Florianopolis, SC, Brazil, https://www.elsevier.com/about/policies/sharing, acceptedVersion, 2021-07-12)
    Sarcomere length non-uniformities occur at all structural levels of skeletal muscles and have been associated with important mechanical properties. Changes in sarcomere length non-uniformities in the nano- and sub-nanometer ...
  • Experiences With Social Participation in Group Physical Activity Programs for Older Adults 

    Zimmer, Chantelle; McDonough, Meghan H.; Hewson, Jennifer; Toohey, Ann; Din, Cari; Crocker, Peter R.E.; Bennett, Erica V. (Human Kinetics, Inc., Cumming School of Medicine, Kinesiology, Social Work, University of Calgary, University of British Columbia, https://journals.humankinetics.com/page/copyright/copyright-and-permissions, acceptedVersion, 2021-06-24)
    Little is known about how social participation can be facilitated among older adults in group physical activity and its psychosocial benefits that contribute to successful aging. This study aimed to understand older adults’ ...
  • Familial resemblance of bone health in maternal lineage pairs and triads: A scoping review protocol 

    Boisvert, Nicole M.J.; Hayden, K. Alix; Doyle-Baker, Patricia K. (Environmental Design, Graduate Studies, Kinesiology, Libraries and Cultural Resources, Community Health Sciences, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, 2021-05-03)
    Population: Maternal Pairs or Triads. Concept: Familial Resemblance. Context: Bone Health. Primary Question: What is the familial resemblance of bone health in pairs or triads within maternal biological lineage? Secondary ...
  • Stressed volume around vascular canals explains compressive fatigue life variation of secondary osteonal bone but not plexiform bone 

    Loundagin, Lindsay L.; Edwards, William Brent (Elsevier : Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials, Kinesiology, University of Calgary, 2020-01)
    The fatigue life of bone illustrates a large degree of scatter that is likely related to underlying differences in composition and microarchitecture. Vascular canals act as stress concentrations, the magnitude and volume ...
  • Stressed volume estimated by finite element analysis predicts the fatigue life of human cortical bone: The role of vascular canals as stress concentrators 

    Loundagin, Lindsay L.; Pohl, Andrew J.; Edwards, William Brent (Kinesiology, University of Calgary, 2021-02)
    The fatigue life of cortical bone can vary several orders of magnitude, even in identical loading conditions. A portion of this variability is likely related to intracortical microarchitecture and the role of vascular ...
  • The effects of inorganic phosphate on contractile function of slow skeletal muscle fibres are length-dependent 

    Smith, Ian Curtis; Collao, Nicolás; Herzog, Walter (Elsevier : Biochemical & Biophysical Research Communications, Kinesiology, University of Calgary, acceptedVersion, 2020-09-26)
    Muscle operates across a wide range of sarcomere lengths. Inorganic phosphate (Pi) diminishes force output of striated muscle, with greater influence at short relative to long sarcomere lengths in fast skeletal and cardiac ...
