Can mobile tech offer new pathways to improve recovery from serious traumatic injuries?
Serious traumatic injuries are a health event that can begin a trajectory toward chronic health and social challenges. Research on patient outcomes following traumatic injuries establishes the pervasive nature of injuries' long-term consequences in physical, psychological, social and economic well-being, which may persist months and even years after an injury hospitalization. In light of this research, emerging interventions have targeted enhanced and coordinated healthcare services to support recovery and address patients' long-term rehabilitative needs. (2020-09-29)

New research suggests that how people think about their pain can have a significant effect on whether they get enough physical activity - or if they spend more time sedentary. (2020-08-25)

Osteoarthritis: Conservative therapy delays need for knee and hip joint replacement surgery
With implementation of conservative treatment methods like physiotherapy and individually tailored, adjusted exercises, quality of osteoarthritis care can improve and patients can delay the need for an artificial hip or knee joint. This has been demonstrated by a clinical study from Norway that was recently presented at the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR 2020) Online Annual Congress. (2020-08-19)

Waistline matters in kidney disease
Does fat matter in kidney disease? The investigators found that all measures of higher abdominal fat content (including visceral fat, liver fat, or subcutaneous fat) and slower walk times were associated with increased levels of cardiometabolic risk factors in adults with non-dialysis dependent kidney disease. These data highlight that abdominal fat measures and lower physical fitness levels are associated with a higher cardiovascular risk in adults with non-dialysis dependent kidney disease. Waist circumference may be a new vital sign. (2020-08-13)

Sports settings may help engage Australian men in weight loss
Men in Australia are more likely than women to be obese, yet they are underrepresented in weight loss trials. A study published in PLOS Medicine, by Eleanor Quested at Curtin University in Perth, Australia and colleagues found that participants in a men-only, sports-themed weight loss program increased physical activity and lost more weight than men who had not participated, suggesting that men with overweight and obesity may benefit from similarly designed programs. (2020-08-06)

Regular physical activity seems to enhance cognition in children who need it most
Researchers at the Universities of Tsukuba and Kobe re-analyzed data from three experiments that tested whether physical activity interventions lead to improved cognitive skills in children. They found that (1) the benefits of regular exercise on cognition were greater in children who have poor cognitive performance before the intervention and (2) spending time on physical activity did not hinder cognition in children who already had good cognitive performance before the intervention. (2020-07-15)

Healthier school food and physical activity environments matter for childhood obesity
Students at elementary and secondary schools that offer healthier food offerings and more opportunities for physical activities have a healthier body mass index, according to Rutgers researchers. The study, published in Preventive Medicine Reports, uses professional measures of students' height and weight -- the gold standard for studying childhood obesity -- in a study on the effects of a school's food offerings and physical activity environment.

Keep moving to prevent major mobility disability
According to research, being physically inactive is the strongest risk factor for disability as we age. A team of researchers created a study to examine the effects of performing light physical activity and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity on older adults. The researchers were interested in studying how participating in these different intensities of activity, and whether a person spreads their physical activity throughout the day, affects the chances for developing a major mobility disability. (2020-06-11)

Construction of new learning spaces calls for interaction between stakeholders and development of school's operational culture
New modern physical school spaces require open communication between stakeholders in order to be transformed into meaningful learning environments, a new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows. Pre-existing pedagogies or good practices as such cannot be transferred from one space to another. (2020-06-04)

Increased activity not always the best advice for neck and back pain

'The head-tail of tadpoles': The dynamics of polymers with a very singular shape
They are in the shape of a tadpole and interact with each other by harpooning between head and tail, thus presenting unexpected physical properties. In the study, the researchers described how these particular constructs in dense solutions present much 'slower' molecular dynamics compared to that recorded by the two parts that make it up. This is because 'heads' and 'tails' tend to 'capture' each other, in a cascade process. The result is a much less fluid and much more viscous product. (2020-05-13)
