Longitudinal and cross-sectional associations between physical activity, screen time, and fitness in a sample of young children from Edmonton, CanadaDownload
Background: High fitness is associated with several positive health outcomes; however, fitness of Canadian children has declined over the past two decades. Correlates of fitness in children under 10 years of age are relatively unexplored, and few studies involving young children have looked at...
When interacting with an object, humans are quite effective at navigating their hand to an object, grasping it, and acting on it. The level of ease with which we do this masks the complex interplay of sensory modalities that is occurring. This study utilizes a head-mounted eye-tracker and...
Effect of Laying Hen Housing Environment and Genetic Strain on Meat Quality and Skeletal Muscle Physicochemical PropertiesDownload
Skeletal muscle is an adaptable, multi-faceted tissue that is essential for whole body movement and metabolism. When a production animal is slaughtered, its muscle goes through complex physical and biochemical changes including a shift from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism resulting in the...
“It’s hard when people try and get their kids away from Cole”: Stories of (in)dignity from a family experiencing autismDownload
Dignity encompasses feelings of self-respect and worth (Nordenfelt, 2004). These feelings can be shattered by the cruel acts of others, resulting in humiliation or embarrassment (Johnston, Goodwin, & Leo, 2015). It has been argued that children with autism experience increased rates of indignity...
Tibial torsion influences lower body joint kinematics and kinetics in women with anterior cruciate ligament injury during squatting and landingDownload
External tibial torsion is an individual anatomical variation in the leg segment that alters musculoskeletal alignment which may increase risk of ACL rupture; however, the effect of external tibial torsion on lower body kinematics in healthy and ACL injured populations is underreported. The...
The purpose of this thesis was to explore the perspectives of sport parents to understand factors, in particular messages that impact parents and their decisions within the context of children’s sport and free play. Guided by interpretive description (ID), data were collected through interviews...
Exploring South Korean Sports Organizations' Future Initiatives for Early Retirement of Basketball Student AthletesDownload
Abstract Introduction: Over 90 percent of basketball student athletes in South Korea retire early before they reach the elite level. After their early retirement, they struggle to adapt to their school lives, and to live the rest of their lives as non-student athletes. The pupose of this study...
Adapted physical activity (APA) has historically used disability-related Community Service Learning (CSL) or practicum placements in undergraduate education (Connolly, 1994; Hodge, Tannehill, & Kluge, 2003). CSL is a tool used to benefit students through enhanced academic learning, increased...
The purpose of this study was to estimate energy availability (EA) in healthy females taking oral contraceptive pills (OCP). Participants (n=12 athletes and n=11 non-athletes) completed 2 separate 7-day dietary intake and exercise energy expenditure (EEE) logs across two consecutive pill cycles....
Children’s literature is a powerful medium through which meanings about the body are normalized and conveyed during childhood (Hunt, 1985; Peterson-Bender & Lach, 1990; Rogers, 1999; Rogers, 2008; Saric, 2005; Stallcup, 2004). Although textual analysis is a common approach to the socio-cultural...
