The purpose of this presentation is to describe an approach in which bivariate correlation followed by exploratory factor analysis and structural equation modelling was used to make sense of kinematic parameters for the purpose of predicting time to skate six meters. Two studies were completed in or...

Head rotation, shoulder extension and rotation, ankle plantar and dorsiflexion, hip flexion, and sit and reach (SR) scores were examined in 41 women and 39 men, aged 45–75 years. The SR gave more reproducible data than the other measurements (intraclass test/retest correlation over 8 months, r = ....

Background With the invention of the ion-selective electrode (ISE), ionic magnesium (iMg) is a common blood assay. This could be advantageous, as iMg is the biologically active form of Mg. There is some evidence that iMg has considerable within subject variability. Results Individual ranges averag...

Isometric handgrip force, isokinetic knee flexion and extension torque, and anthropometric data were obtained on 67 older men and women (ranging in age from 45 to 75 years, mean 59.7 years). Hydrostatic and skinfold estimates of lean body mass were quite closely correlated with each other in this sa...

This poster/demo describes the development, implementation, and evaluation of an "on-line" introduction to an undergraduate course in quantitative methods. The virtual curriculum modules developed for the course provided a forum in which information, knowledge, expertise, and questions could be expl...

Cardiorespiratory and gas exchange responses to a moderate, standardized treadmill walking task showed a weak circadian rhythm, with larger superimposed peaks attributable to feeding. However, both rhythms became progressively attenuated during a period of sleep deprivation. A method of exploring th...

Traditionally data processing in applied biomechanics has relied on descriptive approaches. Although these are effective exploratory techniques, they may not provide an understanding of the interaction between the variables that describe the event across repeated sampling. Factor analysis is a stati...

Several studies have reported post-exercise increases of urinary concentrations of plasma proteins. However, under normal conditions, through mechanisms of size and electrical charge selection, the kidney restricts the clearance of molecules as large as albumin. Post-exercise increases in albuminuri...

Formerly a self-governed profession, in the Province of Ontario, Canada, kinesiology was designated a regulated profession under the Regulated Health Professions Act (1991). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the per- ceptions of current health delivery agents to the regulation of kinesiology...

It was proposed that zinc reproductive outcome in the rat. guanidinoethyl sulfonate (GES), and taurine interact in vivo to influence The effect of taurine deficiency induced by a taurine transport antagonist, on fetal development was examined. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were mated overnight and assi...

Recent reports that habitual marathon runners demonstrate higher levels of stiffness and cardiovascular risk factors have been of great interest to the medical and scientific community. Ultra-marathon running, that is any distance >42.2 km, is increasing in popularity; however, little is known regar...

There is a growing interest in training for and competing in race distances that exceed the marathon; however, little is known regarding the vascular effects of participation in such prolonged events, which last multiple consecutive hours. There exists some evidence that cardiovascular function may ...

The purpose of this study was to assess the moderating effect of individual difference variables (need for achievement, perceived personal competence and role clarity) on the relationships between core job dimensions and valued outcomes (motivation, job involvement and the propensity to leave an org...

Purpose: To assess adults' knowledge of dietary recommendations, food sources of key nutrients, food choices, and diet-disease relationships. Methods: A previously validated survey, designed to assess nutrition knowledge, was adapted for use in Prince Edward Island and mailed to a random sample of 3...

OBJECTIVE: Although the majority of Canadian provinces have indicated that they have adopted new school nutrition policies, there have been few if any systematic evaluations of these policies. In Prince Edward Island, a nutrition policy for elementary schools was adopted province-wide in 2006. In th...

Purpose: The study was conducted to identify the enabling and barrier factors in the development of nutrition policies in Prince Edward Island elementary and consolidated schools. Methods: A document review and in-depth interviews were conducted with key stakeholders (n=12). Results: Principals were...
