Excerpt: The relationship between Achilles tendon ultrasound abnormalities, including a spindle shape and heterogeneous echogenicity, is unclear. This study investigated the relationship between these abnormalities, tendon thickness, Doppler flow and pain. Sixty-one badminton players (122 tendons, 36 men, and 25 women) were recruited. Achilles tendon thickness, shape (spindle, parallel), echogenicity (heterogeneous, homogeneous) and Doppler flow (present or absent) were measured bilaterally with ultrasound. Achilles tendon pain (during or after activity over the last week) and pain and function [Victor

Excerpt: An interviewer-administered survey to investigate playing situations of ACL injury and a laboratory study which included a motion analysis of frequently performed movements was conducted to demonstrate the ACL injury mechanism in badminton. The interview with 21 ACL-injured badminton players showed that 2 typical injury situations related to the sports-specific movement. One is ACL injury opposite to the racket-hand side during a single-leg-landing after an overhead stroke in the backhand side of the court, and the other is that of the racket-hand side in the course of a plant-and-cut maneuver

Excerpt: Investigated the physical education activity preferences of middle school students who completed a checklist featuring a variety of activities. Overall, middle school boys and girls both differed and agreed on their interests for specific activities. Most students liked basketball, bicycling, roller skating, soccer, swimming, and volleyball but disliked folk and square dancing, shuffleboard, badminton, and field and floor hockey

Excerpt: In this paper, we propose an idea of recognizing the activities of a badminton game which has the potential to be useful in simulating the Badminton Sport. We have used motion sensors (e.g. Accelerometer, Gyroscope) to recognize different activities like, serve, smash, backhand, forehand, return etc. We have collected data from a large set of users and labeled their data over several instances. We have applied the K-Nearest Neighbors (k-NN) and Support Vector Machines (SVM) classifiers to recognize those activities. Existing approaches (e.g. Microsoft Xbox 360) used vision based techniques to

Excerpt: During 1990-1994, 1.2% of all sports injuries that required emergency care at the University Hospital of Umeå were caused by badminton. In 90.7% of the cases the patients described themselves as recreational players or beginners. There were 51.3% minor injuries (AIS 1) and 48.7% moderate injuries (AIS 2). The lower extremities were affected in 92.3% of the cases. Achilles tendon ruptures (34.6%) and ankle sprains and fractures (29.5%) were the most frequent. By the time of the follow-up (10-69 months), 52.6% of the players still had symptoms from the injuries and 39.5% had not been able to re

Excerpt: It has previously been shown that a loaded warm-up may improve power performances. We examined the acute effects of loaded dynamic warm-up on change of direction speed (CODS), which had not been previously investigated. Eight elite badminton players participated in three sessions during which they performed vertical countermovement jump and CODS tests before and after undertaking the dynamic warm-up. The three warm-up conditions involved wearing a weighted vest (a) equivalent to 5% body mass, (b) equivalent to 10% body mass, and (c) a control where a weighted vest was not worn. Vertical jump a

Excerpt: The shuttlecock used in the game of badminton has astonishing aerodynamic characteristics. The shuttlecock which has an open conical shape is the smallest ballistic coefficient and exhibits the largest in-flight deceleration of any airborne sporting implement. The ballistic coefficient of a body is a measure of its ability to overcome air resistance in flight and is inversely proportional to the deceleration. To evaluate correctly the forces acting the shuttlecock, it is necessary to know the in-flight properties determined from the aerodynamics. The purpose of this study is to investigate th

Excerpt: A computational study is carried out to understand the aerodynamics of shuttlecocks used in the sport of badminton. The speed of the shuttlecock considered is in the range of 25–50 m/s. The relative contribution of various parts of the shuttlecock to the overall drag is studied. It is found that the feathers, and the net in the case of a synthetic shuttlecock, contribute the maximum. The gaps, in the lower section of the skirt, play a major role in entraining the surrounding fluid and causing a difference between the pressure inside and outside the skirt. This pressure difference leads to d

Excerpt: At present, no agreement on a precise definition of agility within the sports science community exists. The term is applied to a broad range of sport contexts, but with such great inconsistency, it further complicates our understanding of what trainable components may enhance agility. A new definition of agility is proposed: “a rapid whole-body movement with change of velocity or direction in response to a stimulus”. Agility has relationships with trainable physical qualities such as strength, power and technique, as well as cognitive components such as visual-scanning techniques,

Excerpt: Background: Data on agility skills in different populations using pre-planned, change of direction speed tests have previously been reported. However, there are no available data on the agility times of athletes specializing in different sports obtained from Reactive agility tests. Objective: The study compares agility time in groups of athletes of different sports where agility is one of the limiting factors of performance. Methods: Altogether 282 athletes of 14 sport specializations performed the Agility test. Their task was to touch, as fast as possible, with either the left or the right f

Excerpt: Neuroimaging studies of professional athletic or musical training have demonstrated considerable practicedependent plasticity in various brain structures, which may reflect distinct training demands. In the present study, structural and functional brain alterations were examined in professional badminton players and compared with healthy controls using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and resting-state functional MRI. Gray matter concentration (GMC) was assessed using voxel-based morphometry (VBM), and resting-brain functions were measured by amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation (ALFF) and s

Excerpt: In 7 men and 5 women, we measured the amounts of sweat and fluid intake, and the ionic composition of sweat during a 3-hour badminton practice in summer. The amount of sweat was calculated as follows; body weight before practice (g)–body weight after practice (g)–urine volume (ml) +fluid intake (ml). We collected sweat by covering the non-dominant forearm with a plastic bag.

Excerpt: Exercise is one of the prime ingredients of successful management of various muscle disorders. Without doubt, sport is an enjoyable way of exercising, and young patients in particular are very keen. However, for some patients, care and vigilance with regard to their disease and/or concurrent medical treatments is a prerequisite when exercise is prescribed. In this letter, we describe an amateur badminton player with juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) and briefly consider the pros and cons of exercise therapy for such patients.

Excerpt: In the analysis of sport, it is difficult to establish which circumstances and elements that take place during the different stages of the game determine the success or failure of actions in play. This research intends to establish the possible relationship between some of these performance indicators, such as unforced errors and winning shots, and the final result of the match. To this end, a comparison has been drawn up between the modalities of men’s singles and women’s singles, as well as among different level groups in order to identify the differences existing among them

Excerpt: This study examined the use of the Skills Acquistion Trainer for Badminton (SATB) software as a visual based training (VBT) method for a group of 41 participants. Using this program, we identified the athlete’s skill level and awareness, and attempted to improve their overall in-game performance and decision making skills. Three different types of analyses were conducted on the SATB over the ten weeks of experimentation. Firstly, discriminant analysis was used to assess the accuracy that the SATB program had in classifying participants into the correct skill level groups. Secondly, a repeate
