  1. 1. Physiological- and Socio-Cultural Conditions for Performance in Women's Ice Hockey

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Tommy Henriksson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; women s ice hockey; female hockey players; positional characteristics; birth distribution; maturity status; exercise physiology; test methodology; sport; physiological characteristics; fysiologi; Physiology; genusvetenskap; genusvetenskap;

    Abstract : Background: The ice hockey community is founded on masculine norms and values, and the hockey rink is often described as “the home of men’s ice hockey”. Despite a growing popularity, women’s ice hockey has low priority in comparison to the men’s game. READ MORE

  2. 2. A multi-disciplinary approach to studying performance among high-level golfers physiological and biomechanical aspects

    University dissertation from Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Author : James Parker; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carry distance; clubhead speed; driver performance; golf kinematics; sports performance; strength training; isokinetic training;

    Abstract : In competitive golf, the player’s ability to hit the ball a long distance affects the score in a positive way. Swing kinematics is considered an important factor in driver performance; one way of improving swing kinematics is through strength and power training. READ MORE

  3. 3. Roller skis' rolling resistance and grip characteristics influences on physiological and performance measures in cross-country skiers

    University dissertation from Östersund : Mid Sweden University

    Author : Mats Ainegren; Mittuniversitetet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Adjustable grip; blood lactate; centre of pressure; cycle length; cycle rate; economy; efficiency; friction coefficient; heart rate; normal force; OBLA; oxygen uptake; power; ratcheted wheel; ratings of perceived exertion; roller skis; rolling resistance; tangential force; time to exhaustion;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate roller ski characteristics; classical and freestyle roller skis’ rolling resistance coefficients (μR) and classical style roller skis’ static friction coefficients (μS), and to study the influence of different μR and μS on cross-country skiers’ performance and both physiological and biomechanical indices. The aim was also to study differences in skiing economy and efficiency between recreational skiers, female and male junior and senior elite cross-country skiers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Deg/HtrA proteases of the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 from biochemical characterization to their physiological functions

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Xuân Tâm Lâm; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Deg; HtrA; protease; chaperone; Synechocystis sp. PCC 6903; biochemical characterization; physiological function; proteomics; structure;

    Abstract : The family of Deg/HtrA proteases is present in a wide range of organisms from bacteria, archaea to eukaryota. These ATP-independent serine endopeptidases play key roles in the cellular protein quality control. The cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. READ MORE

  5. 5. PHYSIOLOGICAL AND BIOMECHANICAL FACTORS DETERMINING CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING PERFORMANCE
