  • Howard, Róisín; Healy, Robin; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2014)
    The purpose of this study was to compare force calculated using accelerometer data from the SHIMMER device, with force platform data on countermovement and drop jumps. Twelve physically active adults performed 5 counter ...
  • Furlong, Laura-Anne M; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2014)
    Increasing loading is one of the most common methods used to increase exercise intensity but it is important to consider the influence of the increase on subsequent force output, rate of force development and, in the case ...
  • Healy, Robin; Howard, Róisín; Kenny, Ian; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics of Sport, 2014)
    The purpose of this study was to compare the use of both a force platform and Optojump photocell system (Microgate, Bolzano, Italy) to examine double leg and single leg drop jumps. Thirteen physically active individuals ...
  • Jensen, Randall L.; Furlong, Laura-Anne M; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2014)
    This study examined the relationship of countermovement (CMJ), squat (SJ), and rebound jumps (RBJ), estimated 1RM back squat (SQ), contact time (CT) and Reactive Strength Index (RSI) for the RBJ to 30 m sprint time of ...
  • Harrison, Andrew J (Internatinal Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2014)
    This paper reconsiders the challenge of analysing coordination in human movement with particular emphasis on the application of Functional Data Analysis and Functional Principal Component Analysis. The process of Functional ...
