  • Kennedy, Thomas; Rowan, Fiachra; Condon, Finbarr; Kenny, Ian; Anderson, Ross; Dunne, Colum (Springer, 2012)
  • Kenny, Ian; Wallace, Eric S.; Otto, Steve R. (Taylor & Francis, 2009)
  • Kenny, Ian (Irish Independent, 2012)
    Few sports require such a range of equipment as does the game of golf. There are different types of golf clubs, such as drivers and irons, and balls to suit different occasions and conditions – and all are constantly being ...
  • Kenny, Ian (University of Ulster, 2006)
    The purpose of this thesis was to determine how shaft length affects golf driving performance. Shaft length effects on the golf swing have been of interest to several researchers (including Egret et al., 2003; Reyes and ...
  • Kenny, Ian; Madden, Darragh; Downey, Jennifer; Murray, Paraic; Campbell, Jane; Breen, Sarah (University of Ulster, 2012)
    INTRODUCTION The forces transmitted through the knee throughout the golf swing have been found to be as high as those associated with running (Colwell et al., 2005) therefore playing golf with a knee that has undergone ...
  • Kenny, Ian; Madden, Darragh; Downey, Jennifer; Murray, Paraic; Campbell, Jane; Breen, Sarah (Graduate Entry Medical School, University of Limerick, 18/10/2013)
    BACKGROUND Biomechanical computers models to date have not reported in detail how the models are validated and applied. The aim of the current study was to develop a biofidelic full-body musculoskeletal computer model to ...
  • Norris, Michelle; Kenny, Ian; Anderson, Ross (University Hospitals Limerick, 2014)
    Introduction: The cost of poor health has in recent years caused an extensive economic burden to the state as expensive laboratory measurement methods are heavily relied upon. As we make effort to lower this cost researchers ...
  • Campbell, Mark; Moran, Aidan; Kenny, Ian (British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, 2013)
    To date, there has been a dearth of research examining characteristics of expert performance in able and disabled golfers. With golf becoming an olympic sport and probable future paralympic sport there needs to be an ...
  • 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 ...
  • Byrne, Derek; Kenny, Ian (ISBS, 2008)
    INTRODUCTION: The widespread growth of golf is mainly due to its accessibility to people of all ages, socio-economic backgrounds and skill levels (Hume et al., 2005). To correspond with this increased participation, research ...
  • Anderson, Ross; Kenny, Ian; Tucker, Catherine; O'Halloran, Joseph (2010)
    INTRODUCTION: Recently, a large amount of research has been focused on the effect of movement variability on human performance in sport. It is now generally accepted that specific amounts of variability are essential to ...
  • Sato, Kimitake; Kenny, Ian; Dale, R. Barry (2013)
    Objectives: The review paper addresses current interests among golfers emphasizing importance of physical improvement specifically on flexibility, balance and stability, and strength and power. Design: The review paper ...
  • Kenny, Ian; Sprevak, Dan; Sharp, Craig; Boreham, Colin (De Gruyter, 2005)
    In a recent communication, Van Damme et al (1) presented a statistical analysis of the performance of world-ranked decathletes, and made inferences about the ability of these athletes to respond uniformly to the demands ...
  • Kenny, Ian; Wallace, Eric S.; Otto, Steve R.; Brown, Desmond (Exercise and Sports Sciences Association of Ireland, 2005)
    Introduction. Computer simulation models permit the study of the complex interactions between biomechanical variables, yet their application to the scientific study of the golf swing is still in an early phase of development. ...
  • Tucker, Catherine; Kenny, Ian; Anderson, Ross (Elsevier, 2010)
    Despite an increase in the number of full-body three-dimensional computer models of the golf swing reported in the literature, many authors do not report in detail how the models are validated. Therefore, the aim of this ...
  • Norris, Michelle; Breen, Sarah; Anderson, Ross; Kenny, Ian (2012)
    The purpose of this study was to develop a novel protocol to be used in assessing performance outcomes in projectile sports. This study also wanted to establish if variability within a movement pattern (throwing) is ...
  • Kenny, Ian; Wallace, Eric S.; Otto, Steve R. (Springer, 2008)
    In recent years studies have been carried out on single subjects, for example by Kinugasa et al., 2004. It has been reported that it is unlikely any two golfers will have an identical swing, and even that an individual ...
  • Kenny, Ian; Anderson, Ross (2010)
    INTRODUCTION: No study to date has reported if and how the use of body markers used in three dimensional optical tracking methods to study swing kinematics in golf affect movement performance. Egret et al. (2004) studied ...
  • Beattie, Kris; Lyons, Mark; Carson, Brian; Kenny, Ian (Physical Education and Sport Sciences, University of Limerick, 2015)
    Introduction Strength training can improve neuromuscular function in athletes (Zatsiorky, 1995). Previous literature has demonstrated that strength training can improve key performance indicators (i.e. economy, velocity ...
  • Beattie, Kris; Kenny, Ian; Lyons, Mark; Carson, Brian P (Springer, 2014)
    BACKGROUND: Economy, velocity/power at maximal oxygen uptake ([Formula: see text]) and endurance-specific muscle power tests (i.e. maximal anaerobic running velocity; vMART), are now thought to be the best performance ...
