  • Howard, Róisín Marie (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Muscles are the key drivers in any human movement. Since the muscles generate the forces and consequently the impulses to move the athlete from one position to another, it can be useful to study the muscle activity during ...
  • Healy, Robin; Howard, Róisín Marie; Kenny, Ian C.; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in 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 ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2015)
    The purpose of this study was to provide a descriptive analysis of the phasic muscle activity of 8 lower limb muscles during performance of the shot put field event in track and field athletics. Six shot putters performed ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (Physical Education and Sport Sciences, University of Limerick, 2015)
    Vertical jumps, such as drop jumps (DJ) and countermovement jumps (CMJ) are a very important measure in sports biomechanics research routinely used to monitor levels of performance in sports training and conditioning. As ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (The Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2014)
    A method of estimating force using an accelerometer is presented. This model is based on estimating the resultant acceleration of a body at its centre of mass using a triaxial accelerometer. A data set of ground reaction ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (26th Irish Signals and Systems Conference, 2015)
    The purpose of this study was to explore the use of Independent Component Analysis (ICA) on surface Electromyography (EMG) data to distinguish between individual muscle activations due to its capabilities for signal ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; 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 ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (Taylor and Francies, 2016)
    This paper examines the use of sensor devices in sports biomechanics, focusing on current frequency of use of Electromyography (EMG) device preferences. Researchers in the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics, 2015)
    The purpose of this study was to explore the use of Independent Component Analysis (ICA) on Electromyography (EMG) data to distinguish between individual muscle activations due to its capabilities of signal separation. ...
