Using Wearable Inertial Sensors to Estimate Kinematic Parameters and Variability in the Table Tennis Topspin Forehand Stroke.

Appl Bionics Biomech 2020 10;2020:8413948. Epub 2020 May 10.

Division of Biomechanics, Faculty of Physical Education, University School of Physical Education in Wrocław, Wrocław, Poland.

The study examined kinematic parameters and their inter- and intrasubject variability in the topspin forehand of seven top-level table tennis players. A wireless inertial measurement unit (IMU) system measured the movement of the playing hand to analyze the Ready position, Backswing, and Forward events, and a racket-mounted piezoelectric sensor captured the racket-ball Contact. In a four-phase cycle (Backswing, Hitting, Followthrough, and Back to Ready position), body sensors recorded the cycle and phase duration; angles in the sagittal plane at the shoulder, elbow, and wrist of the playing hand and at the knee joints; and acceleration of the playing hand at the moment of racket-ball contact.

Anconeus-Sparing Minimally Invasive Approach for Lateral Ulnar Collateral Ligament Reconstruction in Posterolateral Elbow Instability.

Arthrosc Tech 2020 Mar 5;9(3):e315-e319. Epub 2020 Feb 5.

sporthopaedicum, Straubing and Regensburg and Department of Trauma Surgery, University Medical Center, Regensburg, Germany.

Posterolateral elbow instability with an insufficiency of the lateral ulnar collateral ligament commonly results from elbow trauma. However, other etiologies such as iatrogenic injuries after primary surgical treatment for lateral epicondylitis or repetitive corticosteroid injections also may lead to a lateral ulnar collateral ligament insufficiency. In these cases, surgical treatment can help to restore posterolateral stability of the elbow. Read More

A kinematic analysis of the upper limb during the topspin double-handed backhand stroke in tennis.

Sports Biomech 2020 Mar 6:1-19. Epub 2020 Mar 6.

School of Allied Health, Human Services, and Sport, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia.

The purpose of this study was to compare double-handed backhand kinematics of the non-dominant wrist of tennis players using either an eastern or continental grip position with the non-dominant hand. Trajectory data were captured using sixty reflective markers on sixteen sub-elite right-handed tennis players using a 12-camera VICON motion capture system (250 Hz). Participants executed double-handed backhands using two non-dominant grip positions (Eastern [E] and Continental [C]), aiming for two crosscourt zones (Deep [D] and Short [S]), totalling to four conditions (ED, CD, ES and CS).
