    A bus pulls up at The Ohio State University (OSU) Sports Health and Performance Institute, and a high school basketball team piles out, ready to hit the court. However, this is not an ordinary practice session. While the players go through their paces, cameras monitor their every move, and multiple force plates in the floor log the torques acting on their joints. This is the new world of sports, w...

    Children seem so resilient. They can fall off a moving bike and get right up off the ground, seemingly no worse for the wear. They can leap off the side of a hill and land hard but run off with an ease that makes adults jealous. Nonetheless, kids can and do get hurt, and sometimes those injuries are difficult to spot. A growing number of research groups and companies are now turning their attentio... View full abstract»

    Data on health and wellness from around the world reveal a pattern of less than optimal outcomes for the young and old alike. These results are not limited to the developing world. In fact, a recent report showed that Americans die sooner and experience higher rates of disease and injury than people in other high-income countries [1]. Although the precise causes of these disparities are not fully ... View full abstract»

    The past two centuries have shown radical improvements in health and longevity, with hygiene as the key contributor to this trend in the 19th century and antibiotics and vaccinations in the 20th century. With most infectious diseases largely at bay in the developed world, the greatest contributors to suboptimal health today are largely behavioral. For example, there are three behavioral risk facto...

    With few exceptions, electronic components are rated by their manufacturers to -40 °C (sometimes -55 °C). The operation of electronic components, circuits, and systems at much lower temperatures is called cold electronics, cryogenic electronics, low-temperature electronics, or cryoelectronics. Although not all electronics components are usable at low temperatures, electronic devices ... View full abstract»

    Brain-neural machine interfaces (BNMIs) are systems that allow a user to control an artificial device, such as a computer cursor or a robotic limb, through imagined movements that are measured as neural activity. They provide the potential to restore mobility for those with motor deficiencies caused by stroke, spinal cord injury, or limb amputations. Such systems would have been considered a topic...
