Biomechanical assessment of the connection between risk of wrist fracture and the dumbbell chest press exercise performed on an exercise ball.

Category: Publication Author: Desmoulin G.T. and Rabinoff M. Publication: Int. J. Forensic Engineering, Vol. 2, No. 4, 2015. Multiple incidents of exercise balls bursting during a dumbbell chest press have been reported. This study quantified the dynamics of the dumbbell chest press performed on such balls and the force applied throughout the exercise cycle. To […]

A Biomechanical Method for Reconstruction of Tumbling Trampoline Associated

Category: Publication Author: Desmoulin G.T., Rabinoff M., Stolz B., and Gilbert M. Publication: J of Forensic Biomechanics, 2014, 5(1): 101-7. Rebound devices such as trampolines are associated with catastrophic spinal cord injuries. Cadaveric studies have reported thresholds for injuries that can be applied to the case of failed acrobatics such as backward somersaults. However, it […]

Blast Mitigation Status of Police Crowd Management Ensembles

Category: Publication Author: Desmoulin, G. T., Dionne, J.P. Publication: White Paper, 2012. Between 1992 and 2002, more U.S. citizens were wounded or killed from explosives within U.S. borders than all of the international terrorist incidents that occurred during this same time. Yet, according to some researchers, the U.S. healthcare system still considers terrorism an international […]

Spinal Intervention Efficacy on Correcting Cervical Vertebral Axes of Rotation and the Resulting Improvements in Pain, Disability and Psychsocial Measures

Category: Publication Author: Desmoulin G. T., Szostek J. S., Khan A. H., Al-Ameri O. S., Hunter C. J., Bogduk N. Publication: Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain, 2012, 20(1): 31-40. Mean axes of rotation [MAR] of cervical joints are an effective measure of spine pathology. Khan Kinetic Treatment [KKT] is known to relieve symptoms, but its biomechanical […]

Effectiveness of Slow Rate Practice Techniques

Category: Publication Author: Desmoulin G. T., and Larkin T. Publication: White Paper, 2012. The purpose of this paper is for GTD Engineering’s Geoff Desmoulin (GTD) to give scientific insight into slow movement training techniques developed and tested by Target Focus Training’s (TFT) Tim Larkin. In doing so GTD helps validate, continually improves, and, further develops […]
