Min Jung Kim; Stephen Thomas Fairbanks – String Research Journal, 2024
The purpose of this article is to revisit the biomechanical concepts of Paul Rolland's scholarship on bowing to provide a new framework of Rolland's underlying bowing principles. First, we discuss how whole body movements help facilitate natural bowing, which can generate better tone efficiently from freedom of movement. Second, we attend to the…

Ghada Jouira; Rihab Borji; Fatma Ben Waer; Selim Srihi; Haithem Rebai; Sonia Sahli – Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2024
Background: This study aims to investigate the impact of neuromuscular training (NMT) on static and dynamic postural balance (PB) among high-level male runners with intellectual disability. Method: Twenty-seven runners were randomly assigned to a NMT group and a control group who maintained their conventional training. Static and dynamic PB were…

Nicolas Michinov; Estelle Michinov – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
Embodied creativity research has begun to demonstrate that postures may boost creative performance depending on whether the creativity task requires either divergent or convergent thinking processes. Although a few studies have demonstrated that being in an expansive posture can benefit creative performance in a divergent-exploratory thinking…

Anna Hiemstra; Makiko Sadakata – String Research Journal, 2024
Playing the violin demands highly skilled motor performance, including advanced bimanual coordination and controlled, independent movement of fingers. Through existing literature, the current study aims to demonstrate how young children's motor development relates to the motor demands of violin playing, specifically the demands on the left hand,…

Cox, Dannon G.; Stoepker, Peter – Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, 2021
Practicing yoga in the classroom has been shown to positively change student behavior and to promote self-regulation. However, it can be difficult for teachers to incorporate yoga if knowledge and resources are limited. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to provide strategies for teachers to integrate breathing and yoga postures into the…

Garcia-Masso, Xavier; Salvador-Fuertes, Alvaro; Sanchez-Santacreu, Miguel; Borrego, Adrian; Llorens, Roberto – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2023
This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of customized exergames, with different cognitive loads, on static and dynamic postural control compared with traditional exercises in a group of adolescents. The participants in this study were 30 healthy adolescents, aged 12-14 years, divided into three groups. Each group trained for two weeks (2…

Eustace, Steven James; Wdowski, Maximilian; Tallis, Jason; Duncan, Michael – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
This study assessed whether trunk flexor and extensor strength were predictors of time to stability (TTS) and center of pressure (CoP) during hop and hold tasks in children. Seventeen boys (age, 10.1 ± 1.6 years; height, 1.45 ± 0.11 m; mass, 26.7 ± 7.83 kg) undertook isokinetic strength assessments of concentric and eccentric trunk…

Wessels, Marleen D.; Van Assen, Arjen A. G.; Post, Wendy J.; Van der Putten, Annette A. J. – Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, 2023
Background: There are no psychometrically validated instruments available to measure motor skills of children with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD). In this study, the construct validity and reliability (Rho) of the Motor Development List for children with PIMD (MDL-PIMD), a proxy-reported measure, was investigated. Methods:…

Kuo-Chin Lin; Cheng-Wen Ko; Hui-Chun Hung; Nian-Shing Chen – Interactive Learning Environments, 2023
Badminton is a very popular subject in Physical Education (PE). Many students enroll badminton courses in every semester which pose a tremendous teaching load to the instructors. The one-on-one guiding/feedback time provided by the instructor to each student is also greatly reduced. To overcome this challenge, some studies have tried to adopt pose…

Caroline R. van der Mescht – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2023
Background: The context of this research is reading literacy instruction in Foundation Phase classrooms in South Africa. Although large-scale studies have researched learner performance, little is known of the nuances of teachers' practice, particularly in the non-verbal realm. This research seeks to address that gap. Aim: This research…

Lee, Jihyun; Tomimbang, Adriane Cris; Lim, Jongil – Educational Gerontology, 2022
This pilot study was conducted to identify the effects of an 8-week aquatics program with peer-led learning on the functional fitness, postural stability, self-efficacy, and quality of life in older adults. Twenty older adults with a mean age of 65.5 were assigned to either a non-peer-led group or a peer-led-group. Both groups received 60-min…

Wiley, Faith; Raphael, Rebeccah; Ghanouni, Parisa – Early Child Development and Care, 2021
Appropriate positioning maintains preterm infants in symmetrical posture and is important for stress reduction and impacting neurological or musculoskeletal development. This review was performed to elucidate which positioning methods emerge as the most beneficial. Several databases were searched using search terms for neonatal intensive care,…

Aoki, Hiroki; Demura, Shin-ichi; Takahashi, Kenji; Hirai, Hiroshi – World Journal of Education, 2021
Recently, to evaluate dynamic balance ability, a stipulated tempo step test has been developed, and a step error between tempo and contact time of feet has been used as an evaluation variable. The step error, postural sway, and their relationships may differ between the slow tempo (40 bpm) and fast tempo (120 bpm). This study aimed to examine the…

Matthew Sargent; Alex LePage; Yoed N. Kenett; Heath E. Matheson – Creativity Research Journal, 2023
Accounts of embodied cognition suggest that environmental scene and motor information can be used in a type of neural simulation when generating creative uses for manipulable objects. A scarce amount of studies suggests that the state of the body and environment play a role in people's ability to devise creative uses for objects. In this…
