Esophageal temperature 2 [video]

Ollie Jay
This video is a part of the project: "Assessing thermoregulatory deficits in athletes with a spinal cord injury" This video is Part 2 of a three part series produced by the research group in the Thermal Ergonomics Laboratory at the University of Sydney to demonstrate measuring of esophageal temperature. Part 2 shows how to complete the insertion of an esophageal probe.

Plethysmography 6a - Analysis [video]

Ollie Jay
The Plethysmography videos are for measuring limb blood flow with strain gauge plethysmography, using the DualSGP program. Analysis requires use of Notepad and Excel.

Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy: Pancreas fat analysis

Nathan Johnson
Study: Novel Exercise Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes (HIIT Diabetes) Recent advances in non-invasive imaging techniques have increased the capacity for human research on human pancreas fat (1). A “fatty pancreas” may contribute significantly to the underlying cardiovascular and metabolic dysfunction observed in obesity and related type 2 diabetes (2,3), including beta cell dysfunction (4,5), and diet intervention alone or in combination with bariatric surgery, may reduce pancreas fat and improve pancreatic function (6-9). This...

Participant Information Sheet - Targeting metabolic and vascular health with high intensity exercise training in type 2 diabetes

This participant information sheet was used in the collection of data for Associate Professor Nathan Johnson's study "Novel Exercise Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes (HIIT Diabetes)".

Gold Coast Case Study

Jane E. Hunt
Many key foundational moments in the development of modern triathlon took place on the Gold Coast. From the first triathlon held on the Gold Coast in April 1980 to the up coming 2018 Triathlon World Championships, the Gold Coast’s triathlon history is interlinked with the broader history of the sport of triathlon as well as the growth and evolution of the Gold Coast itself. It is hardly accidental that the 2018 world championships represents the...

Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA)

Daniel Hackett
Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), was first developed to assess bone mass, however it also provides information on fat mass (FM) and fat-free mass (FFM) (Mazess et al., 1990) As such, the DXA is commonly used to assess body composition in both research and clinical practice Participants of this study will be scanned using the Lunar Prodigy (GE Lunar Corp, Madison, WI). The DXA machine is controlled by the computer which is loaded with enCORE software...

Skin temperature

Peta Forsyth
Skin surface temperature can be measured using temperature sensors, typically in the form of thermocouples or thermistors. Thermocouples are temperature sensors containing two different metals that, when heated or cooled, produce a change in electrical potential (voltage) associated with the change in temperature. In the present study, skin temperature is measured using heat flow discs, which are thermocouples. Temperature is measured on both sides of the disc to determine dry heat transfer. Mean skin temperature...

Local Sweat Rate - 2 [video]

Ollie Jay
How to open up and load the Local Sweat Rate, VSweat, program. The VSweat program measures local sweat rate.

Participant Information Statement - Physique traits, muscle performance and health status of natural bodybuilders and powerlifters

Daniel Hackett
This five page information statement details participant time commitments, tests to be undertaken and potential benefits and risks. It addresses specific questions such as: What is the study about? Who is carrying out the study? and What does the study involve?

Nepean Triathlon

Jane Hunt
Greg Reddan (white wetsuit) emerging from the water after completing the swim leg of a race; fellow competitors in the water on the outbound swim. The Nepean Triathlon was first held in December 1982. Greg Reddan won the race in 1982. Distances were around 800m/40km/14km in the 1980s.

The genetics of running-induced injuries involving tendon and bone – epidemiological study

Silvia Manzanero, Maria Kozlovskaia, Nicole Vlahovich & Rebecca Grealy
The purpose of the study is to discover and investigate risk factors for Achilles tendinopathy and bone stress injuries, and to systemise and make this data applicable for a preventive strategy against overuse injuries. Due to the high popularity of running in Australia and relative high incidence of overuse injuries during running, recreational runners were selected as the study group. Research questions: 1. What is the current incidence of overuse injuries and what are the...

Ollie Jay
This video is Part 1 of a three part series produced by the research group in the Thermal Ergonomics Laboratory at the University of Sydney to demonstrate measuring of esophageal temperature.
