Estimating Percent Body Fat and Fat Free Mass in Athletic Males and Females Using Field and Laboratory Methods
Abstract: Analysis of young athletes' body compositions is important for optimum performance and assessing the effects of training. However, no previous studies have demonstrated the validity of the various laboratory and field methods available for measuring body composition in young athletes, including HW, BP, SF, and US, compared to the Siri-3C model. The purpose of this study was to determine %fat and FFM estimates using these methods (HW, US, SF, and ADP via the BP), and to compare them to the Siri-3C model. The second purpose was to compare Db, %fat and FFM estimates using HW to estimates using both US and SF. 107 healthy athletes (43 men and 64 women, age = 14 - 30 yrs) participated the study.

The Analysis of the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Athletic Therapeutic Perceptions of Current Ankle Injury Prevention Protocols and Practice at the Collegiate Level
Abstract: The Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) athletic therapeutic perceptions of current ankle injury prevention protocols and practice were analyzed by asking three research questions: What were the current methods of ankle injury prevention being utilized at Canadian universities? Were the methods used adequate? And do universities need more information concerning ankle injury prevention? The literature suggests that there are numerous methods of ankle injury prevention as well as tests that can show an individual's predisposition to ankle injury. Selected Athletic Therapists from CIS schools participated in a perception survey to answer the research questions. Current methods of ankle injury prevention are being used. Athletic therapists should increase the number of recommended methods. Universities have adequate information. The hypothesis that current methods of ankle injury prevention are not statistically significantly decreasing the frequency of normative, non-traumatic ankle injuries such as rolls or minor sprains.
