Sixteen peer-reviewed papers provide the latest research for identifying and developing prevention methodology to help reduce the risk of injury for the participant in outdoor winter sports throughout the world. Topics cover:
Equipmentretention requirements for alpine ski bindings; helmet use and self-reported risk taking in skiing and snowboarding; evaluating the performance of helmet linings incorporating fluid channels; polarizing filters in ski sports; and emergency release for winter sports equipment.
Behaviorriding behavior and reaction times of skiers and snowboarders; gender-specific effects of smoking and alcohol consumption in downhill sking; and hydration levels in all day skiing.
EpidemiologyACL injuries related to fatigue in female skiers; aging trends in Alpine skiing; skiing and boarding injuries on Norwegian slopes during two winter seasons; and skiing and snowboarding injuries in the Czech Republic in Winter Seasons 2003-2008
Biomechanicscase study of relative motion of ACL insertion points in-vivo; jumper kinematics on terrain park jumps; reaction forces and moments in carved turns
