Multiple Repeated-Sprint Ability Test With Four Changes of Direction for Badminton Players (Part 2): Predicting Skill Level With Anthropometry, Strength, Shuttlecock, and Displacement Velocity

Phomsoupha, M and Laffaye, G. Multiple repeated-sprint ability test with four changes of direction for badminton players (part 2): predicting skill level with anthropometry, strength, shuttlecock, and displacement velocity. J Strength Cond Res 34(1): 203–211, 2020—The goal of this study was: (a) to assess general and specific lower and upper limb force, shuttlecock velocity, displacement ability, and the anthropometric characteristics of badminton players at 5 skill levels, and (b) to predict individual players' number of points. We divided 83 participants into groups of novice (n = 15), intermediate (n = 16), skilled (n = 23), highly skilled (n = 14), and elite (n = 15) players. The number of points scored for each player performing tournaments (excluding novices) during the entire season was used as a continuous and dependent variable after logarithmic transformation for correlational study. Anthropometric measurements of height, mass, percentage of fat, and muscle were recorded, along with shuttlecock maximal velocity during smashes. Upper limb power and lower limb force were recorded during jumps and handgrip strength. We also assessed players' ability to move quickly around the court through an on-court multiple repetition-sprint ability in badminton (MRSAB) test with 4 changes of direction. All variables were combined in a multiple regression model. The main findings were that the major contributor to skill level is shuttlecock velocity (r = 0.86), the time ...

Conclusions Similar to other childhood-onset conditions, adolescents and young adults with OI require education and mentorship, and clinicians in the adult healthcare system need to be prepared and supported to receive them. Collective efforts are needed to improve the self-management and transitional care needs for young adults with OI.

Conclusions The results of this study highlight the key role that expert nurses play in the care of patients with DFS. Expert nurses considered that amputation leaves the individual physically and psychologically vulnerable, especially upon discharge from hospital. It is therefore essential to provide these patients with comprehensive and multidisciplinary care that includes emotional support.

Conclusion Although emergency department naloxone distribution programs are feasible in the acute care setting, it was critical for clinical nurse specialists to enlist an interdisciplinary team and engage executive leadership to ensure program success. For others considering such a program, early consideration should be given to determining financial support and evaluating the compliance and regulatory aspects of dispensing medications from emergency settings.
