New evidence about the active role muscles play in the foot could have implications for the design of running shoes and the debate on barefoot running, say researchers.
It could also provide insights into rehabilitation, prosthetics, robotics and our understanding of the evolution of bipedalism in humans, says Dr Glen Lichtwark, an exercise scientist at the University of Queensland.
He and colleagues publish their findings today in the...
Northern Ireland Update
Hey hey, so figured I'd better check in here as I haven't been on here in a while. Things have been crazy busy and I've plenty to update you guys on.

São Bento – de la confiance en soi
Samedi était le 21km de São Bento, événement bucolique et festif à caractère non-compétitif. Pas de dossard, pas de médaille, pas de sponsor, pas de chronomètre. La même récompense pour les premiers comme pour les derniers : 2 litres d’huile d’olive (bio) et un grand repas champêtre.
L’occasion de laisser au placard son cardio, sa montre, ses chaussures, son ego, ses doutes, ses peurs, l’occasion de retrouver les collègues de la...
