(There are also military applications, but let’s stick to the fun stuff.) A few months ago, mechanical engineer Tadd Truscott and collagues wrote a quick study on […]

Predictors of 3-D Breast Kinematics during Bare-Breasted Running

A six-person research team has just released its findings about the predictors of three-dimensional breast kinematics during bare-breasted running. Details are in their singular study: “Predictors of Three-Dimensional Breast Kinematics during Bare-Breasted Running“, Louise Ellen Wood, Jennifer White, Alexandra Milligan, Bessie Ayres, Wendy Hedger, and Joanna Scurr [pictured here], Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, vol. 44, […]
