  • Changes in Urine Specific Gravity and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis Between Normal-Hydrated and Euhydrated States 

    Klatt, Travis D.; Knight, Kelsey L.; Hogan, Zach L.; Leon, Elena E.; Meyer, Katy A. (2009-06-24)
    BACKGROUND: Urine specific gravity (USG) is a simple way to estimate the hydration of an individual that is directly proportional to urine osmolality. Bioelectrical impedance (BIA) is a way to measure % fat, % water, and ...
  • Effects of Performing a Task on Gait Parameter 

    Leon, Elena E.; Knight, Kelsey L.; Barkley, Rachel M.; Reuter, Grant D. (2010-05-10)
    Background: When performing a second task, normal gait parameters are altered as compared to normal walking. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of performing a task on gait parameters including ...
  • Gender Influences on Gait When Walking Normally Versus Carrying Weight 

    Homan, Adrea L.; Smith, Chelsea L.; Heffernen, Emily E.; Leon, Elena E. (2010-04-28)
    Anatomically, males and females have many differences. Females tend to have a wider pelvis than males. Traditionally, males have longer limbs as well as larger muscle mass. Based on these facts, we hypothesized that females ...
  • Gender-Based Comparison of Walking Speed and Simultaneous Mental Math Performance 

    Frederick, Vladislav C.; Raether, Ryan J.; Knorpp, Matt T.; Leon, Elena E. (2010-05-10)
    Walking is so automatic to us that we often multitask while walking (for instance, by talking to others, carrying things, or eating/drinking). However, it might be expected that multitasking would cause gait to change as ...
