Event Description

Full Description:
'The mechanical function of the subtalar joint and tibialis posterior muscle and tendon during walking' is presented by Jayishni Maharaj (HMNS). The foot acts like a spring to store and return energy during walking and running, however, its mechanical role in controlling frontal plane mechanics has received very little attention.

This presentation explores the hypothesis the tibialis posterior tendon is responsible for the majority of energy absorption at the subtalar joint during early stance, predisposing it to high strains and high incidence of injury.

“The role of exercise in reducing cancer progression and improving disease- and treatment-related side effects” is presented by Dr Tina Skinner (HMNS), and describes the exercise oncology research conducted at UQ’s School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences. This research explores the role of exercise for reducing the disease- and treatment-related side effects of cancer, as well as preliminary evidence for its role in reducing the risk of disease recurrence.
