Protruding impact peak is one of the features of vertical ground reaction force (GRF) that is related to injury risk while running. The present research is dedicated to predicting GRF impact peak appearance by setting a binary classification problem. Kinematic data, namely a number of raw signals in the sagittal plane, collected by the Vicon motion capture system (Oxford Metrics Group, UK) were employed as predictors. Therefore, the input data for the predictive model are presented as a multi-channel time series. Deep learning techniques, namely five convolutional neural network (CNN) models were applied to the binary classification analysis, based on a Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) classifier, support vector machine (SVM), logistic regression, k-nearest neighbors (kNN), and random forest algorithms. SVM, logistic regression, and random forest classifiers demonstrated performances that do not statistically significantly differ. The best classification accuracy achieved is 81.09% ± 2.58%. Due to good performance of the models, this study serves as groundwork for further application of deep learning approaches to predicting kinetic information based on this kind of input data. ...

Prediction of active peak force using a multilayer perceptron Niemelä, Marko; Kulmala, Juha-Pekka; Kauppi, Jukka-Pekka; Kosonen, Jukka; Äyrämö, Sami (Springer London, 2017)Both kinematic parameters and ground reaction forces (GRFs) are necessary for understanding the biomechanics of running. Kinematic information of a runner is typically measured by a motion capture system whereas GRF during ...

Running in highly cushioned shoes increases leg stiffness and amplifies impact loading Kulmala, Juha-Pekka; Kosonen, Jukka; Nurminen, Jussi; Avela, Janne (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)Running shoe cushioning has become a standard method for managing impact loading and consequent injuries due to running. However, despite decades of shoe technology developments and the fact that shoes have become ...
Self-selected running gait modifications reduce acute impact loading, awkwardness, and effort Xia, Haisheng; Huang, Yangjian; Chen, Gang; Cheng, Sulin; Cheung, Roy T. H.; Shull, Peter B. (Routledge, 2021)Impact loading has been associated with running-related injuries, and gait retraining has been suggested as a means of reducing impact loading and lowering the risk of injury. However, gait retraining can lead to increased ...
Ground reaction forces, neuromuscular and metabolic responses to combined strength and endurance loading in recreational endurance athletes Sorvisto, Juha (2015)Among recreational and elite endurance athletes strength and endurance loadings are often performed concurrently to improve neuromuscular capacity in order to enhance running economy and maximal running velocity (i.e. ...
