The Biomechanics of Occupations and Sports Lab members, supervised by Dr. Julie Côté, KPE, recently presented their Ph.D. research at international conferences! Each member who attended was awarded a Canadian Musculoskeletal Rehab Research Network 2022 Trainee Travel Award. Matthew Slopecki was also awarded a Canadian Society of Biomechanics Travel Award.

Erika Renda, Ph.D. Candidate
Presented her poster titled “The Effects of Handedness on Muscle Activation During a Repetitive Overhead Fatiguing Task” at the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology Conference in Quebec City from June 22 - 25, 2022.
 
Matthew Slopecki, Ph.D. Candidate
Presented his poster titled “Old Males Show Reduced Motor Flexibility During a Seated, Fatiguing, Repetitive Reaching Task” at the North American Congress on Biomechanics in Ottawa from August 21 – 25, 2022.
 
Yiyang Chen, Ph.D. Candidate
Presented her poster titled “Sex-Specific Fatigue Detection during a Repetitive Pointing Task using Continuous Wavelet Transforms” at the North American Congress on Biomechanics in Ottawa from August 21 – 25, 2022. Yiyang also presented an oral presentation titled “Sex-Specific Effects of Fatigue on Muscle Synergies in a Repetitive Pointing Task” at the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology Conference in Quebec City from June 22 -25, 2022.
   
Chen Yang, Ph.D. Graduate and Alumnus of BOS lab
Presented his Ph.D. work in poster format titled “Sex-specific Fatigue Effects on Principal Components and Complete Kinematic Time Series in a Repetitive Pointing Task” at the North American Congress on Biomechanics in Ottawa from August 21 – 25, 2022.

Dr. Julie Côté was also invited to speak at the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology Conference in Quebec City from June 22 -25, 2022. She presented her work titled “Impacts of Fatigue, Sex and Age on Control of Upper Limb Repetitive tasks: the Useful and the Harmful”.
