Careful consideration should be given when applying DRI to loading environments / conditions different than it was originally developed for and the relationship to injury potential
should not be accepted as universally applicable.
We found no support for the authors' conclusions regarding TMJ injury potential
in the methods or results of this study.
This ASTM-recommended tool is used routinely by Underwriter Laboratories to evaluate consumer products for injury potential
. In the inspection of playgrounds, the tool is used to check small openings that may provide access to potential pinch, crush, and shear points.
Ergonomics checklists organize the procedure of assessing workplace ergonomics and pinpoint situations that present injury potential
Areas of patient/resident risk, employee injury potential
and environmental concern have been identified and corrected.
A sound resistance training program also includes training for muscular balance to minimize injury potential
. Muscle balance refers to the ratio of strength, power or endurance of one muscle group in relation to- another.
"The goal is to substantially advance the art of assessing injury potential
with computers," said Bill Wray, the researcher at Los Alamos responsible for the project.
However, if there is a serious injury potential
, investigation is called for.
For example, in studies involving high contact, high injury-potential sports, the SIP indices of pain coping significant differentiated between gender, injury potential
, type of sport athlete, and type of sport (Encarnacion, Meyers, Ryan, & Pease, 2000; Meyers, Bourgeois, & LeUnes, 2001a: Meyers, Bourgeois, & LeUnes, 2001b).
"A common misconception is that no vehicle damage equals no injury potential
. This is not necessarily the case."
Strength training also plays a major role in enhancing the durability of connective tissue (ligaments and tendons), minimizing the injury potential
of your athlete.
A mechanical engineering study of the eye injury potential
of different kinds of baseballs showed that softer balls are no more likely than harder ones to cause eye injuries, reported Dr.
