Health promotion with focus on physical activity and injury prevention

Jonatan Jungmalm

The aim is to investigate risk factors leading to overuse injuries in recreational runners prospectively. Both men and women, 18-55 years old has been recruited for the study from Gothenburg Half marathon.

Impact and importance of sense-making in student-centered movement learning

Mats Rönnqvist

The project's topic is movement learning and student sense-making of this process. How do students make sense of their movement capacities and skills, which qualities a physical activity demands of the practitioner, and what would be required of the student/learner to develop the corporeal knowledge connected to the activity? The aim of this project is to bring focus to the relationship between student sense-making of movements, and their potential to learn new movements, in order to strive towards a student-centered, inclusive educational practice in Physical education and Health, to promote lifelong learning and a physically active lifestyle.

Injury-Free Children and Adolescents: Towards Best Practice in Swedish Sport (FIT project)

Solveig E.S. Hausken

An interdisciplinary research project that will produce evidence-based recommendations on how injuries in Swedish youth football can be prevented. The project will integrate biomechanical and sociocultural perspectives to produce evidence based multifaceted injury cause and prevention knowledge. Participants will be children and adolescents aged 10 to 18 years recruited from the most popular, but also one of the most injury prone sport in Sweden: football.

Injury prevention among Elite Track and Field Athletes

Andreas Lundberg Zachrisson

A prospective injury prevention project in collaboration with Gothenburg Track and Field Federation (Göteborgs Friidrottsförbund). Andreas monitors elite track and field athletes I Gothenburg over a period of four years in order to measure injury frequency and, based upon his measurements, develops injury prevention methods in order to keep the athletes injury-free. The project was launched in autumn 2016.

Match analysis in Ice Hockey – what affects the performance

Erik Lignell

The purpose of the project is to increase the knowledge about what is going on during an ice hockey game. The project is a cooperation with Frölunda Ice Hockey Club, where the goal is enhance the knowledge of ice hockey game demands from a physiological, tactical and technical perspective.

Movement capability beyond the sports activity

Heléne Bergentoft

The dissertation aims at studying movement capability in the school subject physical education and health. It is a practical research, focusing teacher praxis. The meaning of being able to move is in the thesis's focus. In order to understand what is experienced in a movement, we go beyond the actual activity to identify and specify what characterizes the movement. The interventions are implemented by the use of the model learning study. The theory of variation forms the theoretical framework. The result contributes to specific knowledge about how teaching in the subject physical education and health can be organized and implemented to develop students' movement capabilities.

Opportunities and challenges for a shift towards more plant based diets in public and private meals considering climate impact, health aspects and acceptance

Mari Wollmar

The aim of the project is to develop knowledge and methodology to promote sustainable meat consumption in children and adults, including palatability, environmental and nutritional perspectives, increased awareness and knowledge of those who produce meals and those who consume them.
