May 24th Dr. Ryan Crotin now serves as a Research Associate and Adjunct Thesis Advisor for the Department of Kinesiology’s master’s concentration in Sports Performance. To read more about Dr. Crotin Please click here . Dr. Crotin co-authored a study with Dr. Dan Ramsey titled “Stride length impacts sagittal knee biomechanics in flat ground baseball pitching.” Interested individuals can use the link below to hear the presentation given by Dr. Ramsey at the 21st Biennial Meeting for the Canadian Society for Biomechanics. Presentation July 9th 2020, Department of Kinesiology at Louisiana Tech University presented 2 posters at NSCA national conference 2020.Please click on following link for more information. Department of Kinesiology began a Baseball research study focusing on different physiological and anthropometric characteristics of Division I college baseball players.

"ShowMotion" is an equipment which track scapular motion in all three plane during shoulder movement. Learn More Dr. Blazo has recently been named the 'Reviewer of the Year’ for the journal Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly. Dr. Mu Qiao has been recognized as outstanding contributions to review the manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Theoretical Biology. The Journal of Theoretical Biology is a peer-reviewed high impact journal covering theoretical, mathematical, computational and statistical aspects of biology. HPL has recently added COSMED K5 unit (Portatable Metabolic device). K5 is one of the most advanced technology available in market to measure metabolic parameters.Click Here for details
