Osteogenic training for women - The HAS-project (Hard And Short)
Via gymnastics and other training activities for adult women it is studied how the bones adapt to intense physical activity, respectively before and after menopause. The aim is to contribute to establishment of research based training recommendations to prevent osteoporosis and bone fractures. The study includes e.g. DXA scanning and evaluation of bone turnover markers.
The Female Athlete Triad
The Female Athlete Triad consists of eating disorders/low energy availability, menstrual disorders and low bone mineral density, and thus the study of the Triad holds substantial perspectives related to our understanding of the interaction between sex hormones and mechanical loading in the regulation of bone turnover. This may have a significant importance in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
Ball games as osteogenic stimulus
In intervention studies including different age groups and sexes it is investigated how ball games (e.g. recreational football) as a training modality can stimulate and maintain bone mineral density and bone strength.
