Abstract

This paper is one of the first to point out that turning has an energetic cost for animal and human movement. The paper presents empirical data obtained from tests on humans following paths including turns of various angles.

Abstract: This paper is one of the first to point out that turning has an energetic cost for animal and human movement. The paper presents empirical data obtained from tests on humans following paths including turns of various angles.
Item Description: This paper is revolutionary and groundbreaking. For the first time, the energy costs of turns in humans and other animals is demonstrated using empirical data and theoretical simulations using computer models. This idea will have far-reaching consequences for athletes and players of team sports in which changes of direction are required. The implications for biomechanics and exercise physiology are immense. The Impact Factor of Ecology Letters is 17.9.
