    Aloha,

    I enjoyed Dr. Nigg's new research on tissue vibrations and performance optimization.

    I have a few questions please.


    By placing a composite leaf spring in the closed kinetic chain will this make any significant difference in vibration dampening?

    Will it assist the muscles in their function of tissue vibration dampening thereby reducing energy demands?

    Will the advanced composite material Kevlar, which has significant vibration dampening material properties have any affect as well?

    If we have developed shoes that have performance optimization and efficiency? How would this change the explanation of the results?

    "One explanation for this result could be a self-optimization mechanism that most biological systems have inherently. This idea suggests that a runner automatically adapts to a change in running condition or strike pattern to maintain optimal running performance and efficiency. If we reflect upon this idea then we must consider that performance optimization and efficiency will presumably prevail over changes introduced throughshod or unshod running."

    Mahalo,

    Practical implications
    •There is no conclusive advantage of barefoot or shod running withrespect to tissue vibration properties.
    •Tissue vibration damping is primarily governed by the preferred running style of an individual.
    •The discussion about shod and barefoot running should considera runners individual preference more strongly.
