Musculoskeletal injuries in military personnel—Descriptive epidemiology, risk factor identification, and preventionTo provide an overall perspective on musculoskeletal injury (MSI) epidemiology, risk factors, and preventive strategies in military personnel.
International consensus on military research priorities and gaps — Survey results from the 4th International Congress on Soldiers’ Physical PerformanceThe objectives of this study were to identify perceived priorities related to military personnel’s health and physical performance, among attendees at the 4th International Congress on Soldiers’ Physical Performance (ICSPP), and to determine if perceived priorities had changed between the 3rd ICSPP survey held in 2014 and the 4th ICSPP survey held in 2017.
Perspectives on resilience for military readiness and preparedness: Report of an international military physiology roundtableModern warfare operations often occur in volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) environments accompanied by physical exertion, cognitive overload, sleep restriction and caloric deprivation. The increasingly fast-paced nature of these operations requires military personnel to demonstrate readiness and resiliency in the face of stressful environments to maintain optimal cognitive and physical performance necessary for success. Resiliency, the capacity to overcome the negative effects of setbacks and associated stress on performance, is a complex process involving not only an individual’s physiology and psychology, but the influence of factors such as sex, environment, and training.
