Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the problem of core-related injuries in football athletes and propose a prototype for a lower body football girdle. The study is based on Labat and Sokolowski's (1999) systematic design problem-solving, by way of a biomechanical and physiological approach. Finding showed that creating neurological feedback increases core engagement when wearing the prototype. Future research should further study these effects.
