  • Title
    An investigation of computer-related musculoskeletal discomfort in university staff during COVID-19
    Summary
    The use of computers and the associated risks of musculoskeletal disorders have been widely researched in the workforce (Colombini and Occhipinti 2006; Oha, et al. 2014; Wærsted et al. 2010). However, there is a limited number of studies on university staff use of computers and the association between computer use and musculoskeletal discomfort and, in particular during COVID-19 restrictions. Main Aim:To determine the prevalence of computer-related musculoskeletal discomfort in university staff during COVID-19.

  • Title
    Prevalence and Experiences of Urinary Incontinence/ Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction in Elite Female Athletes
    Summary
    Urinary incontinence (UI), defined as a 'complaint of involuntary loss of urine', is a common complaint that occurs in women of all ages. The most common forms of UI include Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and Urgency urinary incontinence (UUI). The International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) and the International Continence Society (ICS) define SUI as the 'complaint of involuntary loss of urine on effort or physical exertion (e.g., sporting activities), or on sneezing or coughing' and UUI as 'complaint of involuntary loss of urine associated with urgency' (Haylen et al., 2010). Many women find it embarrassing to discuss pelvic floor and continence problems with others and incontinence has been shown to negatively affect quality of life (Amaral et al., 2015). Research suggests that there is an increased prevalence of UI amongst elite athletes, with athletes involved in high impact sports reporting a higher prevalence. A recent systematic review reported the prevalence of UI as ranging from 42.22% to 61.19% in high impact female sports players, and prevalence in female hockey players, which was classified as a moderate impact sport, was 31.58% (de Mattos Lourenco et al., 2018). There is no research to date investigating the prevalence of UI among female Irish athletes including female Gaelic games athletes such as Camogie or Ladies Gaelic Football players. In addition, there appears to be a paucity of qualitative research into female athletes' experiences of UI during sports. This study aims to identify the prevalence, extent and severity of urinary incontinence (UI) among female Irish athletes and the impact, if any, on their activity levels and quality of life (QOL).
