from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Few aspects of sports are as wrapped in myth as the warm-up. Most of us dutifully warm up in some way before we work out or compete, but according to a new study, "little is known about how an athlete should warm up."

Meniscus-Healing Stem Cell Bandage Approved for Clinical Trials
from Gizmag    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Recently, a new type of stem cell-seeded bandage, developed at the University of Bristol, has been approved for a clinical trial on meniscal tears. It may greatly reduce the need for menisectomies.
