Welcome to Repository@Hull

The Repository@Hull is intended to be an Open Access showcase for the published research output of the university. Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided.

Seventeen Pieces: Displacement, Misplacement, and Seventeen Pieces: Displacement, Misplacement, and Conservation Conservation (2020)
Journal Article
Merali, Y., Mourad, K., & Ghanem, M. (2020). Seventeen Pieces: Displacement, Misplacement, and Seventeen Pieces: Displacement, Misplacement, and Conservation Conservation. New England Journal of Public Policy, 32(2),

This article explores the systemic importance of art in the conservation of images, historical reference, and cultural meaning as displaced victims of humanitarian crises make the transition from the land of their birth to a new country with a differ...

Mapping routine measles vaccination in low- and middle-income countries (2020)
Journal Article
Local Burden of Disease Vaccine Coverage Collaborators, , & Soyiri, I. (2021). Mapping routine measles vaccination in low- and middle-income countries. Nature, 589, 415-419. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41586-020-03043-4

The safe, highly effective measles vaccine has been recommended globally since 1974, yet in 2017 there were more than 17 million cases of measles and 83,400 deaths in children under 5 years old, and more than 99% of both occurred in low- and middle-i...

The effect of foot orthotics on myoelectric fatigue in the vastus lateralis during a simulated skier's squat (2004)
Journal Article
Vanicek, N., Kingman, J., & Hencken, C. (2004). The effect of foot orthotics on myoelectric fatigue in the vastus lateralis during a simulated skier's squat. Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology, 14(6), 693-698. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jelekin.2004.03.007

Fatigue in the legs is a problem experienced by skiers. It has been suggested that optimal orthotics may reduce muscle fatigue for a given movement task by minimising muscle activity (Med. Sci. Sports Exerc. 31 (1999) S421). The aims were to determin... Read More about The effect of foot orthotics on myoelectric fatigue in the vastus lateralis during a simulated skier's squat.

Kinematic adaptations to a novel walking task with a prosthetic simulator (2007)
Journal Article
Vanicek, N., Sanderson, D. J., Chua, R., Kenyon, D., & Inglis, J. T. (2007). Kinematic adaptations to a novel walking task with a prosthetic simulator. Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics, 19(1), 29-35. https://doi.org/10.1097/JPO.0b013e31802d4668

The process of relearning locomotor skills is a complex one for the person with a lower-limb amputation. Tracking individuals from the moment they are fitted with a prosthesis until they become competent walkers is a difficult task to achieve with a...

Lower limb kinematic and kinetic differences between transtibial amputee fallers and non-fallers (2010)
Journal Article
Vanicek, N., Strike, S. C., McNaughton, L., & Polman, R. (2010). Lower limb kinematic and kinetic differences between transtibial amputee fallers and non-fallers. Prosthetics and orthotics international, 34(4), 399-410. https://doi.org/10.3109/03093646.2010.480964

Stair walking relies on concentric contraction of the ankle plantarflexor and knee extensor muscles, which are either absent or weakened in transtibial amputees. As a result the risk of falling is increased in this population. The aim of this study w...
