Unfälle beim Deltasegeln


Metzker, S; Biener, Kurt (1991). Unfälle beim Deltasegeln. Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Sportmedizin, 39(2):83-86.

Abstract

We interviewed a group of 259 deltasailors about their injuries which befell them in Switzerland during their sports activity. They reported on 257 incidents, 8% of which were contusions and 24% resulted in fractures. 70% of all injuries affected the arms or legs, whereas 30% were located on the head or trunk. An accident occurred far more often during the landing phase (72%) than at take-off (28%). The mean hospital stay was noticeably longer for injured women (15 days) than for men (8 days).

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
