On the epidemiology of sports injuries in Switzerland


de Loës, Marianne; Marti, Bernard (1992). On the epidemiology of sports injuries in Switzerland. Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Sportmedizin, 40(3):123-129.

Abstract

A review of the current literature and of insurance data sources on sports injuries in Switzerland during the latest decade is presented. Epidemiological denominator data to determine the population-at-risk and the exposure time are scarce and it is therefore recommended that both the quantity and the quality of Swiss research in this field will be enhanced. It is also proposed that at least one academic institution in Switzerland would assemble systematically all available data of standard format on sports and recreational injuries to ensure a continuous analysis of these data.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. 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.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
