Can you jog with a friend who lives in London? Is it possible to play a fair game of table tennis with 3 people? How can you box with people on the other side of the world? Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller has explored “Sports over a Distance” as part of his research on “Exertion Games” – these are games that require physical effort from their players – marrying human-computer interaction, computer game...
Six generations of RPC systems can be distinguished including Federated Method Invocation presented in this paper. Some of them—CORBA, Java RMI, and Web/OGSA services—support distributed objects. However, creating object wrappers implementing remote interfaces doesn’t have a great deal to do with object-oriented distributed programming. Distributed objects developed that way are usually ill-str...
BIGEMINY or coupling of beats may involve the atria alone, the ventricles, or both. There are many causes for coupling, the commonest and most important being extrasystoles.1 In extrasystolic bigeminy, there is a premature contraction after each normal beat. The premature beat may orig-immate from the sinoatrial node, the atrium, the atrioventricular node, the atrioventricular bundle, or the ve...
Because sports injuries in men form most of the available statistics, the reportage of injuries in female athletes is sparse. We describe exertion injuries and disorders in 281 women athletes, all of which hampered athletic training or performances. Sixty per cent of the injuries occurred to girls ages between 12-19 years, and about forty-eight per cent were track and field athletes. The most c...
Epidemiological data suggest that endurance athletes are at increased risk for upper respiratory tract infection during periods of heavy training and the 1- to 2-wk period following race events. There is growing evidence that, for several hours subsequent to heavy exertion, several components of both the innate (e.g., natural killer cell activity and neutrophil oxidative burst activity) and ada...
It is known that exertion can aggravate migraine headache. However, the relationship between exertion and migraine aura is unknown.
To study the relationship between exertion and migraine aura.

A 67-year-old man presented with recurrent attacks of exertion-induced hemiplegic migraine. Since the hemiparetic ...
A series of 147 cases of exertion injuries in less than or equal to 15 years old athletes is presented. All injuries occurred during training or athletic performances without trauma and caused symptoms that prevented athletic exercises. There were 67 girls (46%) and 80 boys (54%) in the material. About 90% of them had been training for more than one year before the onset of the symptoms; 65% we...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
Functional walk tests such as the 6- and 12-Minute Walk Test (ie, 6MWT and 12MWT, respectively) are submaximal measures used to determine functional capacity in individuals with compromised ability. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between these walk tests and measures of exertion (perceived and myocardial), in addition to impairment in individu...
Research suggests that one physiological effect of concussion is a disruption in regulation of autonomic nervous system control that affects the balance between parasympathetic and sympathetic output. While changes in heart rate after concussion have been observed, the nature of the heart rate change during progressive exercise has not been well evaluated in acutely symptomatic patien...

The design of exertion games (i.e., digital games that require physical effort from players) is a difficult intertwined challenge of combining digital games and physical effort. To aid designers in facing this challenge, we describe our experiences of designing exertion games. We outline personal reflections on our design processes and articulate analyses of players' experiences. These reflecti...
