Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery

Per Aagaard mainly focuses on Anatomy, Electromyography, Isometric exercise, Tendon and Internal medicine. His Anatomy research incorporates elements of Eccentric and Biomedical engineering. The study incorporates disciplines such as Hamstring, Physical therapy and Biceps in addition to Electromyography.

His study in Isometric exercise is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soleus muscle and Myosin. His Tendon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Resistance training and Aponeurosis. Per Aagaard interconnects Strength training and Endocrinology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Increased rate of force development and neural drive of human skeletal muscle following resistance training (1094 citations)
  • Thermodynamic and kinetic constraints on reaction rates among minerals and aqueous solutions; I, Theoretical considerations (701 citations)
  • Thermodynamic and kinetic constraints on reaction rates among minerals and aqueous solutions. II. Rate constants, effective surface area, and the hydrolysis of feldspar (507 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Physical therapy, Internal medicine, Isometric exercise and Anatomy. The Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics in areas such as Resistance training and Knee Joint. His work investigates the relationship between Physical therapy and topics such as Muscle contraction that intersect with problems in Eccentric.

His Internal medicine research includes themes of Endocrinology and Cardiology. Per Aagaard studies Isometric exercise, namely Rate of force development. His work on Anatomy deals in particular with Tendon and Biomechanics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (30.00%)
  • Physical therapy (25.16%)
  • Internal medicine (17.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (30.00%)
  • Physical therapy (25.16%)
  • Resistance training (10.97%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Per Aagaard spends much of his time researching Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Physical therapy, Resistance training, Internal medicine and Blood flow. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sprint and Isometric exercise. His Physical therapy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in ACL injury and Randomized controlled trial.

His studies deal with areas such as Endocrinology and Cardiology as well as Internal medicine. His Blood flow study incorporates themes from Myocyte, Muscle hypertrophy and Skeletal muscle. His Muscle strength research incorporates themes from Muscle activation and Muscle contraction.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Physiological and methodological aspects of rate of force development assessment in human skeletal muscle. (51 citations)
  • Effects of the Nordic Hamstring exercise on sprint capacity in male football players: a randomized controlled trial. (40 citations)
  • The Copenhagen Sarcopenia Study: lean mass, strength, power, and physical function in a Danish cohort aged 20-93 years. (34 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery

Per Aagaard focuses on Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Internal medicine, Physical therapy, Resistance training and Blood flow. Many of his studies on Physical medicine and rehabilitation involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Rate of force development. Per Aagaard combines subjects such as Endocrinology, Electromyography and Cardiology with his study of Internal medicine.

As a part of the same scientific study, Per Aagaard usually deals with the Physical therapy, concentrating on ACL injury and frequently concerns with Cohort study and Prospective cohort study. His Resistance training study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Control period, Randomized controlled trial, Muscle weakness and Time course. His work deals with themes such as Muscle contraction, Isometric exercise and Skeletal muscle, which intersect with Muscle strength.
