    "description": "<p>Neck braces are designed to prevent traumatic injuries of the cervical spine by transferring the forces occurring at the head and&nbsp;spine to adjacent body structures, mainly the torso. Gorasso and Petrone (2013) showed that neck braces can influence the&nbsp;muscular activity of the neck during motocross riding, but their results only refer to one analysed neck brace system. Based on&nbsp;their results, this work analyses the effect of different neck brace designs on muscular activity of the neck during specific events&nbsp;in motocross riding. During on-track-measurements the muscular activity of m. sternocleidomastoideus and the upper part of m.&nbsp;trapezius were recorded in three different conditions: driving without neck brace (C1); driving with neck brace system A (C2);&nbsp;driving with neck brace system B (C2). For all the conditions mentioned the following riding events were examined: (a) turn, (b)&nbsp;bumps and (c) jump. Based on the results, it can be concluded that wearing a neck brace during motocross riding has various&nbsp;effects on the muscular activity of the neck. Depending on the neck brace design, the effects can be an increased or a decreased&nbsp;activity of the involved muscles and a change in the distribution of muscular activity in the neck. According to the recent results&nbsp;and with additional research, an improved neck brace system with optimized design can be developed, which not only serves&nbsp;protective purposes, but also can help to relieve the riders neck muscles during riding.&nbsp;</p>",
