Physical Education PhD student wins two outstanding paper awards

體育學系博士生奪兩優秀論文獎

Zhao Yanan, PhD student of the Department of Physical Education, recently won outstanding paper awards at The 12th Chinese Scholars on Exercise Physiology and Fitness Annual Conference and 2013 Shenyang Forum on Exercise Physiology and Fitness held at Shenyang Sport University and at the Postgraduate Academic Forum held at Shenzhen University.

Yanan gave an oral presentation of the paper “The Use of the Cantonese Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) Scale in Older People” at the Shenyang Sport University forum. The paper, which she co-authored with Professor Chung Pak-kwong of the Department of Physical Education and others, mainly studied a subjective measurement of exercise intensity in the older population. Research results indicated that the Cantonese rating of perceived exertion scale was applicable in guiding exercise intensity among older adults in Hong Kong.

In addition, she presented the paper “Exercise regulation during cycle ergometry using Cantonese version of the CERT and Borg’s RPE” at the Shenzhen University forum. Co-authored with Professor Chung Pak-kwong and others, the paper studied the efficacy of Children’s Efforts Rating Table and Rating of Perceived Exertion scale in regulating exercise intensity in young adolescents.

Yanan’s research focuses on exercise that improves older adults’ ability to balance and prevents them from falling. She was very happy to receive the awards saying that they signified recognition of her work.

體育學系博士生趙亞楠最近於瀋陽體育學院舉行的「第十二屆華人運動生理與體適能學者學會年會暨二零一三瀋陽運動生理與體適能高層論壇」和於深圳大學舉行的「荔研論壇─粵港澳三地校際研究生學術論壇」上分別獲頒優秀論文獎。

趙同學在瀋陽體育學院的論壇上為「身體自覺疲勞量表(中文版)在老年人群眾的應用」論文作口頭報告。該論文是她與體育學系鍾伯光教授等人合著,主要研究以主觀方式去量度老年人的運動強度。研究結果顯示身體自覺疲勞量表(中文版)適合作為香港老年人的運動強度指標。

此外,她在深圳大學論壇上發表的論文「Exercise regulation during cycle ergometry using Cantonese version of the CERT and Borg’s RPE」亦是與鍾伯光教授等人合著,主要研究兒童用力程度評價量表和身體自覺疲勞量表對監控青少年人運動強度的成效。

趙同學專注研究改善老年人平衡力及預防他們跌倒的運動。她很高興獲頒獎項,認為是對她工作的認同。
