Medical study about rollerblading traumatology

Preventing trauma in rollerblading: physiotherapist point of view

After years of skating and experiencing injuries, Benedict Maudot searched online and realized that no one has ever studied traumatology in aggressive skating. Therefore he decided to look into this as his final report for his physiotherapist degree.

He started working on his study in september 2013 (forums) and his work was recently released (pdf, french language).

Etude medicale sur la traumatologie du roller agressif

“Apres plusieurs annees de roller agressif, plusieurs blessures, et quelques recherches sur internet, il s’avere que personne ne s’est jamais interesse à la traumatologie du roller agressif. Il n’existe pas d’etude, de recherche, ni d’article sur le sujet! Actuellement en derniere annee d’ecole de Kinesitherapeuthe, j’ai decide de faire mon memoire de fin d’etude sur notre sport!” – Benedict Maudot.

L’etude a debutee en septembre 2013 (forums) et le document final est a present disponible en ligne (pdf).

“Dans ce memoire j’ai presente tous les resultats que j’avais obtenu, mais aussi des conseils sur l’echauffement, la preparation physique, des rappels sur les delais de cicatrisation apres blessures, …” – BM.

My friend @sic0x had a great idea to go out and soul grind the biggest kink you could find in honor of Bryan Bell. Today I thought I would go back to a rail I have spent countless hours trying on multiple occasions (years and years ago) and was never able to roll away from. Today after about two and half hours and nearly 100 tries I was able to put it down for my fallen friend which is why I got so excited when I landed. He was the first person to think kinked rails like this were possible and is probably the only reason anyone ever started trying them. Thanks for the help today brother. Rest easy.

Brian Bell: Rest in Peace

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Bryan Bell. November 30, 1977- September 1, 2014 (RIP).

Brian Bell: Rest in Peace

We have just received the very sorrowful news that Bryan Bell who had been missing for almost a week, has died in a sudden and tragic way. This was, of course, unexpected and has left his family and friends devastated.

Bryan’s parents, who are serving as missionaries in Belize, were able to come home to be with their family and join them in the search of their son because of the overwhelming and generous giving of family and friends. On the day of their arrival in San Diego they were informed that Bryan’s body had been located in San Diego Bay and that his identity had been confirmed by the San Diego Medical Examiner.

Now the family has the added concern of a proper burial for Bryan. Bryan was the friend of hundreds of people around the world as a result of his career as a professional inline skater. His early videos of the sport captured the spirit and culture of the skating community. Bryan also made many friends through his music and art. He seemed to excel at everything he attempted. But perhaps his best gift was the friendship and unselfish love that he gave to all.

With your help and support we can pay tribute to our good friend, Bryan Bell, and lay him to rest in a respectful and honoring way.
Bryan’s memorial service will be on Thursday, September 11 at 5pm (more infos).

Oli Benet quits Powerslide

In April 2004 I joined Powerslide. 10 years on, I have decided to step down in order to start a brand new project of my own, ROEX, a skate shop and school by the beach of Barcelona. I want to thank Powerslide for an amazing 10 years and I also want to thank all those I met along the way, the riders, skaters, distributors, shops – it’s been an incredible ride! …and now, on to the next adventure!Oli Benet.
