Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

During the last two-decades significant efforts have been made to develop new forming-tools. Innovation in tool-structure designs has been a driving force to the development. Based on a review on tool-designs reported recently, innovative tool-structures/systems are classified, strategies and approaches for tool-design innovation are discussed, which is followed by introducing a new forming-tool concept. Finally, some issues on further development are outlined.
