Movement Analysis of Sport: from the laboratory to the field
Methods and techniques for movement analysis, developed in clinical settings, were successively adapted and applied in sport contexts. The two main goals, closely linked to each other, are performance improvement and injury prevention/rehabilitation.
These aims involve several aspects, from technique assessment to evaluation of motor capacities, from kinematic analysis to evaluation of the metabolic cost.
Recently, thanks to the diffusion of wearable sensors in the field, this type of biomechanical evaluation has moved from the laboratory to the training and competition settings, allowing a more realistic assessment of sport techniques and of the biomechanical adaptations occurring in athletes.
The aim of the course is to provide an overview of the state of the art and of future perspectives relevant to the biomechanical evaluation of sport technique, highlighting how biomechanics is becoming more and more integrated into evaluations performed by coaches and physical trainers.
