WEBINAR SERIES – Advancements in Exercise Physiology, Sports Science and Biomechanics
An essential webinar series reviewing various technologies used to study exercise physiology, sports science and biomechanics in human subjects.
Presentations will cover practical considerations for experimental design, data collection and analysis, technical innovations and emerging applications in exercise/sports science.
Partners & Sponsors
Technological advancements have revolutionized the way researchers study physiological function, biomechanics and kinematics in a variety of research settings. Selecting the most appropriate product solution, adopting best-practices for proper calibration and validation of equipment, optimizing experimental design to yield quality data and ultimately acquiring publishable data is of critical importance.
This informative webinar series will provide biomechanists, kinesiologists, sports scientists and exercise physiologists a comprehensive overview of the technologies available for motion capture, gait and balance assessment, cardiopulmonary exercise testing and muscle function. Sessions will highlight innovations in motion capture (Mocap) systems and how they have advanced our understanding of kinematics, motor control, biomechanics, sport performance and gait. Options for cardiopulmonary exercise testing using metabolic carts will be presented as well as best practices for calibrating, acquiring and analyzing data. An overview of various mobile and stationary options for studying muscle function using electromyography (EMG) sensors will also be a focus of our sessions.
