Functional Movement Assessment Based on Objective Parameters
Fri, March 24, 2017, 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM GMT
There is a big interest in movement analysis for both injury prevention and performance enhancement. This event is exclusive to clinicians working in elite sport who have an interest in objective movement analysis. We have two experts leading the session who will discuss their methodologies from Europe and the USA.
This event is led by Christian Zantop who is head of Return-To-Play, based in Straubing. Together with his team, Christian has screened over 1000 athletes from several teams from Bundesliga, German Handball, as well as professional athletes from other elite teams. He will discuss the importance of biomechanical data for his decision making in combination with functional dynamometry during the process of returning an athlete back to their sport.
Christian Zantop: “With our scientific approach of the Return-To-Play concept, we have developed a battery of multiparametric analyses in order to better determine the time of the return of the athlete. In our exercise laboratory, athletes are carefully analysed, measured and evaluated in situations close to the injury mechanisms. This is the only way of finding out whether a player is really ready or not to return to play”.
Coleman Bessert, formerly head of biomenchanics at EXOS (Athletes performance), will be presenting on the future of biomechanics as part of big data analysis. Having important parts in the development of analysis and data mapping software for world leading companies like Adidas, Coleman‘s expertise is in finding a link between data and presenting it to people in a “digestable“ way.
