Sports Performance

Athletes and teams are always looking for that edge that is going to catapult them over the competition. Due to this, sports performance encompasses many different areas of research and innovation. Some of the main areas of research are the biomechanics involved in sport, gender-based performance training and data, injury prevention and rehab, different physiological aspects of sport and performance, and wearable technology. While this is an extensive list, this by no means encompasses all of the different sports performance-based research endeavors that are currently in the works.
