FUTURE TRENDS IN SPORTS BIOMECHANICS - REDUCING INJURY RISK OR IMPROVING PERFORMANCE?
Keywords: cricket injury, feedback, future trends, sports performance, variability
AbstractIn this paper, I reflect on some of the applied sports biomechanics projects in which I have been involved over the last 30 years, focusing on how injury risk can be reduced through biomechanical research and interventions, how sports biomechanists can help to improve sports performance, and how we can best feedback information to achieve performance improvements or reduce the risk of injury. Finally, I consider some of the changes that have occurred in that period and speculate on some possible future trends.
