Abstract

Some examples are introduced to enhance exercise performance (from a single joint movement to running and jumping). There actually are numerous factors affecting exercise performance in but not limited to biomechanical, physiological, medical, and engineering aspects. In this session, I will focus on muscle mechanics that can be "manipulated" with some devices executable by a practitioner or with the use of artificial apparatuses.
