Every individual has their own unique movement signature which is utilised to complete any given task. These distinct movement characteristics are derived from a range of variables such as our age, anthropometry, strength, muscular co-ordination, genetics etc. Over time these distinctive movements are altered and evolve due to our changing physical state, the constraints of the environment we move within and the equipment we connect with. 

Drawing from Paul’s applied experience and his research into movement science, sports technology and the interaction between the two, the talk will reflect upon the challenges faced when applying such knowledge and technology within high performance sport and the real-world.

The talk will also explore the potential performance improvements that could be gained with new ways of thinking and advances in technology.   

Professor Paul Worsfold lectures in Sports Biomechanics and Performance Analysis at the University of Chester and is also Head of Biomechanics at the English Institute of Sport who provide sport science and medicine support to Team GB Olympic Athletes. 

 

Paul Worsfold is a Professor of Sport and Exercise Sciences at the University of Chester.
