Lecture: Technologies and Methods of Sport Performance Assessment

Giuseppe Annino


Aim of the course is to learn the basic aspect of the technical features of instrumental devices used on sport performance assessment and the relative methods used to monitoring the training and the assessment of neuromuscular, biomechanical and metabolic characteristics of athletes.

In addition, the course will deal with issues related to the evaluation of performance models and the factors limiting the performance of the different sports disciplines

 Main Topics Covered:

  • Neuromechanical Basis of Human Movement
  • Neuromuscular Adaptations to the sport performance
  • Metabolic demands of different sport performance
  • Scientific assumptions of sport performance assessment
  • Isometric, isokinetic and isoinertial dynamometry
  • Dynamometry synchronised with the surface Electromigraphy
  • Assessment of internal load
  • Advanced technologies in Sport performance assessment
