Workshop places for the Statistics and Anthropometry workshops are now full and registrations have closed!!
There are still a few places left for the Catapult workshop but you need to get in quick! Email Emma at Catapult now to secure one of the final places.
Workshop 1: Statistics for Biomechanics
Monday 2nd July, 10am or 2pm. Workshop A at 10am is repeated as workshop B at 2pm.
Duration: 2 hrs
Max. No. of Participants: 20
The use of appropriate research methods and statistical procedures is required for quality biomechanics research. Often biomechanics researchers ask for advice on how to perform a power analysis to estimate sample size, how to check the normality of data sets, and how to perform reliability and variability assessments. This two hour (repeated) practical workshop will utilise resources developed by Professor Will Hopkins from the sportsci.org website. Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience during the workshop conducted in a computer lab. Examples will include a review of common research designs and the associated statistical procedures, estimation of sample sizes, how to calculate reliability and variability statistics and how to make inferences from the data.
Workshop 2: Catapult Sports
Monday 2nd July, 12 midday
Duration: 2 hrs
Max. No of Participants: TBC
Utilising the combination of GPS and inertial sensors such as accelerometers, Catapult Sports is a leading company in wearable athlete tracking technology. This workshop will demonstrate how the use of such technologies can benefit and enhance the data collection, knowledge and understanding of performance in an applied sport setting.
Workshop 3: Anthropometry for Biomechanics
Friday 6th July, 3.30pm
Duration: 1.5 hrs
Max. No. of Participants: 30
The use of anthropometry to accurately describe participants characteristics, and provide data for biomechanical modelling, and gait assessment marker placement is common in biomechanics service, teaching and research. In the two hour workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience of palpation and marking of anatomical bony landmarks, how to measure stretched stature, and measure limb lengths using relevant International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK) techniques. Palpation of the often hard to locate marker placements on the knee, hip, spine and pelvis will be a focus. The ISAK certified authors will discuss with workshop participants their use of kinanthropometry techniques from their running, cycling, triathlon, rowing, kayaking, tennis, gymnastics, sailing, and lower limb injury screening biomechanics experiences.
