As we continue to work with The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) we are happy to announce our latest webinar of the series: Investigating and Preventing Sport-Related Ankle Sprain Injury.
Date: Wednesday 26th April 2017
Time: 3 pm BST
Presenter: Dr Daniel Fong, PhD, FISBS, FHKASMSS
Ankle sprain is common in sports and therefore it is worth investigating and preventing. The webinar will first cover a series of biomechanics studies on ankle inversion sprain mechanism. This involved a forensic motion analysis on video footages of real injury incidents. The second part will present a wearable anti-sprain system to prevent the injury by monitoring the injury hazard by motion sensors and preventing it by stimulating shank muscles for very quick corrective motion. Current attempts to modify the device for prehabilitation will also be presented. Continue reading
