OVERVIEW

The main aim  of the course in Technic Analysis in Sportsis to give the students the basis to design and implement qualitative and quantitative evaluations of the motor performance, with the final goal of improving the sport performance. The approach will be that typical of the scientific methods.

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course the student should know:

  • Movement analysis, history, field of application, scientific methods. A global approach to study, describe and analyze the human moment;
  • How to evaluate the features of the motion by means of the on-line observation or video and images;
  • Scientific research methods in sport;
  • How to design a protocol to evaluate motor abilities with particular emphasis on the theory, methodology, techniques and instrumentations used during classes and laboratories;
  • Digital technologies, software to acquire and analyze movement kinematics in laboratory and during execution in ecological conditions;
  • How to search and read scientific papers; knowing the structure of a scientific paper and being able to write an example of scientific paper starting from the data collected in lab.

Teaching methods

Classes (50%) and laboratories (50%).

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Classes: scientific methodologies applied in sport field; basis of statistical methodologies; how to read the scientific sport literature; technologies to capture and analyze movement kinematics; how to evaluate movement from a qualitative and quantitative point of view; which kind of movement, motion environment, how to provide feedback by means of images and video; knowing proper movement dynamics.

Laboratories: use of biomedical technologies  such as infrared motion capture, electromyography, platform for postural analysis, accelerometers, transcranial magnetic stimulation, sensor-engineered glove to acquire finger movements, graphic tablet to acquire planar arm’s movements and software for video-analysis.
