Bibliographic information


“The aim is to highlight key scientific research articles that best represent the field of research, development, and application of advanced technologies to better understand and evaluate sport performance in closed-lab as well as real-world settings. The book is appropriate for academic research professionals who study sport performance and have a keen interest in how new and advancing technologies can be used to objectively assess and/or predict athlete performance in sport-specific environmental settings.” (Erik H. Van Iterson, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2015)
