The RMCSR has joined forces with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), and more than 1,000 other organizations and sports medicine practices from around the country to promote the STOP Sports Injuries injuries program.
The Q Lab is the RMCSR's mobile biomechanics laboratory that measures an athlete's movement performance with state-of-the-art wearable sensors in a competitive context. Sport science research is now possible anywhere an athlete trains or competes.
Members of the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA), Microsoft and the RMCSR performed collaborative research in Aspen, CO to enhance the instruction and education programs of the PSIA. The video is a visualization of movement data captured from wearable sensors (Xsens) during short radius turns performed on slalom skis.
Dr. Rachel Frank, an orthopaedic surgeon at CU Sports Medicine, recently provided funding to increase the number of mobile testing stations for the injury risk reduction study currently underway with the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club. The RMCSR will now have the ability to collect the movement performance of an entire soccer team with wearable sensors and high-speed video in under one hour.
Since 2010, the Alliance has worked to raise awareness, advance legislation and improve medical care for young athletes across the country. Spear headed by the National Athletic Training Associiattion (NATA), the Alliance includes more than 230 organizations that have joined together to reduce injuries and prevent catastrophic events in youth sports.
