Lower Quarter Disorders – Evaluation and Interventions On and Off the bike

Masterclass

Course Description
From the Pelvis to the foot and all the knee dysfunction in between.  Come learn on and off bike evaluation and intervention strategies.  These include evaluation of the biomechanics of the LE on and off the bike, exercises for correction of underlying drivers, and on bike accommodations to decrease stress to dysfunctional areas.

Who is this class for?
All medical and ancillary clinicians who work with cyclists including: Physiotherapists, Personal Trainers, Osteopaths, Massage Therapists, Bike fitters, Physicians, Coaches

Objectives

  • Identify and understand efficient and aberrant biomechanics of the Lower Quarter cycling
  • Specific bike fit ‘solutions’ / accommodations for some common lower extremity complaints
  • Off-bike interventions, including – Hands-on and Exercise strategies for improved mobility
  • Off-bike interventions including – Exercise strategies for strength and coordination
  • The difference between between an accommodated fit and an optimal position fit and how to find the balance between the two
  • Understand how to integrate your findings from the physical and on-bike cycling evaluations into actionable bike fit and treatment interventions

SportTechMatch

SportTechMatch matchmaking event

During the conference a matchmaking event will be organised by the Enterprise Europe Network. Companies, researchers and technologists will be offered a chance to meet potential foreign partners active in the field of cycling and other sports technologies. In pre-arranged face-to-face meetings they will have a chance to establish profitable new cooperation opportunities in business, technology transfer and research & development. Participants will have the opportunity to publish cooperation profiles on this website and to send and receive cooperation requests. On the basis of accepted requests b2b meetings will be scheduled which will take place during the conference.

Company profile
It is important to create a strong profile as this will be your advertisement to attract potential partners. As the profiles will be visible before and even after the event the SportTechMatch website will serve as a marketplace.

Bi-lateral Power Measurement: What it means and how to use it

Bi-lateral Power Measurement: What it means and how to use it.

-Dual sided power meters have been able to measure both left and right power independently for some time now, but little has been said about this data.  Hunter Allen, Co-Author of “Training and Racing with a Power Meter” , will explain what “Left and Right” power means, along with the commonly used metrics. He will teach about “Gross Power Released” and “Gross Power Absorbed”, how the ANT+ metrics can be misleading in your data analysis, along with giving you a simple testing protocol to use with riders to determine possible asymmetries.

Course desription
Jeroen Swart is a sports physician and exercise scientist and heads the cycling biomechanics research group at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. His focus on accurate and objective assessment of bike fitting is incorporated into this masterclass. The class will cover the use of valid and evidence based tools available to the modern bike fitter and integration of these tools into a cohesive system to analyse and optimise bike fit in everyday practice
