MAIN TOPICS

The Athlete Monitoring concept is becoming more widely used and refined in pro football. Instead of screening whole team once in preseason, regular athlete monitoring can provide insights on player’s current status and highlight meaningful change. Learn more about strategies implemented by elite clubs and organizations and how innovative technology helps teams to improve training efficiency, modify periodization, maximize athlete performance, avoid overtraining and reduce the risk of injury, and to individualise regeneration and recovery and enhance rehabilitation processes.

Hear about the latest analytical methods used by eliteteams. Discover different strategies and technologies used to analyze on-field team & individual player performance. Learn how applications of data and match analytics are used to gain intelligence on effective coaching, smart decision making and performance management. Acibadem Sports in partnership with Prozone, a pioneer in football analytics, offers you a golden opportunity to listen and share knowledge on match & performance analysis globally.

Injury is a problem which not only results in a missed training day or a game; it can have a major impact on a team’s success, a clubs income and on a player’s career as well as that of the medical staffs. Despite a variety of prevention strategies being applied by elite teams, musculoskeletal injuries are still a big deal. Medical and sports science professionals will share their knowledge, experience and observations and provide you with unique and valuable insights on prehab methodologies and discuss how sports science & analytics is used to enhance these primary and secondary prevention strategies.

 

You have done well taking a player through clear diagnosis, effective treatment and systematic rehabilitation. The player, the coaching staff, the medical department and the board are delighted. Yet, in their first match, disaster strikes! They suffer another injury .. What went wrong? Was the return to play criterion correct? Did you miss something? Could you have done something to prevent this? As prior injury is the #1 risk factor for injury, decision on Return to Play is as important as injury management. Hear how elite teams manage RTP processes with football science and technology, and how they use player tracking systems and monitoring strategies in RTP decisions.
