An interdisciplinary subject focused around sport, design, technology and innovation, sports technology covers performance testing technology used by sports scientists, coaches and athletes, along with the sports equipment used in training, competing and regulation of the sport, from stop watches to GPS to sports clothing to blood profiling. Sports Technology is an interactive text that integrates background literature, contemporary case studies, worked examples, and supporting visual aids and diagrams of scientific testing and practitioner demonstrations to aid student, athlete, coach and practitioner development. It focuses on sports technology and how such technology has been, is, and can be used to enhance sporting performance irrespective and independent of physical training and preparation. The text merges applied aspects of ergonomics, manual handling, functional anatomy, sports materials, and assessment of both the human (athlete) and machine (equipment), with a section on the historical development of the use of technology within sport as well as developments for the future. Briefly focusing on philosophical, ethical, and moral issues surrounding the use of technology in sport, the book engages with engineering and scientific interdependent issues and compromises encompassed by sports technology. This is the essential textbook for all students facing the challenge of creating the next generation of sports technology and sports equipment.
