Hamstring Injury and Muscle Volume
In this webinar, Dr. Silvia Blemker, a distinguished PhD and Biochemical Engineering Professor at UVA, sheds light on the factors contributing to frequent hamstring injuries by providing an insightful exploration of these muscles. These injuries are a prevalent concern in elite sports, imposing a substantial burden on both athletes and teams. Collaborating with esteemed researchers and the NFL, Springbok Analytics is currently pioneering the development of a comprehensive hamstring injury index and a framework for effective injury mitigation strategies. Leveraging cutting-edge advancements in musculoskeletal imaging, modeling, and AI technology, this innovative approach aims to enhance injury risk prediction, as well as facilitate prevention and treatment of not only hamstring injuries but also other muscle-related ailments.
