“Estimating external workload in baseball pitchers is important for training and rehabilitation. Since current methods of estimating workload through pitch counts and rest days have only been marginally successful, clubs are looking for more sophisticated methods to quantify the mechanical loads experienced by pitchers. Among these are the use of wearable systems.”
Rimkus Special Consultant Dr. Jessica Zendler investigates human movement as it relates to the cause and prevention of injury, its effect on physical and sport performance, and how it is affected by interactions with products and equipment in complex environments.
Recently, Dr. Zendler authored a paper on the extent to which sensor location influences workload estimate. Read the full paper here.
