About this book

This book is designed to help athletes and individuals interested in high sports performance in their journey towards the perfection of human sports abilities and achievements. It has two main goals: accelerating the acquisition of motor skills and preparing and vigilantly reducing the recovery time after training and competition. The Diamond Sports Protocol (DSP) presents state-of-the-art techniques for current sport and health technologies, particularly neuromuscular electrical stimulation (Sports Wave), oxygen infusion (Oxy Sports), infrared (Sports Infrared Dome) and lactic acid cleaning (Turbo Sports). The book suggest DSP as an essential part of every future athlete's training, competition and health maintenance. The book is for everyone interested in superior sports performance, fast and effective rehabilitation from training and competition and sports injury prevention.

Chapter 1. Introduction

The present book, ‘Enhancing Performance and Reducing Stress in Sports: Technological Advances’ is designed to help athletes and individuals interested in high sports performance in their journey towards the perfection of human sports abilities and achievements, with two main goals

Chapter 2. Neuro-Biomechanics of Human Movement

Neuro-Biomechanics of Human Movement, introduces the scientific theoretical background for this book (see Fig. 2.1), which is later applied to modern technological advances (presented in the next chapter). This background theory ranges from the neurophysiological to thermodynamical bases of human movement, across anatomical, physiological, mechanical and computational aspects. It was the intention of the authors to develop this book as far as possible without any mathematical equations (with a little exception related to the father of biomechanics, Sir A.V. Hill), so there are no equations prior to the section on Computational Biomechanics.

Chapter 3. Modern Technologies for Increasing Performance and Reducing Stress

Modern Technologies for Increasing Performance and Reducing Stress, presents modern technological advances for the development of high-performance human movements, reducing training- and competition-based stress on athletes and preventing common mechanical and sports-related neuro-musculo-skeletal injuries
