Sports medicine is one integral scientific disciplines of the AISTS Master of Advanced Studies programme and is led by Dr Boris Gojanovic. It brings participants up to speed with the current challenges in maintaining a healthy and performing human athletic body.
As part of the module within the medicine discipline, students work together in small groups to prepare a short presentation around a particular case study, summarising relevant medical information. Their task is to present this as an informative podcast at the end of the module. Each month we publish the top student presentations to help you stay informed and up to date issues within the sports medicine world. The AISTS Sports Medicine podcast series was created by the AISTS Head of Sports Medicine, Dr Boris Gojanovic (@DrSportSante) and are entirely scripted, recorded and produced by participants of the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration programme.
This year’s first AISTS Sports Medicine Podcast looks at the topic of "Can new technologies in MotoGP prevent riders from clavicle injuries" presented by Valentina Poggi and Tim Cetinich, class of 2017. Did you know that the maximum speed of a MotoGP motorbike is 361 km/h, 100 km/h more than the speed of an aeroplane that is taking-off. On average there are over 100 accidents a season with nearly every single rider injuring their clavicle to one extent or another, making it one of the most common injuries. Valentina and Tim present the facts and most recent findings for this common injury and look at how technology can help to decrease the incidence of it. Find out more here.
