How is your Biomechanics? This will challenge you!

I have been pretty smug about my level of knowledge… I was confident I was up to date and had a good handle on the current science. In particular I was sure I had a very good idea about lower limb biomechanics, the role of foot pronation in injury and what constituted normal and abnormal. Then…..

  1. Simon. Reading about the rock steady end of the pistol in experienced shooters and yet variability in the rest of the limb, I wondered if, visually, this might be seen as the camera the moving camera man holds is steady but the mechanical arm the camera sits in absorbs / coordinates for the variability in bounce and motion as he moves. I might be wrong in my understanding of such cameras of course. But that would be consistent with my bmx knowledge as well 🙂

    • I actually worked with an Olympic pistol Shooter years ago Ian. She considered proximal stability, specifically at the foot, to be one of the most important aspects of her sport. I made her some awesome orthoses. She did not win a medal…
