SAFE RETURN TO SPORT

Returning to sports after injuries All patients are faced with the question after an injury and its treatment: When can I return to my normal Resume activities?" Activities vary from patient to patient, ranging from recreational to professional sports in various disciplines. In recent years, test protocols have been created to help answer this question more objectively. However, despite some improvements, these tests do not reflect reflect the "real" requirements of the various sports. With the new possibilities of virtual reality, these test protocols could be significantly improved. OSMI would like to support a long-term project, which includes a doctoral program for female sports scientists, in which answers to this exciting question were found and solutions to be developed.
