Laboratory experience:

Gym: strength and coordination training in evolved skiers

CeRiSM labs: functional evaluation of young and evolved skiers

CeRiSM labs: examples of integrated analysis of performance (kinematic, dynamics, electromyigraphyc, baropodometric and metabolic analysis) for evolved skiers
