University of Bolton, Lancashire, United Kingdom
We are lecturers and practicing professionals in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Our undergraduate BSc/BA (Hons) Sports programmes are dynamic vocational degrees delivered with the physically active in mind, whether that is within the local community, the recreational or professional athlete. Our experience and expertise in professional sport and private industry allows the sports student to gain first hand and current knowledge in the field of sports medicine, exercise and training. We maintain strong links in industry, which provides our students opportunities for excellent work experience placements. Community events also allow students to voluntarily offer their skills to assist the competitor, which further strengthens the role and credibility that our sports students play within the health and exercise medicine spectrum. Our in-house Sports & Spinal Injuries Clinic and Athlete Development Centre also provide our means of actual practice and teaching where we welcome anyone wishing to have their injury managed, or fitness tested, advised and monitored to the highest standards using recent and researched methods to access our facility in Bolton One.

Wanderers FC Academy Isokinetics testing

Today and Tuesday saw the Academy football players at Bolton Wanderers come to the Athlete Development Centre for isokinetics testing.  This basically looks at muscle output for their quadriceps and hamstrings at different speeds, as well as the balance between these important muscle groups, their fatigue rate and highlighting any bilateral imbalances.  This allows the medical and conditioning staff to address specific player needs and personalise their training programmes to help prevent injury and assist the players development at this important time in their career.
