Abstract

Abstract Research in biomechanics is one method available to improve the understanding of the performance of elite seated throwers, which depends on the interaction between the design of the athletes’ throwing frame and their throwing technique. The main purpose of this paper is to provide an outlook on the two approaches currently underlying this research. The specific objectives are (A) to describe the procedure, outcomes and limitations of the conventional approach, based on fundamental research, (B) to present the innovations and dynamic research procedure of an integrated approach based on applied research, as implemented by a multi-disciplinary team working together since 2000, from Athletics Australia (AA), the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and Queensland University of Technology (QUT). This approach relies on the integration of biomechanics within an evidence-based training framework. Furthermore, an example of the work conducted during training, in experimental conditions and during real-event around the foot placement of F33/34 throwers will be provided.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
