In our latest series of episodes of MetCast, we’re looking at the Winter Olympics and exploring how expertise and research from Manchester Metropolitan University Institute of Sport is influencing sporting performance and supporting healthy living.
In this episode, we talk to Dr Thomas Allen, Senior Lecturer in Sports Engineering, about the emerging trends in the sports equipment and technology we will see showcased at the Winter Olympics games.
Dr Allen talks about how new technology can help athletes with their training, improve performance and reduce injuries. We also discuss some of the latest trends in consumer products linked to the sports we will see at the games and how people can be inspired to take up a new sport.
