The 1st Workshop FUNCTIONAL SCREENING & BASES offered sport scientists, physiotherapists and orthopedic shoe technicians an overview of the latest state of knowledge in the field of Functional Screening – the diagnostic method of Functional Training.
Nina Gras (sport scientists and sport engineer), showed the pros & cons and fields of applications of different screening tests. She focused on BASES - Body Assessment and Specific Efficiency Screening, that is currently the most comprehensive full-body screening tool.
The advantages of an objectivization of the manual diagnostics with software were indicated, using some pratical examples. During the subsequent live analysis of a top long distance runner, the participants could pursue the workflow with the software TEMPLO Functional Screening and contribute with their existing knowledge during the analysis. They received a deeper insight into the biomechanical relations from test movements, test methodology and generation of results.
The successful day ended with a constructive panel discussion. Every participant gained from many impulses, tips and suggestions for the practical application home.
