Sports Bio Mechanics: Profile

The continuous scientific advancement in sporting arena has made sports training more purposive, factual and very specific then ever. Sports scientists are leaving nothing to enhance in order to find out the performance enhancing and affecting factor as well as the best result oriented training systems for every sports.

Biomechanics is an applied form of mechanics and consequently the method used to investigate, it must be derived from those of mechanics. However, bio mechanics have not developed in the wake of mechanics but as bordering science in other scientific discipline such as anatomy physiology and technique of sports.

Biomechanics is a specific field which evaluates the motion of a living organism (in this program's manual we are only concerned with human beings) and the actions of forces on that organism. We can look at biomechanics as a combination of several different areas of study. This would include anatomy and physiology, kinematics (the study of motion without regard to its causes), kinesiology (the study of human movement) and kinetics (the study of forces acting on a system).

Understanding biomechanics, human moment and joint function allows the fitness trainer and wellness professional to have a deeper understanding of how to train an athlete or fitness training client.

Biomechanics is an applied form of mechanics and consequently the method used to investigate, it must be derived from those of mechanics. However, bio mechanics have not developed in the wake of mechanics but as bordering science in other scientific discipline such as anatomy physiology and technique of sports.

The role that biomechanics can play is becoming more widely understood in the sports community and the demand for service increasing, researcher in sports bio-mechanics will have to consider carefully how much time they can devote to the provision of scientific service without empairing their performance. To avoid the problem inherent in this situation it may be necessary to develop programme of study for training of technician in sports bio mechanics, technician who can provide the kind of service sought by sporting kind .

The role of biomechanics in attaining high performance can not be overlooked, since it is the only science which help identify the faults of performing technique very precisely. There are basically two methods by which skill can be analyzed. They are qualitative and quantitative. High speed moule film for exactness has been used extensively to examine in great details of the movements which occur too fast for the human eye to detect. In many of elite sport training and research institution around the world, force applied during high calibre sporting event, while the analysis test have done much to improve understanding of movement and the performance of elite athletes, the analysis task faced by the coach are predominantly qualitative in nature.

People who are working in this field should have a basic knowledge about how a body moves, what are the major group of muscles, joints and in what proportion and degree they are to be used to get an optimum out put. This approximately can provide an understanding of the nature of any skill, their economics way of execution and their dependent factors, which in turn can build into a larger scheme of economic movement.

One of the major problems in this field is the measurement of what one might call good body mechanics, objectively, without undue dependence upon inconsistent subjective judgments. The body is enable to stand because first of all mechanical laws of equilibrium are satisfied.

The center of gravity of the body is involved in all consideration of equilibrium. The position of the center of gravity of the body is a major factor in determining the soundness of the stance that is advocated in any techniques in any sport in order to accomplish the desired objective most effectively. Therefore, this factor must receive most careful attention.

The horizontal velocity of a projectile is constant. The projectile thus travels equal distance in a horizontal direction in equal intervals of time. The vertical velocity of a projective is constantly changing due to the influence of gravity. The projectile thus travels unequal distances in a vertical direction in equal intervals of time. The constant horizontal velocity and constantly changing vertical velocity of a programme cause it to follow a parabolic flight path. The horizontal range of projectile depends, on its horizontal velocity and its time of flight. The time of flight of a projectile depends on its vertical velocity at release and the relative height at which it was released and the height at which it landed.

The best method to evaluate technique is called cinematography. This is a quantitative method which is very accurate but at the same time costly and time consuming.

Cinematography is the technique most frequently used in sport biomechanics research for obtaining a record of human movement. These film records are quantitatively analysed to obtain linear and angular displacement time data for total body or segmental movements. Typically, the basic displacement time functions of a motion do not provide sufficient information to describe fully the activity thus, these data are further treated mathematically to determine the respective velocity and acceleration functions .

The role of cinematography in biomechanical research involved from a simple form of recording motion to a sophisticated means of computer analysis of motor efficiency. Over the years, new techniques in filming and timing having been perfected to aid the research in achieving accurate time measurements of both simple and complex locomotion patterns .

Recently videotapes has begin to replace conventional motion picture for teaching and coaching purpose. Since video tape is enable, reusable does not require any developing it is more economical than film. The relatively inexpensive portable recorders are simple to operate and permit immediate play back. Thus video tape has significant potential for instruction. Pictures taken of students performing motor skill can provide them with further insight into their own actions, a greater appreciation of the mechanics of sports skill and increased interest in improving their performance.

However, the cricket as such as being played in limited countries irrespective of its vast popularity. As a result of which it could not be flourished to the maximum potency, though the advancement in techniques and in nature of the game has been tremendous apart from all these developments no steps have been taken to make it more scientific by constructing the test and validating them preparing the norms. Any part of educational discipline without some form of evaluation procedure is like a ship in the sea without a chart or compass .
