Premier is launching a sports research and training center at Collingwood Football Club in partnership with Monash University By the administrator of India Education Diary Bureau on October 4, 2023An innovative partnership between Monash University and Collingwood Football Club to improve sports medicine and participation has been launched by Prime Minister Anthony Albanese MP.
The world-class Victoria Sport Infrastructure project has established the Sports Medicine, Research, Development and Performance Center at the AIA Vitality Center in Collingwood and will include research into women’s health and sports performance, concussions, tissue injuries soft and the collapse of the players.
Completion of the project will enable leading research in the field of women’s health, as well as research into the causes of soft tissue injuries such as strains and tears of the hamstrings, calves and quadriceps.
The Albanian Prime Minister visited the new spaces, hosted by Collingwood chairman Jeff Browne and chief executive Craig Kelly, to celebrate their completion on the eve of the AFL final between the Magpies and Lions.
He joined dignitaries including Monash University Acting President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Susan Elliott AM at the official opening of the research and training centre.
As part of the project, Monash University and Collingwood have created a new sports medicine treatment, research and training centre, enabling Monash University-led research across a range of sport-related disciplines.
Professor Elliott said Monash University was proud to work with Collingwood and provide expertise to enable innovative research and education projects to benefit the wider community.
“Now that the infrastructure is complete, Monash University is excited to lead research and training programs at the new world-class center, particularly in the area of women’s health and performance.
“Our programs with Collingwood will focus on the health and performance of women and men in sport and reduce barriers to women’s participation,” she said.
Research projects carried out by Monash University cover four disciplines including:Women’s health and performance in sports, including pelvic floor muscle training (Ms. Jodie Dakic)the muscular mechanisms of hamstring injuries and why they occur (Professor Peter Malliaras)Head impact, collisions and concussion (Dr Stuart McDonald)Use of virtual reality in sports medicine (Professor Terry Haines).
Ms Jodie Dakic will lead a Monash University women’s health research lab at the center in collaboration with Collingwood, including investigating barriers to participation.
“Our research found that pelvic floor problems significantly hinder women’s movement and participation in sport, impacting their physical and emotional well-being,” Ms Dakic said.
“The goal of this research is to provide female athletes of all levels with effective treatments for urinary leakage to facilitate lifelong participation in the sport or exercise of their choice.
”Professor Peter Malliaras said, among other things, the soft tissue injury program seeks answers to an age-old question: why do hamstring injuries occur?
“We envision a future in which hamstring and calf muscle strains are avoided and elite and community athletes are not excluded from the field,” he said.
“The team will use its unique advanced imaging techniques to visualize the mechanisms of hamstring injuries, which could lead to better treatments to keep Australian athletes on the field and give them a competitive edge.
”Dr. Stuart McDonald said the concussion program aims to improve understanding of the mechanisms and consequences of head impact, improve the screening and diagnosis of concussions and enable personalized approaches to treatment. decision to return to play.
“Our research program is now generating the evidence needed to implement new objective tools to improve the management of head impacts in sports such as Australian Rules Football,”
Dr. MCDonald said.“In addition to improving player safety, our goal is to instill greater confidence in everyone involved in the sport and the athlete’s journey, including parents, coaches, trainers and doctors.
Professor Terry Haines said the virtual reality (VR) program puts the learner in the position of a sports coach standing on the sidelines and having to deal with a series of scenarios in which they might encounter a collapsed athlete .
“We want to help members of community sports organizations to be able and confident to deal with someone who has collapsed in the first critical minutes before medical professionals arrive,” Professor Haines said.
