Using wearable microtechnology to measure precision of pre-determined change of direction incidents of varying angles.

Cumulative change of direction incidents can elicit high levels of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular fatigue which may alter mechanical loading on lower-body joints and subsequently reduce mechanical efficiency, underpinning an increased risk of injury. Inertial sensors have previously shown the capability to accurately identify and differentiate between a variety of sports-specific movements. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine whether an accurate and reliable algorithm could be developed to calculate the precise angle from a range of pre-determined change of direction incidents.
