Elite Training Science & Technology
The HKSI uses the multi-disciplinary biopsychosocial model to formulate its support strategy in order to provide science-based, athlete centred support for elite training. The six centres in the Elite Training Science & Technology Division, namely the Scientific Conditioning Centre, Sport Biomechanics & Technology Centre, Sport Nutrition Monitoring Centre, Sport Psychology Centre, Sports Medicine Centre and Sports Information and External Affairs Centre, work as a team to identify the various training problems and concerns, and develop evidence-based solutions with the coaches. The support procedures are regularly updated through continuous monitoring, discussion and benchmarking against the latest research data.
