BASES Webinar – Beyond the Scale: Evaluating Body Metrics in Health and Sport

August 13 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm UTC+0

BASES the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences

About

Body measures underpin life as we know it; from the trivial: the shape of the chair you’re sat on, the clothes you are wearing and the dimension of your devices, to the critical: the design of your seat belt, your qualification for medical treatments and the dosages of those treatment. In sport we typically place a lot of emphasis on the accuracy of these measures, however this has not translated into health – yet. This presentation explores the translation of body measurement expertise from sport to health, with a focus on childhood obesity
