Human factors specialists often contribute to the design of sports clothing and equipment, training or recuperation facilities, training regimes and match management, in order to keep sport safe and enjoyable for millions to play and watch.
Can approaches and expertise be transferred, adapted or adopted from sport to sport to benefit those taking part?
What can other sectors learn from human factors activities in sport?
These questions will be discussed at this new event ‘Human Factors in Sport’ organised by the CIEHF, taking place at Loughborough University in June 2017.
