Tom Dos'Santos - Show Notes

In this episode Tom Dos'Santos and I discuss a range of change of direction concepts including the performance and injury conflict. Tom is a Technical Demonstrator at The University of Salford and has just completed his PhD titled 'Biomechanical Determinants of Performance and Injury Risk in Change of Direction'. Tom has a range of useful publications available through his Research Gate page
