Background and activities

The topic of my Phd trajectory is "Development of test concepts and determinants of performance in Paralympic sitting sports".

The following four studies are part of this PhD and are currently in the planning phase:

1. Peak aerobic capacity within and between Paralympic Sitting Sports - A systematic literature review (Study 1)

2. Laboratory-based determinants of  performance in Paralympic sitting sports 

a. Competition analysis and laboratory determinants of race performance in world-class cross-country sit skiers (Study 2)

b. Laboratory determinants of repeated sprint and technique ability in world-class ice sledge hockey players (Study 3)

3. The effect of disability on physiological responses and performance in Paralympic sitting athletes (Study 4)
