The impact of COVID on athletes - S-Training/ Webinar with Evi Wezenbeek from Ghent University

The impact of COVID on athletes Although we had all hoped that the Corona pandemic would have come to an end by now, unfortunately it continues to plague society. The impact of COVID on sports and certainly on sports practitioners (athletes) remains large. In this training we will therefore discuss the impact of a SARS-CoV-2 infection on the various systems in the body (cardiovascular, muscular, etc) and both the short- and long-term effects will be explained. This training will be based on a literature overview and our own research results in this area will be presented as well.

SAUVONS LES MÉNISQUES ET PRÉVENONS L’ARTHROSE DU GENOU Il y a 12 ans, les professeurs Philippe Beaufils de Versailles et René Verdonk de Gand ont initié le seul congrès au monde qui soit exclusivement dédié à la science et à la chirurgie des ménisques, les amortisseurs du genou. Il s’agit d’un congrès itinérant que nous avons l’honneur d’accueillir cette année pour sa 5e édition à Luxembourg. Ces deux pionniers sont mondialement connus pour leur travaux scientifiques sur les réparations et les greffes méniscales. Lors d’une CONFÉRENCE GRAND PUBLIC, ils tenteront de répondre aux questions que beaucoup de patients souffrant de cette pathologie orthopédique parmi les plus fréquentes peuvent se poser : C’est quoi un ménisque et quelle est son importance ? . Quand survient une blessure méniscale ? . Quels en sont les symptômes ? . Comment la traiter : faut-il opérer et si oui, comment ? . Pourquoi l’ablation méniscale n’est-elle plus systématique aujourd’hui ? . Quelles sont les avancées chirurgicales les plus récentes ? . More information

The link between physical and mental fatigue - Prof. Bart Roelands , PhD (Vrije Universiteit Bruessels, Belgium)

Sports science lecture on the role of physical and mental fatigue in sports Free to attend - Covid Check at entry (vaccinated, tested or recovered - checked via the QR code of your covid check certificate.Bart Roelands is a Professor at the Human Physiology and Sports Physiotherapy Research Group of the faculty of Physical Education and Physiotherapy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.Research interests: Physical fatigue, thermoregulation and brain neurotransmission during prolonged exercise.Every athlete will experience fatigue on a regular basis. It may be fatigue because of a short term intensive exercise such as a 200m sprint, or the fatigue experienced by a triathlete after an 11 hour race. In exercise physiology fatigue can be defined as an acute impairment of exercise performance which leads to an inability to produce maximal force output possible due to metabolite accumulation or substrate depletion. The processes that lead to decrements in performance can occur at every level of the brain-muscle pathway and although literature made a distinction between peripheral and central fatigue, one should be aware that both pathways are integrated. This line of research focuses on the central (brain and its neurotransmitters) component of fatigue.Mental fatigue and physical and cognitive capacity. The study of mental fatigue combines aspects of both exercise physiology and psychology and as such might prove to be a valuable asset in the search for mechanisms of fatigue in sports science. This line of mental fatigue attempts to provide some further insights in the mechanisms behind the underperformance on physical/cognitive tasks following the execution of a prolonged demanding cognitive task
