Biomechanist market in Canada

Canadian sport organizations must invest more in biomechanists@canada.com

Dr. Allan Wrigley of the Canadian Sport Centre Pacific believed to be the only biomechanist working full-time in the sport field in Canada, says there needs to be a greater awareness among sport administrators, coaches and university programmers of the value of specialized sport biomechanical analysis.

England has 10 full-time biomechanists on staff and at least 20 others involved in performance analysis. The Australian Institute of Sport has a 27-member biomechanics and performance analysis team, that includes five biomechanists.
