About the book

Our health and wellbeing are influenced by a varied range of factors such as social, cultural, economic, psychological and environmental across our lives. For the first part, sport or physical activity (PA) can be a good vector permitting linking the most factors. Physical activity for a human is very important. She permits to improve the feel-good and can get health benefits. Through the practice, human increase mobility and reduce risk of disease. The overarching aim is to increase the daily life quality. Changing adults’ behaviour by physical practice could reduce illness and decrease costs to society concerning health problems. PA improve feel-good and health benefits. This by increasing human mobility and decreasing risk of disease. PA reduces the risk of developing heart disease, decrease stroke, high blood pressure, cancers, diabetes and osteoporosis, control weight and help to ease stress. In the second part, sport for high-level athletes is also explored by the news technologies applied to practice and performance.

The purpose of this book is to quantify the state of progress in terms of the use of the latest technologies permitting to measure the impact of sports human from sedentary to high-level sports performance. Technologies can be artificial intelligence, virtual reality, modelling, simulation and Computing in the musculoskeletal system.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
