Tol, J. L. (2017). The Basketball and Muscle Injury (BAMI) study: NBA/GE Research Grant.
The NBA and GE Healthcare has the ACES team as one of the four institutes with a NBA/GE Research Grant of $300.000 for Game changing innovative sports research: The Basketball and Muscle Injury (BAMI) study. The BAMI study targets preventing hamstring and calf muscle injuries and re-injuries. In the first of three separate studies, researchers in Amsterdam will use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to examine what actually goes on within injured muscles to help in preventing re-injury. The second and third studies will use strength testing and MRI to determine which exercises are the best for preventing hamstring and calf muscle injuries.
