Episode 135: In this Research Unpacked Episode from Inform Performance, Dr Dylan Carmody chats to Judd Kalkhoven an Associate Lecturer at Western Sydney University. Judd has recently completed his PhD with a thesis focused on the complexities of the muscle-tendon unit and athletic injury. In his current research he is seeking to determine the optimal muscle-tendon architectural and mechanical characteristics for elite athletes depending on their specific sporting demands. In addition, he has a keen interest in understanding injury causation and will produce further academic papers in this area.
