New findings for the optimization of training, sleep and diet are part of the program

Individualization within professional sports and in training programs will be the focus of session 6 on the afternoon of November 17 at the MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE. The contributions will show how genetic markers and molecular blood markers or metabolites can be used for individualization within sports. Sleep expert Dr. Sarah Jakowski will report on how sleep management can be individualized in top-class sports. In a research project, she is investigating sleep behavior, sleep patterns and individual sleep management strategies in junior and elite sports. One current topic is the consideration of gender. In her article "Sportswomen are much more than just small sportsmen", Prof. Petra Platen, sports medicine specialist at the Ruhr University Bochum, demands that female-specific characteristics like the menstrual cycle should receive greater attention when planning training and competitions. She is currently a scientific study together with the German Athletics Association (DLV). Speaker Prof. Mara Konjer, vice president of sports development for the DLV, will show the importance of (in)equal treatment of male and female athletes in her study as an important determining factor for the participation and national success in international women's sports.

The individualization of sports medicine has multiple facets, many of which will be addressed by the MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE and its nearly 30 speakers. Among the partners of this 10th edition of the conference, which has been accredited as an advanced training program by the German medical board, are: DGSP (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sportmedizin und Prävention), the German society of sports medicine and prevention, dvs (Deutsche Vereinigung für Sportwissenschaft), the German association for sports science, WISS (Bundesinstitut für Sportwissenschaft), the federal institute for sports science, FIMS (Federation Internationale de Medecine du Sport), EFSMA (European Federation of Sports Medicine Associations, EiM (American College of Sports Medicine), Sport Speaker, WT Wearable and Technologies Group.
