INFORMATION ABOUT SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AT THE INSTITUTE
In accordance with the priorities of science and technology in our country at the Turkmen State Institute of Physical Culture and Sports of the topic “Physical Abilities and Ways to Achieve High Performance of High-Level Athletes” Research work is being carried out in collaboration with the specialists of the Physiological Clinical Center Hospital of the Ministry of Health and Pharmaceutical Industry of Turkmenistan.
Sources of scientific literature, official information, internet news and suggestions from coaches are being studied in depth at the Olympic Games. High-level athletes are undergoing a comprehensive examination, and the physiological limits of physical ability are analyzed by indexes. Athlete's anthropometric, physiometric, and biophysical indicators are studied through innovative technologies (Kettler Veloco-Geometry, ECG, EHO, Dynamometer, Spirometer, Pulse Oximeter, etc.). It has also been scientifically established that as a result of regular monitoring of food, training, and health, the physical and technical capabilities of athletes engaged in certain sports are increasing.
Cardiorespiratory medical examinations are regularly carried out to effectively use the achievements of modern technology in the training of athletes of the National Olympic Team in Sports and to study the functional capabilities of athletes on a scientific basis. Thus, their functionality is analyzed and studied in detail. Medical-biological, psychological, dietary and rehabilitative care is provided when needed. Analyzing the physical, physiological performance and technical and tactical training of athletes who are preparing for the XXXII Olympic Games to be held in Tokyo, the capital of Japan in 2021, is being carried out on a regular basis.
