In the following episode I talk with Violeta Ivanova, a Physiotherapist from Finland with a passion for the Esports scene. Violeta has completed a thesis looking at carpal tunnel injuries within Esports, which helps to add to the ever increasing list of current Esports physical health research. Violeta shares her experiences from her degree whilst also stressing the importance of ensuring positive physical health for Esports athletes, especially those that are concurrently focused on the grind. We also discuss Esports regulation, working within a multidisciplinary team and also touch on mental health for athletes and coaches. Violeta also talks about her experience completing and winning a Hackathon, where the idea is to hack a current problem and provide a solution.
Here are some great episodes to start with.
