SCST plans to allocate about 1 million rubles to finance research projects of the Republican Scientific and Practical Center of Sports

The State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus plans to allocate about 1 million rubles to finance research projects of the State Institution "Republican Scientific and Practical Sports Center". This was announced today by the Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology Alexander Shumilin, during his visit to the Republican Scientific and Practical Center of Sports. For the next five years, it is planned to implement projects to assess the biomechanics and the response of the cardiovascular system to physical activity using a suit with 3D modeling, to develop modern recovery techniques after reconstructive knee surgery and to study the risk of developing pathology of the musculoskeletal system. “The Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Sports actively cooperates in the scientific and practical direction with the Ministry of Health, the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and the State Committee on Science and Technology. Such close cooperation made it possible to bring the work of the center to a fundamentally new level - the laboratory of sports injuries boasts unique domestic technologies and modern high-tech equipment," said Alexander Shumilin.

In turn, the director of the Republican Scientific and Practical Sports Center, Irina Malyovanaya, said that the laboratory diagnoses the condition of the musculoskeletal system from the cervical spine to the feet and treats injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system of high-level athletes using regenerative medicine methods. “With the help of an optical-topographic system, we are able to diagnose disorders of the musculoskeletal system, as well as determine the presence of muscle imbalance in athletes. The main advantage of the optical-topographic method is the absence of radiation exposure, which makes this method indispensable for dynamic monitoring of athletes,” she stressed.

In the laboratory of sports injuries, more than 1.5 thousand athletes have already been examined, who, according to the test results, were given individual recommendations for rehabilitation and the training process. Currently, the RSPC Sport has begun work on the provision of high-tech services for export. Due to this, government investments will be recouped and the inflow of foreign currency into the country will increase.

To conduct scientific research using the latest modern equipment, including the Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Sports, a scientific and educational cluster "Innovative technologies in sports" has been operating in the republic since February 2020. Its creation was initiated by the Belarusian National Technical University (BNTU) and the Belarusian University of Physical Culture and Sports. At the site of the scientific and educational cluster, within the framework of the State Program for Innovative Development of the Republic of Belarus for 2021-2025, it is planned to implement the project "Creation of a Scientific and Innovation Center for Testing Athletes of National Teams and National Teams of the Republic of Belarus." The center is supposed to organize a comprehensive control over the functional state of athletes: determining the individual level of various sides of fitness and cumulative training effect, identifying the deep reserve capabilities of the body of athletes, determining the factors limiting the development of special working capacity on the basis of special tests that correspond to the goals and objectives of the stage and period of training with taking into account the specifics of the sport.
