Mauro Testa born in Turin in 1959, degree in Motor Sciences with 110 cum laude.
From 2012, through a University specialization course (University of Turin) he became an expert in sport psychology.
Owner of Ergoconsult, Ergonomic and Biomechanical Consulting Company
Teaching orthodontics as a contract professor at the University of Chieti, he knows professionals who deal with posture and fall in love with his therapies, showing the benefits also postural produced by them. Since then he has been passionate about research on the effects of the environment, oral therapies and objects in contact with the body and on the influences of the environment on human posture on its performance and safety.
Since 1990 he has been in charge of Posture, Ergonomics and Biomechanics. He has always believed in research as a vehicle for innovation
In 2008, in collaboration with Dartfish, he started working in 2008 to develop his motion assessment software called Biomovie, while at the same time he tightened relationships with university spin-offs in order to develop new instruments useful for monitoring movement and training.
His first real contact with the football world takes place in 2001 when the National Amateur League decides to use the skills of dr. Head and of the Ergonomics and Biomechanics laboratory he has directed within the Scientific and Technological Park of the Piedmont Region.
Begins to test and collaborate in the development of surfaces for football, collects data that at the congress of Amsterdam 2012 are worth the public appreciation of FIFA
In 2015 he developed for FIFA and the World Rugby League a study on ground reaction forces in synthetic and natural football fields.
He has collaborated with Chievo Verona since 2008 as a consultant in biomechanics and in 2010 in Switzerland with Bellinzona, developing an innovative method of evaluating the movement called VTA, Video training analysis based on software that use video as an element of gesture analysis ( Dartfish / Biomovie).
Since 2012 he has been responsible for the Parma FC Research and Training Center, collaborating in the functional evaluation of the players with the aim of identifying protocols and tests useful for the prevention of accidents.
In 2015 he began to collaborate with Bologna football under Mister Donadoni.
From September 2017 he became responsible for the Biomechanics performance area of all Italian Soccer Nationals under the guidance of Prof. Di Salvo.
For his work in June 2002 he received the award from the President of the Republic of "Knight to the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic".
Ordinary member SIE, Italian Society of Ergonomics.
He gave a lecture on his research in November 2008 at the final for the title of American football champions in Los Angeles organized by MLS.
Author of national and international publications.
Articulatory Range Analysis and Proprioceptive Training: New Perspectives - Sunday 2 June 10.00 - 11.15
The evaluation of joint mobility is of particular importance for the personal trainer and the athletic trainer. Here we introduce a new system for the analysis and control of movement and functional limitations with the subject in charge and in a specific sport gesture.
The proprioceptive training will then be examined from an innovative point of view with new training tools.
New Wearable Tools for the Biomeccanic Assessment of the Movement - Sunday 2 June 15.15 - 16.30
The athlete's measuring means during normal training are based on the culture of a modern athletic trainer. Injuries due to joint and muscular overload can be avoided through the biomechanical analysis of the motor gesture even in groups of people. A personal interpretation of the future of the personal trainer's profession will also be given
