So those of you who subscribe to any of the sportEX publications will hopefully by now have received the January issues and you’ll see that in these issues we’ve really started to use some of the power of the internet to bring both the articles to life. Below is a sneak preview of some animations we’ve produced, courtesy of some brilliant imagery from Primal Pictures for an article on arterial compression syndromes at the shoulder featured in sportEX medicine. Enjoy!
If you visit our new YouTube channel you’ll also see a roundup of the interactive elements in sportEX dynamics and sportEX health has the interactivity built directly into the PDFs themselves. 2009 is already turning out to be an exciting year for us!
