Wearable Resistance for Acceleration and Performance (WRAP) Project
Erin Feser | College of Health Solutions
The Biomechanics Laboratory of the Exercise Science and Health Promotion Program at Arizona State University will focus on determining the adaptations that occur following training for sprinting performance with a rotational overload – attaching weights to the limb via wearable resistance. If deemed effective, WR provides a low-cost, comfortable, mobile, potentially optimal, and highly individualized training tool to facilitate change in athletic ability. Future projects plan to assess the therapeutic applications for WR. The ASU Biomechanics Laboratory is partnering with the Sports Performance Research Institute New Zealand (SPRINZ) and Lila Movement Technology (Malaysia) for this project.

Wearable resistance loaded sprinting is superior in retaining speed qualities during in-season training.
