The EIS delivers a range of performance impacting sport science and sport medicine services to over 30 Olympic and Paralympic sports and worked with 86% of the athletes that won a medal at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Its 250 practitioners work in multi-disciplinary teams to provide a holistic service that supports coaches and Performance Directors (PDs) in helping to improve the training, preparation and performance of their athletes. The sport science and sport medicine services delivered by the EIS are underpinned by leading-edge technology and engineering and its areas of expertise cover: Sport Medicine, Physiology, Physiotherapy and Soft Tissue Therapy, Strength and Conditioning, Performance Nutrition, Performance Psychology, Performance Analysis, Biomechanics, Talent Identification and Performance Lifestyle. It also has a range of practitioners that work specifically with Paralympic sports.
Some of the EIS's sports medicine practitioners are based at the ISEH, where they deliver high quality medical care to elite athletes. Working out of the ISEH enables the EIS's medical practitioners to provide a fast and effective one-stop-shop service to athletes, enabling them to receive a high-quality scan and consultation in a single visit and leave with an agreed plan to manage recovery and return to training. EIS Doctors based at the ISEH are also actively involved in research into issues relevant to elite sportsmen and women, including tendinopathy and stress fractures.
