Esports Summit: Living on 1HP: Early Research into Health and Performance in Esports


Academics, gamers, and global organizations are slowly beginning to build a body of research for esports medicine and performance. As of this year, the first two esports medicine research journals have been created and are available for publication. This presentation will will provide a general overview of existing research relevant to not only players but also the support staff comprising the infrastructure, as well as provide proposed areas for future research coordination between organizations, developers, researchers, and competitors. Panelists will include a variety of esports medical practitioners, including physical therapists, athletic trainers, and chiropractors, who have been working in the esports medicine sphere since 2015.
