This project was designed to assess improvements to injury mitigating and performance characteristics as tested through laboratory and field measures. Based on several meetings with MARSOC Command, Medical, and Human Performance personnel, prioritized objectives, and consideration for previously accomplished research within the Special Operations Forces community, the scope of this project was developed. The overall objective of this project was to measure the effectiveness of human performance programming implemented by MARSOC to refine human performance training based on identified needs of the Force. Two aims were executed 1 To measure the effectiveness of the MARSOC human performance program to improve injury mitigating characteristics based on previously completed trial and available data and 2 To perform longitudinal biomechanical, musculoskeletal, and physiological testing at Assessment and Selection, Pre-Individual Training Course ITC, and Post-ITC.
