Sport Technologies

Courtesy of 'Orthopedic Tech Review'When an athlete wears a prosthetic technology, such as a knee brace, the muscles, tendons and ligaments around that are weakened, amputated or outered in a McLuhanesque fashion.

When a skilled athlete is produced by disciplinary technologies of space, time and modality of movement, the unpredictable is predictably weakened, amputating the central nervous system in the process.

And if the yoke of technology is not thrown off early, a downward spiral of mutual dependency is created that the athlete is too weak to escape.
