Created in 1999, the project of research PARASHOT project focuses on the biomechanical aspects of the performance of athletes with a disability, with a particular emphasis on the so-called stationary throwers.

This website and the newsletter are the main internal and external communication tools of this project.

This website is primarily a depository of the lists of studies, team members, collaborations, grants, publications and impacts.

Nonetheless, it also includes information associated with the on-going developments through news, newsletters, links and synopsis.

It is designed for a range of readers including the participants of the project, professionals involved into the developments of stationary throwing events (i.e., athletes, coaches, officials, referees, scientists), and individuals with a keen interest in all aspects of biomechanics.
