INTRODUCTION TO THE DEVELOPER: DR M Y HASSAN
Using the scientific based approach and platform that I have used to assist my career as National Sports Scientist for the Springbok Rugby team (2004 – 2007) to achieve success, I have developed the infrastructure template for public and professional utilization. I believe that this management infrastructure will facilitate effective health care management and development for any sedentary, active and professional athlete to achieve their goals of improving quality of life – Dr M Y Hassan
