O'Reilly, MA, Whelan, DF, Ward, TE, Delahunt, E, and Caulfield, BM. Technology in strength and conditioning: assessing bodyweight squat technique with wearable sensors. J Strength Cond Res 31(8): 2303-2312, 2017-Strength and conditioning (S&C) coaches offer expert guidance to help those they work with achieve their personal fitness goals. However, it is not always practical to operate under the direct supervision of an S&C coach and consequently individuals are often left training without expert oversight. Recent developments in inertial measurement units (IMUs) and mobile computing platforms have allowed for the possibility of unobtrusive motion tracking systems and the provision of real-time individualized feedback regarding exercise performance...

We report a very rare case of giant schwannomas of the sciatic nerve in a 39-year-old woman who presented with increasing swelling and discomfort in the posterior aspect of her right thigh. We demonstrate that even with such large tumours, surgical excision could be successfully carried out to resolve all symptoms while causing no permanent nerve damage. It remains paramount that large soft tissue tumours get referred to a sarcoma centre and be managed by a specialist multidisciplinary team.
