Why mNIRS 2024?


Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) has been used to measure muscle oxygenation non-invasively for over 30 years, informing on blood flow and oxygen consumption in sport, health and disease. The recent advent of reliable, cheap, wearable devices has led to a period of rapid expansion in the mNIRS field. End users are no longer solely academic researchers. Athletes interested in enhancing performance and healthcare professionals interested in well-being have entered the field. Currently, academics and practitioners predominantly present at conferences with very little NIRS content. We feel the time is right to launch a conference dedicated solely to mNIRS in all its aspects, where manufacturers, physiologists, sports scientists and clinical researchers can interact, learn from each other and share best practice. Hence mNIRS 2024 .


Day 1 will include practical discussions using real-world demonstrations. Day 2 will focus on presentations around the three themes of the meeting: method development, health and sports. Posters will be given a special focus with all presenters advertising their work via a one-minute flash presentation to the whole conference immediately before the session. The meeting will end with a round table discussion of the future direction of mNIRS.
