Abstract: Two articles in this issue of Medical Problems of Performing Artists use specific technologies to advance our understanding of particular aspects of performance health. Clemente et al. used three-dimensional accelerometers to measure the motion of the head, jaw, and neck in pianists. Saito et al. used electromyography (EMG) in the soleus muscles of dancers along with transcranial magnetic stimulation to show that the corticospinal tract adapts to the demands of dancing. These two examples of the use of technology in performing arts medicine research led me to review past issues of the journal to get a better sense of which technologies have been more or less frequently used and how they have contributed to the state of the art.
