In his presidential presentation to the American Orthopedic Association in 1975, Inman said, "Man is a machine that moves . . . and expends energy." He was all too ahead of his time. Profiling, by recognizing that the body is a machine with links, studies the biophysical, biochemical, and biomechanical links of the body's systems. These studies, carried out on athletes and potential athletes of all ages, yield data with useful clinical and research applications. The continued use and study of profiling data will certainly enhance performance, increase enjoyment of athletes for years to come, and, we believe, prevent injury.
