Although analysis of superperformers in this manner may shed some light on problems that are unapparent in novices, model templates for the improvement of athletic performance should be self-generated. The second consideration is much more complicated, for it involves the determination of the least number of channels required and the anatomical placement of the telemeters for a given level of accuracy in prediction. Reducing the number of telemeters (regardless of how unobtrusive they may become in the future) is obviously advantageous, because they must be attached to the athlete while the motions are performed.

Those clinicians who offer biofeedback as a relaxation therapy tend to be less concerned over the use of any particular modality. Some practitioners develop psychophysiological profiles by observing changes across several modalities to a standardized stressor or relaxation tape. Following this evaluation, a modality for feedback is chosen on the basis of preset criteria regardless of the systems involved in the presenting problem. However, it has been observed that biofeedback therapy is optimized when targeted toward reconditioning the specific system involved, and that profiling as currently practiced is probably unnecessary.

With respiration biofeedback, however, consideration must be given to both RR and TV. Research suggests that TV should not exceed 700 mllbreath, given the fact that mechanoreceptors for lung pressure and respiratory muscle tension are activated above this threshold level (Robertson, 1972). This peak TV is achieved PHYSIOLOGICAL PERCEPTION 47 at about 50% V0 2 max and should not be increased further as the athlete approaches AT in order to avoid respiratory inefficiency and fatigue. Thus, in addition to simply monitoring RR, the sport psychology technician is obliged to monitor and feed back optimum TV with some type of spirometer or flow meter.
