The impact of fatigue on athlete health and performance is of significant interest to the sport science community. Traditional fatigue and recovery monitoring tools have limitations in terms of invasiveness, cost, and time-consuming nature. Therefore, there is a need for alternative, non-invasive methods that provide reliable and valid measures of fatigue and recovery. Pupillometry, a technique that measures various aspects of the pupil in real-time, has emerged as a potential tool for fatigue detection. To explore its potential, the present thesis aimed to explored the underlying factors of NBA game-play performance, and explored the potential of handheld quantitative infrared pupillometers (HQIPs) as a tool for monitoring athlete fatigue and recovery in a professional women¿s basketball setting. More particularly, the pilot study examined the potential usefulness of a HQIP to monitor game-induced fatigue inside a professional female basketball setting by determining its (1) test-rete...
