Accurate power output values with only few inertial sensors

In our recently published articles [1 and 2] we have shown that the commonly used method to calculate power output is flawed (see also this blog).  To determine accurate ‘true’ power output values we came up with an alternative method.  This new valid method differs from the commonly used method with an amount that is equal to […]

Power in rowing: response to Kleshnev’s October 2018 Newsletter

In his most recent Rowing Biomechanics Newsletter (October, 2018), Dr. Kleshnev comments on two studies that were recently published in the Journal of Sports Sciences (see Hofmijster et al. ,2018; Lintmeijer et al., 2018). In these studies, we explain why the common method to determine rowing power is incorrect, we determined how large the error is and […]

Read now: our article on the flaws of power output calculations in rowing

We proudly announce that our article on power output calculations in rowing has been published. In this article we show that common calculations of mechanical power output are incorrect. Additionally, we provide a theoretically correct method to calculate power output in on water rowing. The following article on experimental data will be published soon. The […]
