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 […]

Auditory feedback in rowing

Most research on real-time feedback focus on the development of visual feedback. However, as rowing is a very rhythmic sport in which athletes have to synchronize with each other in order to perform, auditory feedback may improve performance as well. In previous research (e.g. Sigrist et al., 2013) it is  even suggested that well developed auditory feedback may […]

Verslag van Science and Engineering Conference on Sports Innovation

Vrijdag 7 april organiseerde het Sports Engineering Institute van de TU Delft een congres waarin Nederlandse sportonderzoekers updates gaven over hun laatste bevindingen. Ook het roeien kwam aan bod: Lotte Lintmeijer hield een praatje waarin zij uitlegde wat het effect van real-time feedback over geleverd vermogen op de trainingsintensiteit van roeiers in meermansboten is. Lieke Schiphof-Godart schreef een verslag […]
