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 […]

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 […]

Looking for an intership or research project in rowing?

Rowing&Science is looking for highly motivated students who would like to expand their knowledge and scientific view into the competitive practical field of rowing. In the project “optimizing propulsion” we have several projects that start around January/February 2016. One project will focus on the effect of real time feedback on behaviour of rowers, while others will be more […]
