Rigging services

BioRow rigging services help rowers and coaches to verify if their rigging is correct, and setup the most optimal rigging parameters for the crew performance level, body dimensions and composition.

The rigging services can be provided in addition to BioRow biomechanical technique assessment, or separately. There are a few types of Rigging services:

  • Basic rigging is quick, inexpensive service, which can be used in large squads with many boats/rowers.
  • Advanced rigging uses individualized approach, includes measurement of rower’s dimensions and extended adjustments, which takes more time.
  • Rigging seminars and master-classes help rowers and coaches to understand it better and teach them to maintain an optimal rigging themselves.
  • On-line rigging consultations is an easy way to verify your ideas about rigging.
