Biomechanics of Para-rowing Here we present a case study here on the comparison of Olympic and Para-rowers in singles. Biomechanics of Para-rowing have many similar features with open events. The main differences were found in shorter drive length, shorter catch angles, and lower rowing power, which together with higher drag resistance resulted in slower rowing speed. 09/09/2023 View
Evaluation of Concept2 Comp Sweep Blades Recently, we have made our first biomechanical evaluation of the sweep version of the Comps oars... 31/07/2023 View
Visualisation of Catch Factor and Blade Slip During the optimal Catch Factor, seat moves to the now no more than 1.5cm. The blade must be accelerated backwards up to certain velocity to hit the water with its front or achieve a neutral entry. 09/07/2023 View
Tools and methods in Rowing Biomechanics Some rowing coaches like simpler monitoring systems, others prefer in-depth testing with BioRow system, and some successfully combine both methods. 09/06/2023 View
Mechanics of rowing accelerations Mechanics of the boat, rower and system accelerations, along with answers to common questions on the matter 01/05/2023 View
Practical points on boat acceleration A common practical question received from rowers and coaches is: “What should we do to achieve an “ideal” boat acceleration (BA) curve?” 31/03/2023 View
Gold standards for boat acceleration Here we continue the analysis of boat acceleration BA using the model developed in RBN 2023/01 for the evaluation of various aspects of rowing technique. Timing of the boat acceleration curve is the main indicator of“ Gold standard” of rowing technique. Its magnitude defines mainly ratio of active (rower) to passive (boat) masses. 08/03/2023 View
Modelling of boat acceleration Coaches and rowers ask: “Why are targets for the boat acceleration curve are not presented?”. Here is an attempt to develop a method of boat acceleration modelling. 09/02/2023 View
Summary of BioRow studies in 2022 2022 was a very productive year for BioRow, several interesting research projects being completed, as well as significant advances in rowing science being produced ... 02/01/2023 View
Video analysis of the World best rowers Videos of the best crews at the Worlds-2022 in Račice was taken using a HD panning camera for both gold and silver medallists in all boat types except eights. This new analysis tool opens very promising possibilities to discover many new insights of rowing technique and progress of our knowledge. 09/12/2022 View
