Criteria of the technique at the finish While numerical evaluation of catch technique was developed at the end of 2015, similar factors for the finish technique still remain unknown. This article is the first step in this direction. 21/07/2017 View
New system for erg biomechanics A new system for biomechanical measurements on the Concept2 ergometer was developed by BioRow Ltd. for Oxford Brookes University. The system measures handle and four stretcher forces, and positions of the handle, seat and shoulders. It was found that better force transfer through the heels helps to maintain handle force during the second half of the drive. 18/06/2017 View
Standardizing of biomechanical data It was found that BioRow data could be used for standardizing of the measurements of the EmPower instrumented oarlock. To do so, a database containing more than 22,000 samples collected with the BioRowTel system during the last eight years was analysed. 15/05/2017 View
Evaluation of EmPower oarlocks EmPower instrumented oarlock (1) became available last year as a result of collaboration between Nielsen-Kellerman and BioRow Ltd. As this tool is getting more and more popular, we receive many questions about interpretation of the measured data and its validation. To answer these questions, a special experiment was recently conducted. 21/04/2017 View
New BioRowTel Measurement system with WiFi BioRow™ measurement system BioRowTel was recently upgraded with WiFi capability 29/03/2017 View
Biomechanical evaluation of boats and oars “Which boats and which oars are faster?” Questions like this are very often asked by rowers and coaches in an attempt to improve the performance of their crews. 19/03/2017 View
Biomechanics of technical drills. Part 2. Here is the further analysis and discussion on biomechanics of technical drills, which started in the previous Newsletter. 19/02/2017 View
Biomechanics of technical drills Technical drills are widely used for teaching novices, and the perfecting of rowing technique. 14 drills were identified as the standard sequence of a technical session and were performed 1 min each in M4x equipped with the BioRowTel measurement system. 04/01/2017 View
Recovery phase and boat speed efficiency Only the stroke rate and length of seat travel affect the boat speed variation and efficiency; other characteristics of the recovery phase appeared to have no effect on it. The length of legs drive should be optimal and excessive seat travel could be counter- productive 19/12/2016 View
The Biomechanics of the recovery phase The “mirror principle” was statistically confirmed: A well-timed preparation of the trunk (“pivoting around hips”) during the middle of recovery is related to its later engagement during the drive and the most optimal sequence. Later, trunk preparation during the recovery (“diving into the catch”) is related to an early “opening” of the trunk during the drive, which is inefficient. 22/11/2016 View
