History of rowing force measurements The age of force measurements in rowing surpasses the age of the modern Olympic Games: the first study of military doctor Leon Passover from Saint-Petersburg, Russia was published in 1893 14/03/2018 View
BioRow data analysis When rowing is measured with any telemetry system, the raw data looks like a long chain of waves, where each peak represents one stroke cycle, which makes the amount of data overwhelming and difficult to comprehend. BioRow averaging algorithm was developed and used for more than 25 years now, works correctly and reliably and provides effective data analysis and feedback in rowing and other cyclic sports. 16/02/2018 View
Using legs and trunk during the drive Why having “shins vertical” is a desired starting point at the catch? Why is opening up with the trunk at the catch a problem? When is the best time to open the trunk? 19/01/2018 View
New BioRow developments A new BioRow® 2D force sensor for a foot-stretcher was recently developed, which can be used with our erg system as well as in the boat. We are working on connection of BioRowTel system to NK EmPower instrumented oarlocks. The ‘Master’ unit of the BioRow® system is able to connect wirelessly with oarlocks. 25/11/2017 View
Analysis of Worlds-2017 results The first World Championship of the new Olympic cycle recently took place in Sarasota, USA. Moderate weather conditions allowed results close to the long-term trend (Fig.1): the average speed of the winning crews was 13th fastest over the past 25 years. This year revealed a dramatic increase of the racing stroke rate... 22/10/2017 View
New system for technique improvement How does rowing on the erg affect technique in the boat? Discussions on this topic are quite popular in the rowing community. Our new BioRowTech system is quite a simple, but effective tool for rowing technique improvement for rowers at all levels. 16/09/2017 View
Case study on rowing efficiency Interesting data was obtained recently: two LW2x performed the standard BioRow® test protocol side-by-side, so the weather conditions should be the same. The boat speed was higher and drag factor was lower in Crew 1. How it was possible at the same weather, equipment and crews’ weight? What could be the reasons of higher rowing efficiency in crew 1 compared to crew 2? 12/08/2017 View
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
