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
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
