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

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
Effect of using Catch Training System An experimental evaluation of the effect of using the BioRow Catch Training System (CTS) was recently conducted on a group of nine junior scullers. 29/10/2016 View
Trends of boat speed, stroke rate and race strategy after Rio-2016 Olympics In Rio-2016 Olympics, the races were won by means of longer distance per stroke and a higher effectiveness of work per stroke, not by higher stroke rate. The winners had higher boat speed over the first and last 500m sections, and relatively lower speed in the middle of the race. 1.4% higher effective Work per Stroke creates the probability for a crew to move one place up in final ranking. 26/10/2016 View
Calf muscles in rowing It is common knowledge that rowing utilises nearly all human muscles, but the function of calf muscles still remains unclear 08/08/2016 View
