Abstract

The purpose of the study was to determine effects of visual feedback presented by a complex measuring unit. Feedback pictures for the diver were selected for defined events because of the synchronized data from force measuring and the board inclination. With these images of the diver and an added reference picture (model stick-figure) the differences between the model and the actual performance were shown to the athletes. Fifteen divers took part in six sessions (each with six dives backwards and separated by one week) and got visual feedback within four sessions. Analysis of the dive height and of the differences between the divers' actual performance and the model performance show there are no differences between the first and the last session. Results supported, that four feedback training sessions are not enough to change the movement of the divers.
