THREE-DIMENSIONAL ASSESSMENT OF ON WATER ROWING TECHNIQUE: A METHODOLOGICAL STUDY
Keywords: rowing, motion analysis, kinematics
AbstractThe analysis of rowing technique in training or competitive environments has been a challenge to biomechanists for some time now. Typically, two-dimensional assessments are carried out with fixed cameras mounted on-land next to a rowing course (Hay 1993) or by handheld cameras from an accompanying boat. Three-dimensional technique analysis were only presented for athletes rowing on an ergometer in a laboratory environment (Hofmijster et al. 2007). The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a system for three-dimensional kinematic analyses of on water rowing.
