EVALUATION OF RUNNING MECHANICS USING MOTION SENSOR FOR DISTANCE RUNNERS
Keywords:accelerometer, oxygen consumption, running motion, performance
AbstractThe purpose of this presentation is to show three cases of standard test to evaluate running motion on a 400m track, presenting the relationship of 02 consumption with the running motion at a treadmill test, and running motion during a distance race, and to discuss the effectiveness of motion sensor as a tool for tralning and coachlng in runnlng. These studies show that it might be useful to evaluate running motion by comparing running parameters of standard test to real race. Furthermore, the evaluation has a possibility to give criteria for training and a prediction of the race performance to a runner and a coach.
