Determination of upper and lower limb coordination in freestyle swimming using body-fixed sensors

| Physical activity, sleep & industry news

GENEActiv were pleased to see further research presented at the SPIN (Sport Innovation) Summit, a Canadian sports technology and innovation conference. The research was carried out by C. Nieuwstad and J.M. Barden from the University of Regina, and the poster ‘Determination of upper and lower limb coordination in freestyle swimming using body-fixed sensors‘ was presented at the recent conference by C. Nieuwstad.

The GENEActiv devices were placed on both the swimmers’ wrist and ankle’s and their results demonstrated that the phases of the arm-stroke cycle and the leg kick are easily identifiable when using accelerometer-based data.

The combination of GENEActiv being waterproof, small and lightweight has facilitated this research into swimming, along with the ability to wear GENEActiv at any body location.
