¡New Workshop! Biophysical modelling of swimming performance
Speaker: Professor J. Paulo Vilas-Boas
Date: 4th November -> Start at 18:00 h Madrid Local Time / 17:00 h Portuguese Local Time
Brief presentation of the workshop:
In this presentation, a biophysical swimming performance model will be presented and its main determining factors will be analyzed: propulsive efficiency through propulsive generation, as well as the determinants of drag force opposite to the swimmers’ progression in the water. The evaluation methods (and drawbacks) will be analyzed, as well as their impact on the state of the art.
Future perspectives will include new strategies for evaluating internal load through inverse dynamics, including based on markerless motion capture.
