Training software for a Concept II rowing machine

  title={Training software for a Concept II rowing machine},
  author={G. R. Palmer},
Concept II indoor rowing machines are a standard used by both professional and amateur rowers. A PM2+ (the display presenting numerical data to the rower) enables retrieval of real time data through a serial port. This project developed a system that retrieves such data and presents it in a graphical form to enhance training. More specifically the software represents a river with moving boats, upon which the user can race other rowers. The system also supplies the functionality to store… Expand


Developing a practical inclusive interface design approach
A methodological design approach for implementing inclusive interface design is presented and a description of a model, the inclusive design cube, is given that displays how the different approaches are complementary and can provide complete population coverage. Expand
Software tools for using a personal computer as a timer device to assess human kinematic performance: a case study.
A simple and inexpensive system is described to make use of the timing capabilities of a personal computer to use it as a timer, with applications in biomechanics and sport training, and the case of the Wingate Anaerobic Test is discussed. Expand
Instrumentation of an ergometer to monitor the reliability of rowing performance.
It was found that a rower's performance during simulated rowing was very reliable and that the selected variables used in this study could be used to objectively describe performance on a rowing ergometer. Expand

Biomechanics feedback for rowing
The links between the criterion of success in rowing, the time for completing 2000 m and the forces acting on the boat are demonstrated, and an instrumentation system for providing feedback of these variables to rowers and coaches is described. Expand

Training coaches to observe and remember.
The results indicate that, although all coaches were incapable of remembering more than 40% of pertinent information, the subjects in the experimental group improved their ability to recall all events that surrounded the 'taking of shots'. Expand
