An invitation to Bec Pahl’s PhD confirmation seminar. Ms Pahl is a sports scientist with Swimming Australia and a QAS/Griffith PhD student studying the use of inertial sensors as an aid for training in swimming.

Thesis: Analysing front crawl biomechanics using an IMU-based method.
Date: Monday 12th December 2016
Time: 11am – 12noon
Venue: G16_1.11, Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus

Aims of the project: Given the technological problems that exist in analysis of swimming biomechanics, there are two major concerns in assessing and monitoring swimming performance. Firstly, there is limited knowledge of a swimmer’s change in technique over the whole distance swum. For example, due to limitations in technology, it has previously been difficult to monitor and quantify biomechanical aspects of swimming over distances more than 25 m, thus limiting the knowledge of technical changes that may occur, whether they are planned or not…
