Now all the SABEL’ers are back from overseas we’ve had a second to take a breath and reflect about our time in Delft at the biannual International Sports Engineering Conference – The Engineering of Sport . What a cracking conference it was! Over 300 delegates with great representation from both industry and academia from all… Read More Recapping ISEA 2016 – The Engineering Sport 11.
We here at SABEL believe the adage that if you have only a hammer the only problems you can solve are with nails holds very true to sports engineering. In sport we face so many different engineering problems, therefore, we see working in multidisciplinary teams as vital for success. For us, it’s pretty simple –… Read More Celebrating Sports Engineering Diversity Part 1: Sports Simulation
So last week a photographer turned up at SABEL labs and asked us what we had been up to. Here’s a nice story the university wrote about us: When it comes to recording accurate performance data for elite athletes, GPS technology can’t keep up, a Griffith researcher claims. Instead, SABEL Labs has developed SABEL Sense,… Read More New Sports Technology Provides A GPS Alternative
Ever wondered if the technology we use to shape an athletes’ performance gives the best ability for motor learning? Well in essence that is one question of my PhD research topic. Sigrist and colleagues  in 2012 performed a literature review targeted at feedback mechanisms for motor learning. Their whole literature review was summed up,… Read More Designing Sports Technology For Optimal Performance: Are We Hitting The Mark?
While GPS is a popular tool in team sports its probably an overkill for most applications. I mean knowing exactly where you are standing on the planet is useful and all if you are lost. However if your interest is primarily in sporting performance then the derivative information like how fast you are running, for how… Read More SABEL Sense Tracks Athletes Without GPS
One of the benefits of being in my first year as a postdoc is sharing my own experiences with other postgraduate students. As I recently completed my own PHD in ‘The application of global positioning systems and inertial sensors to elite level team sports’, and graduated in December 2014, I really understand the importance of creating forums where… Read More Translating Research in to Practice
Congratulations David Lloyd and team on winning an ARC linkage grant with Phillips, Noraxon and Orthocell. A very exciting project to push some great science out into the ambulatory environment using wearable technology. SABEL Labs are delighted to be working with you!
