Activity classification in sports is a powerful tool for athlete monitoring, enhancing performance and injury prevention. In handball, detection and classification of throws during a practice or a (practice) match has not been done. Therefore, the aim of this study is to use machine learning algorithms to detect handball throws and to classify...

Sweat analysis has the potential to become a new method in the wearable monitoring technology market by providing new and more precise physiological parameters. The need for more accurate sweat sensors has not allowed setting a correlation between sweat constituents and a person's health status. The development of this research field could lead...

been given to Human Activity Recognition (HAR) based on signals obtained by IMUs placed on different body parts. This thesis studies the usage of Deep Learning-based models to recognize different football activities in an accurate, robust, and fast manner. Several deep architectures were trained with data captured with IMU sensors placed on...

Baseball pitching is a movement wherein an external valgus moment around the elbow joint regularly causes an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury. A proven relationship between the muscle activation around the elbow joint and its capacity to compensate for the external valgus moment during a baseball pitch allows predicting the likelihood of a...

The purpose of this project is to design and develop a set of force sensors to measure steering forces applied by an athlete down the ice track. Currently, there is not enough information about instrumentation in skeleton, and to maintain competitive advantages, most of the research remains private and unpublished. Athletes use their shoulders...

In Bicycle Motocross (BMX) racing, a fast gate start is crucial for overall race performance (Rylands2014). The goal of this study was to (1) provide a better understanding of how cyclists effectively propel the bicycle during BMX gate start, and (2) identify pedalling variables which are good predictors of a fast start." <br/>

Introduction <br/>Elbow injury, especially Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) tear, is very common in baseball pitching. This is often attributed to high valgus torques repetitively stressing the ligament. The goal of this study was to research the effect of Elbow Flexion (EF) and arm External Rotation (ER) angle on Peak Valgus Torque (PVT) as well...

During team time trials in road cycling changing schemes are used to spread the workload over the cyclists in the team. Models that provide predictions of race performance already exist for individual time trials. It is proposed that with a performance model for team time trials, the performance of different strategies can be compared and...
