Wearables to measure body roll in swimmers

Using waterproof accelerometers at the shoulder level and waist, we measured thoracic and waist roll angles in swimmers with and without shoulder pain at different swimming speeds.

The graphs below show an example of individual data from the accelerometers and the decreased roll we found in swimmers with shoulder pain, as a potential contributor to their injury. These findings led to a publication in the journal Sports Biomechanics which can be found under my "PUBLICATIONS" page.
