Modeling the Rowing Stroke Cycle Acoustically
Because elite athletes require an unconscious and automated sense of time, and because sound is especially appropriate for conveying timing information, acoustic feedback can be especially useful in training of rowers. In the context of human movement, rhythm is a time accurate sequence of motor actions. Rhythm and synchronization are inseparable within a moving context. An auditory feedback signal based on boat acceleration helps rowers control their activities, and this sonified data can be stored in an audio file for later training and analysis. The improved sensitivity to the time-critical nature of the rowing cycle yielded an improved synchronization among the crew, as well as an improvement of individual athlete’s rowing technique.
