The InnoSportLab in Tongelreep has received one million euros subsidy.
The sport lab will work together with the TU/e and the technical university in Delft will use it to carry out sports research for swimming and rowing. Scientists Sander Ganzevles and Martin Truijens (also a trainer) will study how athletes react to training and recovery in this project. They will develop a sensor to gain insight into vital statistics such as heart rate, speed of movement and frequency of movement. In cooperation with departments from the technical universities in Eindhoven and Delft studying currents and the faculty of human movement sciences from VU Amsterdam they will seek to optimize propulsion through and under water. The project will develop new measurement systems and feedback forms in order to improve and fine tune swimming and rowing movements. “The shipping industry could also benefit from this research”, says Roald van der Vliet from InnoSportLab De Tongelreep.
