The aim of this pilot study was to conduct a first analysis approach on athletic and technical features of artistic roller skating using latest generation hardware such as Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and 50 Hz GPS, in order to establish sport-specific parameters that could create usefull elements not present yet in scientific literatures to evaluate performance. Our protocol was divided into two parts, one using K-Track an 200Hz IMU (K-Sport Universal, Montelabbate, Italy) and with K-Shirt with GPS 50 Hz (K-Sport Universal, Montelabbate, Italy); tests were performed by 2 athletes, one male of high international level and one female of high national level. The use of the two different devices has enabled them to be able to analyze skating in a more objective way and to highlight, above all, the positive and critical elements of the instruments, also to give them specific validation. This study was made with help of ARGS (Advanced Research Group in Sport) founded in 2009 by Prof. Riccardo Izzo of School of Health and Sport Science at Carlo Bo University Urbino and ENG. M.Marcolini of K-Sport universal.Pages: 10-14 | 873 Views 17 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
