Swimsensor for top sports
Wearable sensor for athletes for monitoring heart and detailed motion analysis
The Swimsense is a waterproof, wearable device for professional swimmers that monitors heart & motion. A 2 trace ECG signal forms the basis for reliable heartrate and heartrate variability measurements during swimming. A 9DOF motion sensor is used to extract various swim features like stroke frequency, lap time, stroke type and instantaneous speed. Embedded algorithms classify all measurements in realtime. The compressed outcomes can be used to provide direct feedback to the swimmer or can be send wireless to the coach on the side using Bluetooth Smart. The coach gets an direct overview of the performance and compliance of all swimmers in the water. No more tedious offline scoring of high-speed underwater camera images, but detailed, accurate information in real-time.
