Visma Ski Classics Pro Team BSV IBEX and a researcher from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne are teaming up: The Pro Team wants to further improve its cross-country skiing technique with the help of sophisticated digital technology from Archinisis.
The analysis is much more detailed and precise than by eye, say developers and users in a TV clip by the Swiss channel TV Südostschweiz.
Lauro Brändli, Pro Team athlete, explains in an interview how it works:
“We are wearing a kind of bib with integrated GPS, which is measuring every single movement we are doing. It also recognizes which technique is used at the moment. The coach films the training and gives combined feedback afterward.”
With the technology Team BSV IBEX can do a much better analysis of the performance and improve their training and technique more efficiently.
