COMET-Projekt Digital Motion präsentierte Ergebnisse bei der ECSS in Sevilla

Predicting the level of fatigue when skiing

Salzburg Research was represented at the ECSS European Conference for Sport Science Seville together with partner organisations as part of the COMET project Digital Motion (DIMO). The project consortium presented there:

  • Stefan Kranzinger (Salzburg Research) presented the poster on “Predicting the rate of fatigue during skiing on a ski treadmill based on ergospirometric data”. The aim was to predict the rate of fatigue during skiing using ergospirometric data.
  • The scientific director of the COMET-Forschungsprojekts Digital Motion, Thomas Stöggl (Red Bull Athlete Performance Center), was invited to present experiences from the project in the Invited Session “How good are we in quantifying Training/Competition Load, Fatigue and Performance? New findings”. Topic of the presentation: Methods and concepts for monitoring training and competition loads: Opportunities and challenges.
  • Eric Harbour (Uni Salzburg, PhD in DIMO) hielt in der Konferenz-Session “Ausdauertraining und Testing” einen Vortrag zum Thema “Breath tools: Wie man die Einhaltung der Atemmuster beim Laufen instruiert und quantifiziert”.

COMET project “Digital Motion in Sports, Fitness and Well-being”

Sport should be fun – only then can it become an integral part of lifestyle. Within the framework of the COMET competence centre Digital Motion, led by Salzburg Research, industrial companies are working together with research institutes to develop smart running and skiing equipment.

Around 4 million euros in research funding is available for the COMET competence project Digital Motion for four years. Half of this budget comes from the participating industrial companies, the other half is funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency FFG and the Department of Economic Affairs of the province of Salzburg.

The participating companies reflect the complex interplay in the sports and leisure industry: they include component producers and integrators (Suunto, Digital Elektronik, SCIO, Textilveredelung Grabher), sports product manufacturers (adidas, Atomic, Amer Sports), service providers (ABIOS, Red Bull Media House, Gesundheitszentrum Bärenhof, Simpliflow International) and the destination Schladming-Dachstein. Research know-how comes from the Salzburg Research Forschungsgesellschaft (Human Motion Analytics), the University of Salzburg (IFFB Sport and Movement Science and the Center for Human-Computer Interaction) and the École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (Laboratory of Movement Analysis and Measurement).
