• The purpose was to quantify rowing kinematics of female rowers and compare how rowing mechanics concurred with the rowing style taught by the coaching staff.
  • Rowing kinematics at various paces were captured using Xsens motion capture hardware and processing software.
  • Point of application 1: Lack of knee extension at the end of the drive phase limited the knee range of motion and time for force development.
  • Point of application 2: Elbow flexion and hip extension occurred too early in the stroke leading to poor skeletal segmental interactions.
  • Point of application 3: It was determined that the rowers examined in this study did not use the Rosenberg style fully.
