Last week, during the IX International Congress of Sports Science promoted by the Asociación Española de Ciencias del Deporte of Toledo, it was presented an interesting research on the reliability of the BTS G-Sensor during run.
The work “Estudio de fiabilidad del sensor BTS G-Sensor® durante la carrera” highlights the use of biomechanical analysis to quantify normal and pathological movements of the human being during barefoot running. The study involved 27 people that usually go running for at least 1h 30min per week, excluding subjects with musculoskeletal disorders, metabolic disorders and functional or anatomic dysmetria. Preliminary results have shown that the inertial sensor provides accurate and objective data as for the symmetry index and the pelvic dynamic ranges.
The study, conducted by the University Cardenal Errera of Valencia (Spain), confirms the validity of BTS G-WALK for the movement analysis making it an increasingly useful tool for the analysis of run in sports field.
