Comparison of non-invasive individual monitoring of the training and health of athletes with commercially available wearable technologies
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-03-09)
Athletes adapt their training daily to optimize performance, as well as avoid fatigue, overtraining and other undesirable effects on their health. To optimize training load, each athlete must take his/her own personal objective and subjective characteristics into consideration and an increasing number of wearable technologies (wearables) provide convenient monitoring of various parameters. ...
A SWOT Analysis of the Use and Potential Misuse of Implantable Monitoring Devices by Athletes
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-09-05)
We have been following the developments and popularity of commercially available wearable sensor technology, as well as the ongoing discussion concerning its usefulness for improving the fitness and health of athletes (Düking et al., 2016, 2017; Sperlich and Holmberg, 2017) with considerable interest. Here, we would like to draw attention to a new generation of implantable devices (implantables) ...
Instant Biofeedback Provided by Wearable Sensor Technology Can Help to Optimize Exercise and Prevent Injury and Overuse
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-04-03)
With great interest, we have been following the developing variety and popularity of commercially available wearable sensor technologies, as well as the discussion concerning their usefulness for improving fitness and health (Duking et al., 2016; Halson et al., 2016; Sperlich and Holmberg,2016). Although many of these devices may not necessarily fulfill scientific criteria for quality (Sperlich and ...
Recommendations for assessment of the reliability, sensitivity, and validity of data provided by wearable sensors designed for monitoring physical activity
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-30)
Although it is becoming increasingly popular to monitor parameters related to training, recovery, and health with wearable sensor technology (wearables), scientific evaluation of the reliability, sensitivity, and validity of such data is limited and, where available, has involved a wide variety of approaches. To improve the trustworthiness of data collected by wearables and facilitate comparisons, ...
Integrated framework of load monitoring by a combination of smartphone applications, wearables and point-of-care testing provides feedback that allows individual responsive adjustments to activities of daily living
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-19)
Athletes schedule their training and recovery in periods, often utilizing a pre-defined strategy. To avoid underperformance and/or compromised health, the external load during training should take into account the individual’s physiological and perceptual responses. No single variable provides an adequate basis for planning, but continuous monitoring of a combination of several indicators of ...
The Potential Usefulness of Virtual Reality Systems for Athletes: A Short SWOT Analysis
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-05)
Virtual reality (VR) systems (Neumann et al., 2017), which are currently receiving considerable attention from athletes, create a two- or three-dimensional environment in the form of emulated pictures and/or video-recordings where in addition to being mentally present, the athlete even often feels like he/she is there physically as well. As she/he interacts with and/or reacts to this environment, ...
