  • Jeroen Klein Brinke ScienceWorks, Student Research Conference 2016

Abstract

According to sports coaches, the upper body posture is an important factor in running. This paper shows it is possible to detect an improper posture of a runner’s arm using a flex sensor. It does this by showing how accurately a flex sensor can describe an angle. It also shows in which location on the arm the sensor should be placed. Lastly, it is shown how the sensor performed in actual running exercises, although the accuracy during these runs was not calculated due to limited resources and time.
