A measuring station for assessing the coordination in double rowing on land has been developed. Two rowing ergometers are put on slides allowing to imitate the on-water team situation. Pulling forces are measured for both ergometers simultaneously. One ergometer is equipped with a device for measuring reaction forces at the foot stretcher. A set of parameters comprising time values, stroke length and force values characterizing the individual strokes and their synchrony are calculated. The system may be used to give extrinsic feedback to the rowers on their technique and on their coordination during training. In addition, seat specific differences can be analyzed (e. g. possible differences in the rowers' adaptibility). Coaches can therby be assisted in the team selection.
