PEDAL FORCE FEEDBACK TRAINING TO REDUCE BILATERAL ASYMMETRIES

In their study, Bini et al. (2016) aimed to examine the pedal force asymmetries before and after sessions of pedalling retraining focused on reducing bilateral asymmetries in pedal forces. They recruited trained cyclists and triathletes (n =20) who were firstly asked to complete an incremental test to exhaustion, with intensity increments in a ramp profile. Following a 30 min passive rest, they completed three 1-min sets at 70 % of their corresponding maximal power. During these trials, forces at the pedals were measured using a two-dimensional pedal dynamometer. Asymmetry index was calculated from the peak total force.

 

A BALANCING ACT BETWEEN PEDALLING EFFECTIVENESS AND SADDLE STABILITY

I came across the pressure mapping technology used in cycling biomechanics years ago over a webinar, but it didn’t really get my attention as I just couldn’t find any published evidence on validity and reliability of those measurements. Things changed last year on Eurobike, where I met Lotte and Daniel from GebioMized. 

 

MASTER CLASSES IN CAEN, FRANCE 2016 – TECHNOLOGY, INJURIES & SCIENCE

We are delighted to be actively involved by organising a special master class with an aim to bridge the technology and cycling science.  Advanced diagnostics systems, including force pedals, pressure mapping, 3D kinematics and EMG, will be practically and theoretically presented in a context of cycling analysis. 

 

CYCLING BIOMECHANICS OPTIMISATION

Whoa ... what does that phrase even mean? For starters, it’s so vague - just the term ‘biomechanics’ is so broad that it would be almost impossible to cover every single interpretation of its meaning! So, with this post, I’d like to explain what is meant by ‘cycling biomechanics optimisation’, and also to present a case study of a cyclist with initial poor biomechanical performance.
