Our ambition is to continue our research to achieve three objectives:
1) To develop a ski reference manual as a smartphone application that we sell in stores to fund our research;
2) To develop a lively technology manual as a smartphone application that will contain, in graphic forms among others, observable components as an index, and a technological model materializing the progression of technical body efficiency (KPI) of the learner or the competitor, which will be sold to amateurs and professionals to support our research.
3) Developing a simulator for manipulating the physical model skier ski-context, to simulate changes in body techniques with the same equipment. And to simulate certain characteristics of the equipment for constant body techniques, to ascertain their biomechanical consequences and hypotheses emerge concerning the operation of the elements of physical skier ski-context system (model project) (model and project). Then we can provide coaches, athletes and manufacturers of equipment, experimental protocols to the test of practice and whether they are likely to improve performance.
To develop these applications and the simulator and to achieve our goals, we need to cooperate with a laboratory with expertise in biomechanics and computer software development,. We also need to work with an equipment alpine skis manufacturer to have the necessary data from their designs. And we must be provided with additional financial means.
But these projects are not part only in a cognitive temporality. They also think the pace of technological innovations. The methods we developed in 2000 should be updated with the current instrumentation: digital precision suggesting gains precision unimaginable at the time. In order to refine our data, we must therefore resume our experiments in adapting to new technologies capture kinematic data and characteristics of torques ski boot. We know that a laboratory have developed a procedure for analyzing movements in real time. This laboratory is willing to work with us. We also know that platforms measure torques ski boot that fits between skiing shoes, This technic has been developed by a Swiss firm that needs to be contacted to find out their lease terms or purchase.
We draw the attention of potential funders and cooperaters that the simulator and the various applications can be adapted to all practices of gliding sports, competitive or recreational, whose movement is caused by the single acceleration of gravity (skateboarding, rollerblading, snowboarding…) without major changes.
Thank you for your attention to our work and projects.
