The kinematics and kinetics of the tennis forehand stroke

The kinematics and kinetics of the tennis forehand stroke

Partner: Universitas Negeri Padang, Indonesia

This project attempts to investigate and quantify the kinematics and kinetics of the tennis forehand stroke through the use of high-speed optical camera systems and embedded force sensors in tennis rackets.

Research study on the physiological effects of firefighting on SCDF responders and the validity of breathing apparatus proficiency test (BAPT) procedures

Research study on the physiological effectss

Partner: Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF)

This study will provide SCDF commanders and trainers with a more comprehensive profiling of their firefighters’ physiological capacity and aid in the development of a more task-specific training programme.

Augmented reality in mainstream sports medicine: Marker-less motion capture system to diagnose and treat lower limb injuries

Augmented reality in mainstream sports medicine

Partners: Nanyang Technological University and Ministry of Education

This project aims to develop a marker-less motion capture system to gather accurate 3D joint kinematic data for possible use in a clinical setting.
