MIPS – From biomechanical research at KTH to a revolutionary helmet technology sold worldwide
Madelen Fahlstedt , MIPS
Technology to decode, predict and enhance human movement
Elena Gutierrez Farewik , KTH
Our research is focused on quantifying movement strategies employed by the central nervous system and on unraveling the complex relationship between movement performance and underlying motor function, using a combination of experiments, simulation and device development.
New generations of ice rink technology developed in collaboration with KTH
Jörgen Rogstam , CEO, EKA – Energi & Kylanalys AB
An overview of the development of primarily the cooling/heating technology currently used in ice rinks and how it has gradually developed through a long-term collaboration between industry and academia.
From skiing to recovery
Christer Norström , entrepreneur
Christer will talk about his journey from a digital coach for skiing, Racefox, to working with structurally similar applications but in other areas.
Adaptive technology to follow the rhythm of the heart in sports
Seraina Dual , KTH
In order for athletes to perform best in endurance sports, the efficiency of the pumping of the heart is a key factor. However, the effects of sports activities on our heart are not very well studied and understood. We measure the effects of movement on the heart during exercise and study if the rhythmic alignment of the heart with stepping could have meaningful consequences to improve performance in sports.
Blue light and photocatalysis in swimming pools
Thord af Klintberg, KTH
The technology has been able to halve the addition of chlorine, which results in healthier swimming pool air and a longer lifespan for the swimming pool.
Digital Math – paradigm-shift in predictive simulation and STEM education
Johan Jansson , KTH and Icarus Digital Math
Paradigm-shift in predictive simulation recognized by NASA and Formula 1: Reliably design by simulation in the web browser, 100x faster and cheaper than industry standard.
The role of data visualization in sports engineering
Mario Romero Vega , KTH
Mario's short presentation will focus on examples where data visualization has advanced the science and research of Sports Engineering. Also, the talk will introduce the audience to InfraVis, the national research center for data visualization.
