After spending a lifetime in the sport, in 2015 I realized I had many questions about swimming for which very few answers were available.
Looking at the big picture, I thought that myths, beliefs, and traditions weren’t allowing proper development of swimmers, and I was working half-blind trying to improve the athlete’s technique using trial and error. Moreover, the performance of many swimmers was getting worse while I knew for a fact that they were in better shape than ever before.
To help the swimmers progress, I needed to answer the very basic questions that had bothered me for a long time. Therefore, I decided to build a sensor that measures the propulsive force of the hand strokes.
