Abstract [en]

Do extreme sports contribute to higher biomechanical stress compared to other sports? Kite surfing is one of the upcoming popular extreme sports,where very few have studied the mechanical forces that act on the body. There are several factors that contribute to mechanical stress. For preventing injuries, it is of high interest to investigate how these forces affect the body and how the equipment can be further developed to prepare the athletes for making the sport as safe as possible. This project will study injury prevalence, motion analysis and mapping of forces and pressure during kite surfing. The outcome will be a better understanding of biomechanics of kite surfing and a construction for testing and training as well as ergonomic design ideas for the equipment.
