|Abstract: ||Competitive swimming is one of the most challenging sports to perform scientific research.
Not only the research of human movement is quite complex, because human beings are not
so determinists as other (bio)mechanical systems; but also, assessing human beings in
aquatic environment becomes even more as this is not their natural environment and other
physical principles have to be considered.
On regular basis, for human movement analysis, including the ones made on aquatic
environments, experimental and numerical methods are used. Experimental methods are
characterized by attaching bio-sensors to the subjects being analyzed, acquiring the biosignal
and thereafter processing it. Numerical methods are characterized by the
introduction of selected input data, processing data according to given mechanical
equations and thereafter collecting the output data. Both methods groups aim to perform
kinematics analysis, kinetics analysis, neuromuscular analysis and
