University laboratory of biomechanics and sport analytics and engineering in Gdansk as an important science institution

MOJ Applied Bionics and Biomechanics
Erdmann WS, Aschenbrenner P, Dancewicz-Nosko D, Kowalczyk R, Urbanski R


Polish scientific biomechanics started in 1920s. This was applied at first to the biomechanics of physical education and sport. Institutional biomechanics in Gdansk started in 1971. Main areas of research of Gdansk center were: 1) human morphology, 2) human kinesiology, 3) muscle mechanics, 4) biomechanics of sport – general approach and many applications to sport disciplines, 5) image methods used for research of movement, 6) sport engineering, 7) biomedical engineering, 8) forensic biomechanics. In 2019 scientists of the Laboratory of Biomechanics and Sport Analytics and Engineering were engaged in the following areas of interest: 1) geometry and inertia of athletes, 2) distribution of velocity along the running track, 3) biomechanics of speed skating, 4) high jumping in athletics, 5) forensic biomechanics. There are altogether about 30 scientific areas developing by the Gdansk sport scientists specializing in biomechanics, analytics, engineering, many of them on the world level including at the best world level.
