Swimming is a very important sport in the Netherlands. Every year, 180.000 children receive a swimming diploma and the Dutch competitions contain more than 400 clubs.
For Swimmers, InnoSportLab the Tongelreep is the place to be. In the pool next to the lab, all kinds of facilities are used to perform measurements and to support coaches during the training.
Our laboratory is used by the Dutch National swimming team for many years and is responsible for a lot of achievements. Furthermore, at InnoSportLab De Tongelreep, it is also possible for you to train in this environment or have your own swim analysis.
Royal Dutch Federation Partner

During many World Championships and Olympics, InnoSportLab de Tongelreep is present.
Here, the races are usually analysed by members of our team using custom made software. The data then is used to compare the athletes with him/herself, the other swimmers in the finals and the rest of the world. Currently, there are some ICT interns working at InnoSportLab de Tongelreep to design new software in order to speed up data processing.
During regular training, the video-feedback software is often used. This is an automatic system which is useful to get feedback about starting, turning and swimming techniques immediately after performing this. The software integrates videos from multiple cameras, values from the starting block with force platform and data from previous attempts to give useful feedback.
