Study of the mechanical and biomechanical performance of optimised and morphologically adaptable fins
Durability & Functional materials - Interfaces/Interphases: Ageing and Adaptability (IIAA)
Supervisors: JOLIFF Yoann, OSTRE Benjamin (COSMER)
The objective of this thesis is to develop a fin propulsion system that can be adapted to each swimmer. It will be carried out in 3 phases.
- A laboratory approach based on tests in the pool using the mechanical foot (measurement of the influence of plantar stimulation and determination of the limit conditions).
- Industrial validation of the optimised prototype (postural study, EMG).
- Valorisation (tests to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the system in order to produce a mass-produced product)
