Paper Abstract

A biostereometric analysis of gestures was developed for the study of the influence of an aqueous environment on the biomechanical behaviour of man. Developed power and time of execution were collected for different test conditions, in air and water. By 3-D analysis, the phases of movement (flexion-extension of the upper limb) were reconstituted and the displacements of each segment were calculated. The influence of the aqueous environment on the execution of gesture and the effect of thrust and ballast in water are described.
