This proceedings volume of the ISEA 2008 examines sports engineering, an interdisciplinary subject which encompasses and integrates not only sports science and classical engineering but also aims to bridge the gap between the analysis of the equipment and the athlete himself. The areas of interest include the mechanics, biomechanics and dynamics of sport, the physiology, anatomy and the analysis of movement, instrumentation, equipment design, surface interaction, materials and modelling, and many others. These various topics could be part of technology applications practically in every sport. The proceedings will be of particular interest among others to Engineering, Physics, Mathematics and Sports Science Departments and will act as a forum where research, industry and the sports sector can exchange state of the art technology, dedicated knowledge and innovative ideas.A custom-built dual axis accelerometer (MAX2312G/M, MEMSIC, Inc, USA) with an MP150 data acquisition system (BIOPACK Systems, Inc, USA) was attached to the middle of the treadmill (95T, Lifefitness, USA) running board (figure 1) toanbsp;...
