Validation of a weighted wearable training system for hockey skating

ROKET GEAR is a Canadian start-up that has developed a wearable training system for hockey skating. The system consists of adding weights strategically placed on the leg so that skaters can actually strength train while skating. As a result, the training system allows athletes to increase their effort during skating and to build strength in their leg muscles. This project will help ROKET GEAR determine the appropriate amount of weight to add to their system to maximize the strength training effects without actually disturbing the proper skating technique.
