Accelerometers and engineering: The key to much safer ski or snowboard jumps

Triumphing in sport is undoubtedly a matter of training and dexterity, and these are also necessary to avoid fateful injuries. But technology can also help in this regard, namely accelerometers in conjunction with engineering to achieve greater safety in ski jumping and snowboard.

The idea of the team of Nicola Petrona and other members of the University of Padova (Italy), who could implement his studio on the slopes of San Vito (Italy), after failing to carry out in the United States. It is a matter of achieving, through the redesign of the ski ramps, that the jumps have the same impact regardless of the distance traveled.
