The purpose of this study is to confirm whether the single IMU sensor module(LGE developing and providing for the experiments) that attached to the pelvis can distinguish the motion of the sub-techniques (V1, V2, V2A) with the accuracy of commercial XSENS(equipment consisting of 17 sensors) in freestyle(skate) xc skiing. Therefore, one elite male xc skier with eleven years experience was investigated by measuring the three-directional rotation angle for each of the three sub-techniques used in XC ski freestyle. Through this method, we could found not only the difference of motion patterns of each sub-techniques but also the possibility for replacement of multiple sensor system by a single IMU sensor module from LGE. Thus, it is expected that a single LGE IMU sensor module could be applied to repetitive and periodic sports such as XC ski.
