Unique research data on the way

Important | 2023-01-02

The researchers of KTU Biomedical Engineering Institute (BMII) are happy with the opportunity to cooperate with the traveler, athlete, and KTU alumni Aurimas Valujavičius, who set off on a historic journey in a rowing boat across the Atlantic Ocean. During the trip, Aurimas will cover about 8500 km on his own, in a single-seater boat, in four months, or maybe even faster, and will set a Lithuanian and improve the world record. BMII researchers equipped Aurimas with measuring devices that will record the parameters of the athlete’s body and boat movements during the entire swim.

We wish Aurimas the best of luck and look forward to presenting an overview of the research to the scientific community.
