Abstract

In this paper we present a new tool for athletes performance evaluation in real-time using two different biosig-nals (ECG and accelerometry). From the accelerometer signal, the level of activity was extracted based on a validation protocol, in which metabolic equivalent tasks (METs) values were calculated in real-time from a body-acceleration signal. METs values were obtained from various lifestyle and sporting activities, and compared with the results from the reference work (Crouter et al., 2006b) for the same activities. The results obtained showed correlation with the Crouter model. With the results we can conclude that present tool allows the assessment of the athlete performance based on ECG and accelerometer signals, being a versatile tool, which can be used by sports professionals and non-professionals.
