The Monitoring special interest group (SIG) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Sport Magglingen SFISM is internationally renowned and a national leader in the development of survey methods for the measurement of physiological parameters and their application in monitoring studies focusing on sport in the military and recreational sport.  

Research and development

The Monitoring SIG’s principal remit is the development of measurement methods designed to gather objective data from wearable sensors on the type, intensity and other characteristics of various activities as well as on the physiological parameters of the test person when active. The main aim is to collect data on physical exertion in everyday military life and how this correlates with injuries and premature discharge from military service. Furthermore, the SIG is collaborating with international research partners on an early warning system to prevent severe physiological and psychological events (e.g. heatstroke). The SIG is represented on the co-management team of the BFH Centre of Health Technologies and participates in research cooperation projects in NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and CISM (International Military Sports Council)

Services

  • Scientific support for the centre of expertise for sport in the armed forces and Swiss Army training – including further development work on the ready #teamarmee sports app.
  • Internal and external validation and feasibility studies.

Teaching

Members of the Monitoring SIG teach the “Quantitative Research I” course on the SFISM Bachelor’s degree course and take on guest speaker assignments. As well as supervising the work of internal and external students at Bachelor and Masters level, the SIG offers 3-month placements.
