Abstract The biomechanical evaluation of elite athletes often requires the use of sophisticated laboratory-based equipment that is restrictive, cumbersome, and often unsuitable for use in a training and competition environment. Small, low-mass unobtrusive centre-of-mass triaxial accelerometers can be used to collect data but may not reveal all the information of interest. This validation of centre-of-mass triaxial accelerometry uses previously reported synchronously collected foot-contact information from in-shoe pressure sensors. A qualitative assessment of the system output indicates that the centre-of-mass acceleration provides valuable insight into the use of accelerometers for investigating the biomechanics of, in this case, middle distance runners.
