@Naperlou: I'm not sure material waste was the driving factor for this initiative, but rather a pleasant side outcome. The real goal was to optimize the kayakers' performance. As for the software costs, expensive, but becoming less so. And given that this was done via affiliations with different research and university entities, I'm sure they'd already made an investment in the software. But your point is well taken that this isn't a quick fix or cheap endeavor.

This type of attention to detail helps take sport to the highest level.  By optimizing the equipment, it all comes down to the athlete taking advantage of what they have. 

It is interestging, though, when talking about the material waste of the manual method and comparing that to the softwarre costs.  I wonder if it is really less expensive.  Those packages are very expensive.
