Sport DB 2.0
Sport DB 2.0 is a collection of 168 cardiorespiratory datasets, acquired through wearable sensors and portable devices from 130 subjects while practicing 11 different sports during training and competition. Each dataset consists of demographic data (sex, age, weight, height, smoking habit, alcohol consumption, caffeine consumption, weekly training rate, presence of diseases and dietary supplement consumption), cardiorespiratory signals (electrocardiogram, heart-rate series, RR-interval series, and/or breathing-rate series), and training note data (sport-dependent training protocol). Cardiorespiratory signals were acquired through the BioHarness 3.0 by Zephyr, the KardiaMobile by AliveCor, the Kardia 6L by AliveCor, the Polar M400 by Polar, and heart-rate sensor H7 by Polar, on the playing field or gym following a specific acquisition protocol for each sport. Sport DB 2.0 may be useful to support research activity finalized to investigate the cardiorespiratory pathophysiological mechanisms triggered by sport, to develop automatic algorithms for monitoring athletes’ health while practicing sports, to validate the reliability of wearable sensors and portable devices in sport, and to develop data analytics techniques and artificial intelligence applications to support sport sciences.
