The development hardware and software aspects of a novel system for monitoring performance in the strength and conditioning domain are summarized in this paper. A development framework is presented to enable the capture of development processes and support detailed comparison of performance monitoring systems. The framework couples the established Computer Integrated Manufacture Open Systems Architecture (CIMOSA) with Unified Modelling Language (UML) to document both the software development and implementation. Corrective algorithms are proposed that have increased the accuracy of the IMU outputs in monitoring the performance of a countermovement jump. Lastly, a wireless Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) has been validated for use within the strength and conditioning domain by comparison with an optical motion capture reference measure.
