We consider that, with the computer-assisted learning on simulator (CALS), the swimmers’ gestures can be improved by adjusting the command and control program, which represents a major necessity in their training. In swimming, any technical method is made up of successive or concomitant interventions of many muscular groups. Computer-assisted learning on WEBA SWIM Ergometer can provide an accurate, intense and instant feedback, since in a motor act the adaptation and the command of higher systems are linked to a retroaction loop.
