Are you avoiding one of the most effective methods for improving explosive power due to the risk of injury? Safe and effective jump training requires a precise combination of ground contact time and power output and Smartspeed with its Smartjump add achieves exactly that. Real-time feedback during jump sets ensures strict control of contact times and jump height, and keeps your athletes in the optimal plyometric zone.
Can you tell the difference between a good foot contact and a bad one? Safe and effective plyometric training involved targeting highly specific zones for ground contact time and power output. Objectively controlling the quality of plyometric training is almost impossible – unless you have Smartjump.
Using the Smartjump mat with your Smartspeed system means as soon as the athlete hits the ground they receive feedback, and can adjust their technique for every landing.
The Smartspeed and Smartjump Systems are complimented with both a iOS and Android app along with an online analytics platform. The Jumps dashboard has been designed to allow you to view results of a jump session. Select the jump variables you are interested in and then compare a specific athlete or group of athletes.
Smartjump measures a lot more than just jump height. A range of variables provide you with a comprehensive analysis of jump performance and its relationship with speed and agility.
Jump protocol data includes:
Contact time (CT)
Flight time (FT)
Reactive strength index
Peak Power Output (PPO) (using Sayers (1999) equation)
Power: Mass Ratio (W/kg)
Net concentric impulse
Smartjump’s unique real-time feedback mode uses light and sounds signals to engage athletes and fine tune their jumping technique while they are actually jumping.
