Volume 33 - March 2015NEW ALGORITHMS = NEW TRACKABLE LIFTS
NEW ALGORITHMS = NEW TRACKABLE LIFTS
EliteForm is continuing to leverage our patent-pending approach with 3D depth cameras. Based largely on coaches’ requests and usage reports, we’ve expanded the Trackable options for our PowerTracker systems.
Now included in both our Integrated and PowerTracker Lite systems are the following settings:
- Barbell Deadlift
- Barbell Unspecified
- Power Clean
- Trap Bar Unspecified
CONTEXT OF A LIFT
When EliteForm first began experimenting with different technologies to measure velocity and power, we explored various devices. From string-based systems to accelerometers and gyroscopes, we put a variety of ideas through testing that made our office look like an episode of “MythBusters”.
Through all that effort, one thing continued to stand out: 3D motion capture allowed us to capture not just single points of data, but the context of a lift itself. This lets us not only “see more”, but provides an incredible technology on which we can continue to grow.
It’s a hard thing to convey and, like in many cases, images tell the story better.
