Ongoing Training, Support & Development
- Our team of experts is on hand to provide you and your staff with training on data analysis and interpretation to maximize the benefits of the system
- ForceDecks users benefit from a peer-learning group where elite coaches from around the world can interact with one another
- ForceDecks software continues to evolve with new tests, variables and functionality added regularly
ForceDecks software provides immediate feedback on classic markers of performance such as jump height and peak power in the counter-movement jump (CMJ).
ForceDecks analysis also provides a deeper insight into the athlete’s neuromuscular status and biomechanical strategies by calculating a range of ‘novel’ bilateral variables capturing force asymmetries in the eccentric, concentric, and landing phases. These variables can inform and enhance decision making around training prescription, fatigue-readiness monitoring, rehab progress and return to play.
WHY DUAL-FORCE PLATFORMS?
Like single platforms, dual platforms can be used to assess performance in double-leg tests, and strength and power asymmetries in unilateral jump and isometric tests. Unlike single platforms, dual platforms also provide an additional level of intelligence on neuromuscular status by evaluating the force distribution between limbs during double-limb tests, revealing critical information on strength asymmetries and compensatory strategies.
ForceDecks can also measure performance and asymmetries in static measures of maximum strength including isometric mid-thigh pull (IMTP), posterior chain, or upper body tests.
