Kine products have a wide range of applications in sports.
KineJump can measure the explosive power in the legs.
The “Vertical Jump” is the simple way to do this and it has been shown in several studies that jump height has a strong correlation to performance in the 60 meter sprint and to the amount of fast twitch muscle fibers in individuals.
The rate of force production is the ability of the neuro muscular system to activate a large number of motor units in as short a time as possible. This can be measured with the “Squat Jump”.
Power is generated by the work of the motor units, but it is also the ability of the individual to use its elastic force in the non-contractile components of the system. The elastic force is created by the stretch-shortening cycle and this can be measured with the “Counter Movement Jump”.
It is of interest to everyone to measure a subjects/clients physical status, and it is very convenient to do this with repeated jumps in the “Endurance Jump Mode” where the output is simply measured by the power the individual can produce over a given time.
An extra feature is that you can easily measure jump height in one leg jumps which can be very useful to measure the possible functional difference between the subjects/clients sides. It is also a great tool to evaluate athletes before they return to competition after injury.
KineLive can be used to correct muscle work and maximize training results. By analyzing the athletes muscle-work the most effective exercises can be pinpointed and the real-time bio-feedback helps to ensure that the exercises are executed correctly. It is much to common in sports that exercises are prescribed without taking individual differences in to account. A good exercise for one person is not necessarily just as good for another one. Using KineLive ensures the optimal results for every individual.
KineLive has proved to be very effective when athletes are recovering from injury and the use of it has enhanced recovery and shown results in incredible short time.
