Equipment

Biodex System 4 Pro

The Biodex is a state-of-the-art dynamometer which can measure a variety of parameters including isometric and isokinetic force and power production. It has long been used as a rehabilitative tool. At ISSM, we use the Biodex mostly to measure changes in strength and power (as a result of training and/or nutritional interventions).

Dartfish Movement Analysis Software

This software allows for analysis of step-by-step movements, different movement angles, speed, and trajectory. It is also useful as a tool for demonstrating key movement techniques for athletics.

Delsys Trigno Wireless EMG System

This system comes with wireless sensors that can attach to the body. Each EMG sensor relays biofeedback about muscle activation and relaxation to the analysis software immediately and synchronously.

Tendo Weightlifting Analyzer

The objective is to analyze weightlifting records’ average velocity, acceleration, peak velocity, power output, and force produced for any barbell-based lift. These recordings can also provide insight on the experience level of a lifter and can remember up to 500 repetitions.

Watt Bike

The Watt Bike utilizes both magnetic and air braking resulting in a riding experience which closely matches the feel of the road. It is also fully adjustable allowing for the attainment of optimal riding position. Watt Bike software allows for the collection and display of a variety of data points including cadence, power output, heart rate, torque, and speed.

Monark Bicycle Ergometers

ISSM houses two Monark cycle ergometers. These are typically used for Wingate testing of maximal power development.

Woodway Treadmill

This impressive treadmill can incline to 20% and decline to -5%. It boasts a top speed of 25 mph. This is one of our most utilized pieces of equipment as it used for a variety of testing protocols such as VO2max and lactate threshold.

AMTI™ Force Plates

We use these force plates to measure ground reaction forces, balance, gait, and other biomechanical parameters related health and performance.

Concept2 Rowing Ergometer

The Concept2 is a reliable and accurate tool for the measurement of power production and human performance, particularly in non-cyclists or runners. It provides a multitude of data points including cadence, power output, speed, and distance.
