Force plates can detect and measure the forces an athlete or rehab client exert into the ground. Force plates provide helpful training insights for coaches, trainers, PTs, and recovery specialists on performance outcomes and rehabilitation processes.
Both strength tests (i.e. isometric mid-thigh pull) and jump tests (i.e. countermovement jumps) can be performed.
Force plates can be used during performance testing, rehabilitation to assess limb asymmetries and imbalances, and also as a tool for monitoring fatigue and progress in athletes on a day-to-day or weekly basis.
WHAT WE MEASURE WITH FORCE-DECKS
Accelerations and reactions
Body symmetry & muscular imbalances
Peak force production & Jump height
Reactive strength index (RSI), dynamic strength index (DSI), Eccentric utilization ratio (EUR)
Tool to monitor fatigue in athletes
What are the benefits of improved neuromuscular efficiency to performance?
At Elite we can develop a program for neuromuscular training to improve the ability of your nervous system to generate a fast and optimal muscle-firing pattern; these exercises create compensatory changes in active muscular patterns and facilitate dynamic joint stability.
