The benefits of the SmarTracks system can also be used for team sports such as football, volleyball and hockey.
One System – Five Tests
SmarTracks Diagnostics has the unique capacity of measuring different types of assessments using the same system. This means an athlete can perform runs, tappings, jumps and COD tests all in consecutive order, without having to change measuring equipment.
The five main assessment types that SmarTracks Diagnostics supports are:
- Sprint capacity
- Change of direction (COD)
- Jumping force
SmarTracks Diagnostics consists of innovative sensor electronics that are integrated into a textile belt and do not hamper the athlete’s freedom of movement. In combination with the SmarTracks Timing Gates – mobile or permanently integrated into Polytan running tracks – all important parameters are recorded and displayed on SmarTracks software.
The extremely lightweight sensor only weighs 35 g/1.25 oz. The sensor is positioned on lower back with the help of a light, elastic textile belt especially developed to avoid any hindrance while the athlete performs the assessments.
After the assessments have been performed, the measurement data collected by the sensor is uploaded and analyzed by the SmarTracks Diagnostics software. Depending on the size of the dataset, the analysis can take a couple of seconds up to a few minutes. After the analysis is complete, the measurement results are visible in charts or graphs. You can easily export the results in for example Excel-files.
