Elite Athletes and those training to be, have a new technological way to track their athletic performance without having to use a stopwatch.
Stopwatches have become a thing of the past, as there is a new technological way to track your athletic performance. Polytan and Humotion GmbH have formed together to create a new athletic tracking technology called SmarTracks. The new high- tech system has been created so elite athletes and those training to be can “keep track” of their running performance.
The SmarTracks app can be downloaded on an Android mobile device, or a sensor belt can be worn around the waist to record data between magnetic timing gates. Magnetic gates are distributed across the track at certain points to record data of the athlete’s performance from one timing gate to the other. The data records motion from the magnetic timing gates allowing consumers to record distance, stride length, stride frequency, jump heights, tappings, splits performance, number and length of your spots and lots more.
Coaches, athletes and sports scientists will find this new product fascinating, as they will be able to use this advanced technology for the analysis of their athletes’ performance. Multiple athletes can use the SmarTracks system at the same time, collecting individual data simultaneously. The new technology is durable, waterproof, vandalism resistance and maintenance free, so if you want to train in wet or windy conditions, you can as the system is 100% protected underneath the surface of the track.
The first installation in Australia of the SmarTracks system was recently completed at La Trobe University, Bendigo. The aged athletic track was resurfaced by Polytan using a Spurtan BV system, that now provides excellent performance and with the addition of SmarTracks, can record data from any athlete with an android smart phone or SmarTracks belt. SmarTracks will now be used by university students and professors for research and biomechanical study purposes.
The new to Australia SmarTracks system is the smart way, to develop your athletic performance. The latest in performance analytics technology will empower athletes from grassroots through to Olympians to achieve their greatest performance.
