Sports Performance Fitness Equipment-Move, Measure and Motivate

Sports Performance and Athletic Development

The future of athletic development is training the brain’s ability to process. Responding to the ball or your opponent is the result of a series of communications involving your senses, brain and thousands of muscle fibers.  A big bench press doesn’t determine the best tennis player or linebacker; rather it’s the ability to Sense – Process – Execute.  In reality, sports are the complex physics problems solved in real time.  The patented TRAZER sports simulations recreate the complex physical and cognitive demands of competition to build the foundation for processing on the move.

TRAZER2-Sports Simulator-“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it”

The ability to REACT, START, STOP, CUT and maintain an effective STANCE is crucial to success in competition.  Until TRAZER, the technology to measure these critical components didn’t exist in modern athlete development programs.  With TRAZER, the coach and athlete now have the ability to measure the previously immeasurable in the training environment.

To maximize the athlete’s ability to REACT, you must be able to measure reaction time. The same is true for the ability to START, STOP, CUT and maintain and effective STANCE.

MOVE. MEASURE. MOTIVATE.

These three words define the difference between conventional training and sports simulation.

TRAZER’s high-speed, 3-dimensional tracking of the athlete’s body core enables delivery of game-like, interactive simulations controlled by the athlete’s sport-specific movement.  Research has shown that “training the brain to respond to unexpected stimuli is more beneficial than performing rote training exercises…”

Sports simulation better prepares the athlete to anticipate and react during game play.

TRAZER measures the previously immeasurable in a training environment to report reaction time, movement speed, power, acceleration and deceleration and core elevations.

Sports injury prevention programs based on pre-planned training activities do not replicate the unpredictability of sport, nor qualify the performance attributes essential to safe and successful play.

The IOC reports that “almost 80% of ACL injuries are non-contact…(and that) injuries often occur when landing from a jump, cutting or decelerating.

Proper training reinforces efficient motor programs.

New research shows that training your brain may be just as effective as training your muscles in preventing ACL injuries, and suggests a shift from performance-based to prevention-based athletic training programs (Science Daily, July 27, 2009).

University of Michigan researchers found that research suggests that training the brain to respond to unexpected stimuli, thus sharpening their anticipatory skills when faced with unexpected scenarios, may be more beneficial than performing rote training exercises in a controlled lab setting, which is much less random than true competitive scenario. In this case, expanding the anticipated training to include shorter stimulus-response times could improve reaction time in random sports settings (University of Michigan-School of Kinesiology).
