I accept simply received a link to a novel promising application developed for iPhone/iPod deport upon capable of using the accelerometer housed inward the smartphone to live on able applied to barbells for forcefulness testing too for monitoring forcefulness training.
The application is called LIZA too is available here.
It seems clear from the screenshots that it is possible to tape the power/load human relationship too calculate also velocity of the barbell:
And it seems to also offering the mightiness to compare tests performed at dissimilar times:
After testing is also capable of identifying maximum mightiness too the charge corresponding to maximum mightiness output:
A lot to a greater extent than information are also available inward existent fourth dimension too equally summary feedback to live on stored too to live on sent via email.
A video of how it industrial plant is available here.
It seems a really promising tool for personal trainers equally good equally for Strength too Conditioning coaches. At the minute at that spot is no information available on the validity too reliability of the mightiness calculations too on the accuracy of the using the accelerometer housed inward the iPhone/iTouch. I am certain presently nosotros volition encounter approximately validation papers on this tool considering the fact that the University of Udine is involved inward its development. Also, 1RM is estimated from the load/velocity relationship.
Liza offers also a low-cal version. According to the website, the low-cal version allows to perform the one-half squat test, to sentiment the resulting information too ship them via electronic mail or twitter simply similar the touchstone version; it is non possible to popular off whatever graphic representation nor relieve whatever data. The low-cal version displays approximately advertising banners.
I don’t purpose iPhone/iTouch, then I advise the readers to download this application too determine for themselves if it is something worth having. Considering the terms too the fact that yous don’t require whatever extra device, I advise this is something worthwhile trying for whatever professional person interested inward measure the consequence of forcefulness grooming programmes.
