The HiTrainer ATP+ is a “non-motorized treadmill” designed to run in the drive position of the acceleration phase, forcing complete core and posterior chain engagement. – the prime movers of forward propulsion. It is the preferred position for deploying maximum power, ground force and energy expenditure.
The HiTrainer ATP+ captures data on the right kind of speed that is needed. This very precise measuring tool identifies Peak Speed, Peak Power, Time to Peak and Left / Right Forces. This relates directly to the first crucial 3-4 steps in every power sports. The same steps are crucial in developing maximum acceleration. The HiTrainer will also identify lower limbs imbalances.
The ATP+ option provides power and force readings driven by the addition of precise sensors behind the chest pads. The left right data received from these load cells allow trainers to ascertain if the user’s movement pattern is symmetrical while running, ie. equal amount of force produced on each side of the body. Imbalances might lead to the discovery of:
If athlete has recovered from injury physically
If athlete has recovered mentally from an injury
If the proper bio-mechanics are in place (technique)
If an un-discovered imbalance has the potential to cause further more debilitating injury.
