LUGE FORCE HANDLES

Precision Force Measurement Performance

 

Motus originally developed this technology for use by the Canadian Olympic Luge and Ski-x teams. The handles measure 500Hz horizontal and vertical force data during the start. This data is transmitted wirelessly to the Motus Starts iPad App, where it is synced with video for real time review by coaches. Fourteen kits have been manufactured in house By Motus, and delivered to Own the Podium.

MOTUS PODIA

New Generation Integrated Sports Measurement System

 

The Podia is an integrated system of body wearable data-loggers, companion modules, and sensors designed by Motus for use in high performance sport analysis.  500hz logging capability, multi unit wireless sample alignment, high bandwidth wireless data transmission, and analog expansion allow extensive configuration options for data capture.  Motus iPad Apps allow on-site analysis of session data combined with video synchronization to provide visual feedback for coaches and athletes within seconds. Motus Review software for PC and MAC provides in-depth post session review of all logged parameters, comparative analysis of multiple session data, synchronization to video and GPS maps, and

custom report generation.

 

Further customization by Motus developers for sport specific applications is available to enhance training session productivity and post training analysis. Podia is also fully compatible with all existing SPIN MMS1 data loggers and force measurement systems.

 

The hub of the system is a data logger module, with a cortex M4 Processor, USB, GPS, Wifi, BLE, ANT, memory LCD display, 4 button UI, and CANbus based analog expansion.  The module is a waterproof,  60g, 6.5cm x 5.5cm x 1.6cm package. A run of 20 units were produced and delivered to Canadian Olympic teams.

MOTUS REVIEW

Analysis Software for Podia and MMS

 

This PC and MAC software was developed by Motus as a companion to the MMS and Podia hardware.  It provides a platform for coaches, biomechanists and analysts for in-depth post session review of all logged parameters, comparative analysis of multiple session data, synchronization to video and GPS maps, and custom report generation.

MULTISPORT MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
(MMS)

Instrumentation for Sports Science

 

The MMS was designed by the founding engineers of Motus for SPIN and Own the Podium in 2010 for use by Canadian Sports.  The MMS is a 200hz data logger with GPS, ANT+ and a 16 bit microcontroller.  Companion Review software allowed detailed analysis by coaches of athlete performance.  The system saw extensive use by several Canadian Olympic Sports organizations, and is still in service today.

rowing foot force sensor

Innovative strain gauge application

This prototype was developed as a proof of concept to test the feasibility of creating a foot force sensor for use in Competitive Rowing and Canoe Kayak.  Custom transducers with 32 individual strain elements report total x and y forces and center of pressure of force generated by the athlete real time over a CANbus interface.

Oarforce.png
oar force handle

Instrumented oars were designed to measure the “output” by each individual rower on the oar and provided valuable data and feedback for coaching.

This “output” included measuring the energy input of the athlete to the boat/crew system throughout a stroke, the rate of work (work/time), and the force describing the interaction between two objects resulting in acceleration (the product of force and time)

sprint start blocks

Running Sprint Start Blocks were used to measure both horizontal and vertical forces for both left and right sides of the athlete.  This was to provide immediate performance feedback by integrating force/inertial data with video synchronization.
