Jump Analysis

Jump analysis involves the use of force measurement devices to analyze the different elements of particular types of jumps:

  • Counter-Movement Jumps
  • Squat Jumps
  • Drop Jumps

By using one or two force plate(s) or pressure distribution measurement devices, jumps can be recorded immediately and analysed automatically.  If used with a force-plate the A/D capture module is also required.

TEMPLO® jump analysis is designed for sport scientists and trainers, working with athletes and aiming to improve their jump coordination and performance in their specific sport.

The Jump Analysis Software is suitable for:

  • Performance diagnostics
  • Coordination check
  • Fatigue training
  • Real-time feedback training system
  • Portable use
  • Combination with TEMPLO® video analysis

Analysis of Counter-Movement Jump, Squat Jump, and Drop Jump
– Automatic analysis of collected data
– Compatibility with all force plates
– Extensive collection and organization of various data points
– Separation of different phases in the jump cycle
– Organization of test participants for efficient testing protocols
– Export of data

– Integration of high speed video capture with Jump Analysis Module
– Use of 2 force plates to measure the forces of each foot during all jump phases
– Integration of EMG systems alongside force plates

Calculated parameters include:
– Maximum force
– Relative maximum force
– Mean force
– Mean takeoff force
– Flight time
– flight height
– vertical takeoff speed
– several others

Calculated jump events include:
– Initial contact
– Maximum and minimum force
– Start and end of flight
– Maximum rate of force deployment
– Flight time
– Contact time

  • One of the following force plates – AMT, Kistler or Bertec
  • According to the type of plate you choose, you may also need an A/D board
  • Laptop or PC
