Sports

The performance of the athletes today has almost as much to do with science as it does with the actual training. In the sport branch sensors are often used to track the performance and to monitor a certain training or race. Based on that feedback schedules can be adjusted and changes can be made.

Our measurement systems are used as well to monitor forces on certain materials, monitoring wear and tolerances. But also to monitor specific requirements of equipment used during sports & plays. Sensors for sports.

Contact us for more applications or a RFQ. You can send us an email or call +31 70 392 4421, our technical sales engineers are pleased to help you.

Sensors for sports

You will find our sensors in the following sports:
  • Cycling
  • Swimming
  • Football
  • Skiing
  • Racing
  • Running
  • Tennis

Types of sensors

These types of sensors are used for the sport branch:

3 application examples:


Dynamometric measurement in ski-jumping
This measurement is used to give the trainers a tool to improve the technique of the jumpers.

On the track the last 6-8m are supplied with platforms which are mounted on load-cells to measure the force of each leg by jumping off the track. This information is used to optimize the jumpers technique.


HIC Impact testing on foundations
The quality of the ground is a very important factor when it comes to determine safety of the various surfaces. The surfaces of a playground for children for example, this makes the critical drop height very important. Impact testing is also used to measure damping-ratio of a football field and other sport related surfaces.

Deltec Equipment developed the Head Injury Criteria (HIC) Impact Tester that enables the determination of this critical value by means of a test. The HIC Impact Tester consists of a hemisphere (artificial head) supplied with the Altheris tri-axial acceleration sensor that registers the accelerations that occur during the impact.

Combining both high tech sensors as well as software a complete turn-key solution is provided, meeting all necessary standards.


Dynamometric measurement in swimming
When the Omega-start-blocks came on the market the swimmers had the ability to start with an additional foot-rest to get more power.

For those blocks a dynamometric measurement was created which allowed to measure the forces for each arm and leg separately. This gives the trainer the information of the forces of the hands and feet of the swimmer. Additional they get the reaction-time of the athlete.
