AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
1080Motion, the developers of the 1080 Quantum™ system for advanced athletic training and testing, is heading to America. “After years of research and perfecting our Robotic Resistance technology in Europe, we are ready to start offering this technology to professional and university sports organizations in North America,” confirms CEO Anna-Carin Mansson.
From their US base in Texas, 1080Motion is focused on helping strength and conditioning coaches, and sports medicine professionals, achieve more from the exercise athletes perform in gyms and provide safer and more effective training methods to get athletes back in the game after an injury. Mansson adds: “We know that our system’s unique capabilities enable more effective training and better decision making which ultimately improves the performance of individual athletes and teams.”
So what is Robotic Resistance? Simply put - by using high precision electric servo motors and advanced computer algorithms, the system is a smart functional training and testing device.
The technology opens up for new training practices not possible with traditional methods. By applying individually optimized training loads and speeds, in the concentric as well as eccentric phase of a movement, it is possible to increase training intensity and stimulate the neuromuscular system beyond the ability of traditional forms of training. As a result, the athlete’s performance will increase, while using a lower total load as well as fewer repetitions and training sessions. This translates to a reduction of potentially damaging stress on joints and soft tissue, more time for recovery and more time for practicing the actual sport. When rehabilitating injured athletes the system can be used to provide a highly controlled training amount. This speeds up the recovery time and minimizes the risk for re-injury.
The robotic technology also measures the force, speed and power produced by the athlete in any functional movement pattern. This information is invaluable to the design, implementation and validation of effective training programs and assessment of sports teams and individual athletes. No other system today has this capability.
In Europe, 1080Motion has provided its systems and assessment methods to prestigious customers within professional soccer, ice hockey, sports research organizations and Olympic training centers. The Premier League Soccer team Everton, the home club of U.S. World Cup hero Tim Howard, is one of the latest organizations utilizing 1080Motion’s systems and expertise.
