In competitive running and sprinting, even small mistakes can have significant impacts on the results. When you’re talking movements carried out in two-tenths of a second, it can become difficult to understand how to improve, which is where Sprint Academy comes in. They have designed the Bounce Box, which can be used to provide real-time, objective feedback to sprinters on their performance. Best of all? Its rugged design means it can be thrown down anywhere training is happening – no fancy lab required.
To achieve their aim, Sprint Academy uses the SparkFun RedStick to provide instant feedback on athlete’s ground contact time, an important metric for sprinting in any sport.
