Is there anything that is used by Rugby strength coaches in NZ and/or AUS to obtain objective feedback about bar speed and power output, similar to what is obtained with a Tendo unit?April 14, 2009 at 11:01 am #25145onspeedGuest
GymAware from Kinetic Performance Technology is commonly used
personally I like the tendo unit – its rawer sure but its robust too
if you are a tiny bit technically minded you can make your own system using standard range force transducersApril 15, 2009 at 3:40 am #25146adk13Guest
I use the Ballistic Measurement System (BMS) by Fitness Technologies with our cricket squadsApril 15, 2009 at 8:33 am #25144fergusGuest
Completely off topic :
As a young buck interested in trying to see whether I was making any progress etc, once asked a coach once what he used to measure performance etc …. his answer was as honest and true as it was short …

I am the designer of the GymAware unit so feel free to ask any questions.
In answer to the original question this comparison between Tendo and GymAware may be of interest.
