Stretcher Force Sensor

Visualise leg drive balance and stability

The PowerLine stretcher force sensor provides a multi-axis measurement of forces applied to the stretcher board.

The sensor provides:

  • horizontal and vertical force in Kgf
  • Right/left balance in mm
  • Top/bottom balance in mm

The data answers many questions, such as:

  • how much is the rower checking the boat?
  • how stable is the athlete's balance?
  • does the athlete stay connected through their feet at the release?

The sensor uses strain gauge technology and is supplied in a rugged, completely waterproof enclosure. It is designed to be a drop-in replacement for "standard" rigs with three points of attachment. Custom fittings can be devised for more proprietary attachment points, typically found in singles.
