High-Performance testing

Why is athletic testing important?

High-Performance Athletic testing is essential to an athlete’s journey at Saltus Performance. Regular monitoring of physical fitness and sport-specific performance is crucial in increasing the likelihood of success in competition.

It allows a coach to build the athlete profile and better understand where an athlete’s strengths and weaknesses lie, what to focus on in the short and long-term training plans and where they stand compared to key performance indicators. It also provides feedback on how an athlete has progressed throughout training.

High-Performance Athletic Testing starts with the advancements in technology, such as timing gates & force platforms. Using these technologies and scientific studies, researchers have been able to develop multiple athletic profiles. These profiles include characteristics such as necessary strength, power, acceleration, change of direction, and energy demands.

Our coaches can review baseline measurements and assess where an athlete’s strengths & weaknesses are. Then, after your high-performance athletic testing, you can have a custom-designed training program that will drive success on your field or court.

Our comprehensive performance testing protocols assess key performance indicators of sport, an athlete’s ability to accelerate, change direction, maximal power and force-producing capabilities. 

10-Metre Sprint

A measure of acceleration and change of velocity over 10m.

30-Metre Sprint

A measure of acceleration into max velocity.

5-0-5 Change of Direction

Measurement of how an athlete can change direction through a 180-degree turn on their left and ride side.

Countermovement jump

A measure of explosive power and utilizing stretch-shortening cycle.

Squat Jump

A measure of explosive power, assessing primarily concentric qualities.

Elastic Utilisation Ratio

The difference between CMJ height and Squat Jump height.

Reactive Strength Index

Identifies your efficiency in storing and releasing energy through the lower limbs.

isometric mid thigh pull

A maximal isometric strength test measuring how much force the lower body can produce.  

Dynamic Strength Index

A comparison of your maximal force production and ballistic force production.

FORCEDECKS DUAL FORCE PLATE SYSTEM - Performance Testing

ForceDecks Dual Force Plate System

The Force Decks measure, train and monitor strength with ForceDecks. It is the world’s fastest, easiest and most powerful dual plate system for analyzing neuromuscular strength and imbalance. In addition, Force Decks provide auto-analyzed results in real-time.

SMARTSPEED TIMING GATE SYSTEM - Performance Testing

SmartSpeed Timing Gate System

This timing gate system is an accurate and reliable laser timing gate for a range of speed and agility tests. More reliable than Dual Beam systems, which can register false triggers, SmartSpeed technology uses Single Beam with Error Correction Processing (ECP). It is integrated with the SmartSpeed app which scans your gates for a straightforward setup that allows you to run training sessions effortlessly.
