VALD FORCEDECK ASSESSMENT

Cutting Edge Technology

Our clinic offers ForceDecks, a dual force plate system for analysing strength and imbalance.

With ForceDecks we are able to measure and assess your strength, side-to-side differences and movement through a range of exercises and jumps. Previously limited to elite sporting teams including many of those in the NBA, NFL and EPL, Breathe Physio & Pilates has invested in this technology to make it available to you.

 

Once your assessment is complete, the system will generate a report of how your body moves and we will use this information to work with you to track progress, design strength and conditioning programs to reach your goals: whether that be pain-free, performance, return-to-sport or your daily activities. 

We're also able to compare your data to that of people in your similar age group, gender and athletic abilities. This will give you a goalpost and help to achieve your rehab or injury prevention goals.

See a sample of the results report here (this is what we send you after your tests so you can compare your results over time).

Measure key performance indicators, muscle imbalance and injury rehab progress

How does ForceDeck work?

ForceDecks gather a complete assessment of strength and power as well as the movements you need to perform in daily activities or sport, including squats, lunges, deadlifts, jumps, hops, push-ups, and more.

 

See your results instantly captured and analysed to allow your practitioner to gather objective data to make decisions for your performance or rehab program.

Who can benefit from ForceDecks analysis?

  • People with injuries pre-op and post-op.

  • Athletes looking to improve their strength and prevent injuries.

  • Exercise plan for older individuals to improve balance and strength and prevent falls.

 

How long does it take?

Depending on the tests, it can take between 15 and 30 minutes.

 

Is this only for assessments?

No, this can also be very useful for rehabilitation and training.

Measure and see:

Performance profiling

  • how quickly do you create force?

  • are you powerful or strong or both?

 

Fatigue and readiness monitoring

  • compare your fatigue levels from week to week

  • are you ready to perform at your best?

 

Training and rehab progression

  • compare yourself to your numbers when you were at full fitness and pain-free

 

Some of the tests include:

  • Countermovement jump: measures your max jump height and how explosive you are. Also measures any side-to-side differences.
     

  • Squat jump: measures your max jump height, how fast you produce force when jumping and any side-to-side differences.
     

  • Drop jump: measures your max jump height, how well your body can absorb, load and produce force, and any side-to-side differences.
