Punch Measure Device
Tracking and analysing performance in training
With a lack of commercial products available to aid those that practise a combat sport in assessing their performance during a training session, this product is designed for those that wish to improve their skills by helping them to track and analyse their performance when training in order to improve by giving accurate force measurements. There are various different settings available; the 'round time' setting for between 10 seconds and five minutes giving an average force for the round or the 'single strike' setting for taking the maximum force of a single strike. All of these measurements are sent to an app on a mobile device so that results can be tracked and improvements can be made. The design allows for adjustability so that different users can comfortably use it whilst consistently taking an accurate reading and will also be easy to disassemble and transport.
