The World’s First Running & Cycling Footbed Power Meter
MedHab is pleased to bring you RPM², a revolutionary technology aimed at making athletes better, stronger, and faster! Helping athletes achieve higher performance through symmetry is what RPM² technology is all about. Coaches and trainers recognize that the more bilaterally equivalent the legs are, the better the athlete will perform. With this in mind, we developed RPM².
Measures Bilateral Equivalence as well as Gait, and Cycling Mechanics
To help athletes achieve symmetry, RPM² measures bilateral equivalence, as well as the mechanics of gait, and cycling.. In essence, RPM² is three devices in one and is very reasonably priced. RPM² is pre-set with six “range of motion” exercises, seven “gait” exercises, two “force distribution” exercises, as well as four cycling exercises. The pre-set exercises are designed to provide accurate information with regard to bilateral equivalence. Based on the measurements provided by RPM², coaches and athletes can adjust training regimens and techniques to achieve higher performance.
The first and only true Running Power Meter in the world
RPM² is also the first and only TRUE running power meter in the world and streams real-time power during the run. Without force, power cannot accurately be calculated. RPM² calculates force directly from the footbed, resulting in objective measurements.
The first and only Footbed Cycling Power Meter in the world
RPM² is the first and only footbed cycling power meter in the world and measures both right and left leg power, as well as collective power. RPM² also measures force when cycling. In the same manner as with gait, the cycling application divides the ride into separate measurement points. Additionally, RPM² can determine if the foot, while on the bike peddle, is pronating or supinating, which could lead to more pressure on the anterior or medial compartment of the knee.
Measures Bilateral Range of Motion
RPM² also measures bilateral range of motion. As previously mentioned, this is done through six pre-set exercises, where range of motion screen shots clearly shows bilateral equivalence of athletes allowing the coach or athlete to make adjustments in strength and conditioning exercises to correct any bilateral equivalence issues.
Measures Standing Pressure in Real-Time
Force distribution is also an important aspect of athletic performance. RPM² measures half squat and standing pressure in real-time. These exercises clearly show if one leg is favored over the other, an event which can lead to performance issues. Additionally, RPM² measures four quadrants of the foot, displaying if the athlete is pronating, is supinating, is on the balls of the feet, or is behind the ankle, each leading to potential performance issues.
