The Challenge:

To monitor the frequency and magnitude of punches thrown by a boxer or kicks from a kick-boxer or mixed martial arts practitioner:

  • What is the number of punches orkicks per minute?
  • At what number of punches does the trainee become fatigued? (use this to monitor endurance improvements over time)
  • With what force is the trainee punching?
  • Peak and Average Punch Forces for the round
  • Rounds timer
  • Log data to a comma separated file for later analysis in Excel

How it works:

This boxing setup has a force plate attached to a stand or installed onto a rigid wall.  As the punches are thrown by the boxer, the impact force is apllied onto our force sensor which is then communicated back to a PC via the USB port. 

The software counts the number and amount of the perturbation from zero and displays this information to the boxer on a monitor.  This allows the user to monitor punches per minute, max. force of his or her punches, and endurance over time.
