Coaches – Imagine having the power to see every critical aspect of your athletes’ rowing presented as simple, instantly understandable numbers. Now imagine achieving that with no wires, and an installation you can easily accomplish before your next practice. Simply replace your normal oarlocks with EmPower Oarlocks using tools you already own and perform a quick one-time setup and calibration routine. The EmPower Oarlock converts hundreds of precise strain gauge and angle measurements into per-stroke measurements of catch and finish angles, slip, wash, effective length, force, peak force, work and power and displays your choice of measurements on a paired SpeedCoach GPS. You can use the SpeedCoach GPS in your launch for real-time view (range 100-150 feet/30-45 meters) or hand it off to your athlete for self-coaching to your defined targets.
Rowers – Imagine having the power to know EXACTLY what “less layback” or “quicker catch” really means. Have the confidence to implement your coach’s guidance, making much faster improvement towards your goals. Self-coached athletes, get immediate insight into which changes really resulted in better boat speed and sustainable efficiency, then imprint those changes through consistent rowing.
