Quattro Jump with Unique Performance Diagnostics Software

Winterthur, 15 September 2015 – The portable force measurement system Kistler Quattro Jump now supports the proprietary performance diagnostics software Kistler MARS. The software, which has been specially developed for Quattro Jump, enables the analysis and evaluation of performance and force for vertical jumps. The eight pre-defined analysis modules make it possible to evaluate measurements in just a few seconds and to display all relevant performance parameters at a glance. Kistler has thus expanded the tried and tested force plate into an integrated, attractively priced performance diagnostics system, making broad application in fitness clubs, performance centers and rehabilitation centers possible. Kistler Quattro Jump with MARS is available as from now.

Quattro Jump with Kistler MARS 2.1
In June, Kistler presented an extensive update of the proprietary Kistler MARS 2.1 Measurement, Analysis and Reporting Software for Kistler force plates. The software is now also supported by Kistler Quattro Jump. The portable force measurement system provides numerous innovations for performance diagnostics in sport and rehabilitation, for example, in the evaluation of drop jumps. ‘Our goal is to make piezoelectric measurement technology, which is outstanding because of its great robustness and accuracy, available to a broad group of users,’ says Florian Ullrich, manager of Kistler’s Biomechanics Business Field. ‘With Kistler MARS, Quattro Jump is now an integrated, attractively priced performance diagnostic system which can be used in many situations where, up until now, high-end technology was prohibitive simply because of the cost.’ 

Versatile Application in Performance Sports and Rehabilitation
Quattro Jump with Kistler MARS is targeted for performance coaches, team physiotherapists as well as fitness and rehab trainers who need to objectively determine the exact condition of their athletes. The portable force measurement system delivers a quick overview of all the relevant performance parameters of the legs. This makes it possible, for instance, to specifically control particular training or regeneration phases so that individual development phases can be reached more quickly. With a USB interface, which replaces the serial interface used up until now, Quattro Jump can be connected more easily than ever.

Eight Predefined Analysis Modules
The focus of the eight predefined analysis modules (i.e. Counter Movement Jump or Stamping) is on the analysis of force and endurance. The software delivers all relevant performance parameters within just a few seconds. This helps athletes train to their optimal level and avoid injury. Frequent and efficient performance tests give coaches and physiotherapists a good overview of the current performance capability of their athletes.

Easy Output of Desired Performance Parameters
The input parameters and data acquisition setup can be edited for each test separately. Data from projects, test persons and measurements are edited, structured and saved to a database using the management tool. Here, they are available for comparisons and reports. Extensive information and examples can be found in the Kistler MARS software help while online video trainings are available from the support website.

Collaboration with Leading Institutions in Biomechanics
The Windows-based software Kistler MARS has been developed in close collaboration with leading international institutions for biomechanics and extensively tested in practice using Quattro Jump. Kistler MARS for Quattro Jump is also available as a software upgrade for older Kistler Quattro Jump systems with USB (Type 9290BD).
