OptoJump Next is an optical measurement system consisting of a transmitting and receiving bar.

Each of these contains 96 leds (1.0416cm resolution).
The leds on the transmitting bar communicate continuously with those on the receiving bar. The system detects any interruptions in communication between the bars and calculates their duration.

This makes it possible to measure flight and contact times during the performance of a series of jumps with an accuracy of 1/1000 of a second. Starting from these fundamental basic data, the dedicated software makes it possible to obtain a series of parameters connected to the athlete’s performance with the maximum accuracy and in real time.

The absence of moving mechanical parts ensures accuracy and great reliability. 

Quantity and Quality

Optojump Next goes beyond the acquisition of numerical data: thanks to small cameras that can be positioned as desired, it allows recording of the images of the tests performed, synchronising them perfectly with the events measured. This makes it possible to enjoy the advantages of cross-checking between data and images and also those deriving from more detailed video analysis through the exploitation of the possibilities offered by the dedicated utility.

The film sequences and all the other data are saved in the database. This makes it possible to consult them at any moment and, as with numerical data, to make comparisons between the performances of different athletes or of the same athlete at different moments.

The single meter

In this configuration OptoJump Next makes it possible to perform jump tests, reaction tests and running tests (if mounted on a treadmill). The data that can be obtained are:

  • contact times
  • flight times
  • reaction time to a sound/visual impulse
  • elevation of centre of gravity
  • specific power (W/Kg)
  • frequency 
  • energy expended (J)

Thanks to these data and video analysis, the operator quickly evaluates the athlete’s explosive and elastic force and tolerance of different kinds of effort, and his/her posture and technique. Moreover, the possibility of performing reaction tests, configuring them freely, makes it possible to compare the results of tests performed in normal situations with those obtained under stress.

In addition, if mounted on a treadmill, Optojump Next also generates the data typical of the analysis of a run, also those of a long one (for example, step length).

The single meter can be powered by both battery (about 8 hours’ autonomous use) and from the mains.


The modular system

In its modular configuration, Optojump Next makes it possible to analyze a walk, a run or particular specific movements. The CPU works in real time, making it possible to assess complex exercises like shuttle tests.

As well as the data of the “single meter” configuration, the modular configuration makes it possible to measure:

  • step length 
  • exact and average acceleration
  • exact and average speed
    stride angle (the angle between the theoretical arc traced by the centre of gravity during the step and the line of the ground)
  • the imbalance index (calculated on the basis of the difference between real contact time and ideal contact time)
  • the time taken (calculable also with the help of external sensors such as photocells)
  • treading mode (heel or toe)

Thanks to the practical and innovative system of joining bars with the dedicated connecting plugs, the modular system can be assembled in just a few minutes. It does not need connection cables or an external power supply and it can be from 2 to 100 metres long.
