Torrent Swimming Technology is a platform of devices developed to provide swimmers, coaches and researchers the ultimate suite of tools for evaluating, testing and training swimmers. Developed by Hector Engineering Co. in conjunction with the Counsilman Center for the Science of Swimming, the Torrent E-Rack Swim Power Trainer and the Torrent Speed Analyzer velocity meter are revolutionizing Sprint and Power training and allowing coaches to use data to evaluate swimming technique like never before.
The Torrent E-Rack Swim Power Trainer is the perfect tool to train the neuromotor system with precisely controllable sprint-assist programs, and to increase swimming power via computer moderated resistance training. The E-Rack is the first machine capable of measuring, graphing and displaying, in real time, a swimmer’s Distance, Time, Speed, Power, Thrust, Peak Speed, Peak Power, and Stall Force (maximum thrust) over any distance up to 50 meters.
The Torrent Speed Analyzer velocity meter provides a simple tool to measure Distance, Time, Speed and Acceleration. The Speed Analyzer velocity meter can be used to quantify and evaluate open/free swimming, starts, underwaters, and turn approaches. The graphic output to your computer shows subtle accelerations and decelerations within a single stroke that would otherwise be undetectable. Coupled with underwater video, the system provides the most insightful and revealing view into stroke technique available.
