The Torrent E-Rack Swim Power Trainer is the most advanced swim training and performance testing device ever invented.  It 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.

Torrent Overview

The Torrent E-Rack is a pool side resistance/assistance trainer designed to provide researchers a method of studying swimming performance, and swim coaches a simple and reliable method to resist and assist train swimmers, determine the most effective training protocols, and evaluate the progress of a resist or assist trained swimmer. It makes it easy to determine the maximum and minimum speed during a stroke, the number of strokes, strokes per meter, meters per stroke, power in watts per stroke and acceleration with each stroke. When power is plotted against strokes and peak power is plotted against unresisted peak speed it is possible to compare the performance of a swimmer to the performance of the fastest swimmers and help coaches evaluate performance and determine the most appropriate training protocol for improving strength or speed. Individual lap and training session data are easily saved to a word document and also to an Excel file for synchronizing with Dartfish Video Analysis Software (www.dartfish.com) so that complete stroke by stroke analysis can be done. A photo strobe hot shoe is built in for synchronizing data with video.

The Torrent E-Rack consists of a rugged stainless steel enclosure with water proof fittings containing a reel with line that connects to a swimmer, a speed sensor, electronically controlled force generating system, motor, electronic power interface, electronic signal conditioning hardware, electronic flash hot shoe, and Data Acquisition Hardware for interfacing with Torrent Data Acquisition Programs.  Data is automatically displayed on a computer screen, and options are available to store data to a spread sheet for further analysis and record keeping.
