    BIOMECHANICS

    The key goals of our biomechanics provision are to improve comfort and mechanical effectiveness, and ultimately to increase sustainable muscle power delivered to the pedal. We look at how the body and bike interact, and how we can change position and technique to achieve these goals, using an evidence-based approach. If you want to make sure that you optimise your capabilities on the bike, our BikeFit products are essential.

    HOW WE ACHIEVE THIS

    Our highly trained, knowledgeable and experienced staff use a wide array of market-leading technology as tools to evaluate your needs and administer effective interventions. The tools we use include the Bioracer 3D Motion Analysis system to record and analyse your position offering unique insight into the way you move. Saddle and foot pressure is assessed using Gebiomized pressure mapping systems provide us with the capability to address pain and discomfort in those areas. Forped 6-axis instrumented pedals are used to measure Mechanical Efficiency, assess pedalling technique and optimise cleat position to reduce unwanted lateral pedal forces that cause ineffective pedalling and contribute to joint pain and other injuries. We use Sidas heat cured custom insoles to improve foot posture to assist effective pedalling and improve comfort. Wattbikes’ adapted fitting bike is used to provide a robust and highly adjustable platform to easily adjust positions and provide accurate real-time feedback on the effects of new positions.
