First released in 1998 and continually refined and updated, the Ballistic Measurement System (BMS) is a sophisticated software and hardware solution for monitoring training, assessing rehabilitation, providing feedback during rehabilitation and training, and state-of-the-art assessment of human performance. The system comprises a force platform and/or cable-extension potentiometer (distance transducer), USB data collection interface, and custom software to accurately measure the vertical movement of the athlete, barbells, or weight machines. Velocity, acceleration, force, impulse and power can then be measured or derived. The program can also analyze the data collected to display force, impulse, power, velocity, jump height, rate of force development for a total of 58 different parameters currently available. Based on the latest research and requests from practitioners we are constantly adding new measurement parameters.
