Bringing science to the game
Firstbeat Sports lets you put your knowledge to work with confidence. Scientific insights derived from heart rate and heart rate variability data unlock the power of individualized training and recovery guidance.
TRIMP – This popular metric increases according to exertion intensity throughout the session. The harder an athlete works, the faster their TRIMP score grows.
Training Effect: Aerobic – See how a session will impact the development of aerobic performance capacity, measurable in terms of VO2max – Firstbeat White Paper.
EPOC – Measure physical activity in terms of the amount of work the body will perform to restore itself and adapt in preparation for the next challenge – Firstbeat White Paper.
Training Load – Track the total impact of physical activity over the most recent 7-day period.
Energy Expenditure: Oxygen consumption based intensity tracking results in enhanced accuracy for calorie counts – Firstbeat White Paper.
Automatically created individual and group feedback reports provide you with all the information you need about a specific session in one place.
Quick Recovery Test
- Gain valuable insight in just 3 minutes
- Put the science of heart rate variability to work for your team
- Feedback is scaled based on individual measurement history to enhance the meaningfulness of results.
What you can do
- Identify days when extra effort will produce additional rewards.
- See when poor recovery over time is contributing to elevated injury risks
- Evaluate the effectiveness of recovery strategies and interventions
Flexible performance options make collecting recovery data easy.
- Assess individual athletes, groups, or even your entire team at once with the same software and hardware you use to monitor training.
- Athletes can also perform the test on their own with the convenience Firstbeat Sports app on their iPhone and paired Bluetooth heart rate monitor.
Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) /aerobic fitness is a key dimension of performance capacity.
- Automatically detect VO2max during normal runs without the need for maximum exertion and special testing protocols.
- See when aerobic fitness levels are adequate and when there’s room for improvement. Plus, track changes over time.
- Fitness data available from any run recorded using the Firstbeat Sports app and paired Bluetooth heart rate monitor
- Smart algorithms calculate VO2max fitness levels using a combination of movement speed and heartbeat data.
- Non-representative data is automatically detected and excluded from the analysis for enhanced accuracy (95% accurate compared to laboratory assessment)
Firstbeat Premium feature
Cutting-edge analysis of HRV-data recorded with the professional grade Bodyguard 2 devices offers a window through which you can observe activity within the athlete’s autonomic nervous system. Firstbeat White Paper: Accuracy of Firstbeat Bodyguard 2 Heart Rate Monitor
- Take a deeper look and pinpoint activities and routines that promote or interfere with an athlete’s ability to recover.
- Observe how an athlete’s ability to recovery changes over the course of a season.
- Cutting-edge HRV analysis reveals activity with the autonomic nervous system.
- Discover when sympathetic and parasympathetic systems are dominant to what extent – or how intense.
- Examine the restorative quality of an athlete’s sleep
- Gain insight into the effectiveness of recovery strategies for individual players
- Pinpoint problem areas where small changes in behavior or routine can have a big impact for better stress and recovery management
Firstbeat Premium service
