Hawkin Dynamics Capture

Hawkin Dynamics Capture Android App

Test your athletes easily and efficiently

Our approach is different than other force plate software companies. Hawkin Capture, a native Android application, wirelessly communicates with our force plates. With a simple workflow and minimal interaction – coaches and others can quickly and easily capture jump data, report immediate feedback on a few key parameters for each test, and move forward in their testing program. Users can also manage their database, add and remove athletes, and organize athletes into groups – all within the app.

Efficient

  • Hawkin Capture is built on a simple and clear workflow – select your athlete, select your test – and go.
  • After a test is completed the user can immediately move on to the next athlete, or begin another test.
  • Groups enable filtering of your athlete lists – further enhancing the speed at which you can test a large volume of athletes at a time

User-friendly

  • Designed to be intuitive and simple to any user – no typing or keyboard required
  • Rich visual feedback for each test – including a zoomable graph and key generated metrics are presented clearly immediately after a test is finished
  • Validated thresholds are built in so you can trust that your data is accurate

Protocols included:

Countermovement Jump

Force curve of an athlete performing a Countermovement jump

The CMJ is the standard of jump testing. A repeatable and easy to perform test, the CMJ provides deep insight into athletic ability, and is a great example of a relatively slow stretch-shortening cycle (eccentric-concentric contraction).

Squat Jump

Force curve of an athlete performing a Squat jump

The concentric-only vertical jump gives insight into how an athlete functions without the benefit of an eccentric-loading phase. It’s the countermovement jump without the countermovement.

Drop Jump

Force curve of an athlete performing a Drop jump

A long-time standard test for reactivity, the drop jump requires a fast stretch-shortening cycle and gives insight into an athlete’s elasticity and reactive strength.

Isometric Test

Force curve of an athlete performing an Isometric test

The Isometric test is used for Isometric mid-thigh pull tests, and can be used for any other isometric test where RFD (rate of force development) is of interest. Isometric squats and isometric hamstring tests are easily performed using this protocol.

Coutermovement Rebound

Force curve of an athlete performing a Countermovement Rebound test

The CMJ-Rebound test is a new test that is designed to provide the same data as the countermovement jump and the drop jump in one series of movements. The athlete performs a countermovement jump and upon landing performs a rebound jump.

Repeat Jump

Force curve of an athlete performing a multiple jump test

This test is a simple running RSI test – the athlete jumps repeatedly (there is no limit) and the system calculates RSI (Flight time/contact time) for each individual jump. The results are easy to read and understand.

Free Run

Force curve of an athlete performing a free run test

The free-run testing mode is used for measuring anything that can be measured on a set of forceplates. Peak force, average force, and peak and average asymmetry are all reported after this test is performed.
