Vaaka cadence sensors
Are lightweight, wireless, electronic sensors that provide real-time stroke rate feedback to athletes and coaches for kayaking, canoeing, outrigger paddling, dragonboating, stand up paddle boarding and rowing . Vaaka cadence sensors send stroke rate data wirelessly for display on compatible GPS devices. Athletes can now see their stroke rate in real-time while on the water, removing the guesswork from training. Stroke rate data is displayed on the compatible GPS device and logged alongside the GPS data, time, speed, heartrate and distance allowing more specific feedback during training and easy access to post training analysis of cadence and distance per stroke on our Vaaka Analytics software.
“You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” (Deming)
Because boat speed is a product of stroke rate and distance per stroke these are the two most important metrics to measure and manage for improved performance. Vaaka sensors allow athletes and coaches to see stroke rate data during training and the Vaaka Analytics software will automatically calculate distance per stroke for post training analysis making it possible to measure and monitor incremental improvements in performance.
