Brand new product which simulates the motion stereotype of paddle sport for test and training.
The company WEBA has developed a brand new product which gives recreational and top-athletes the best oppotunity to simulate the motion stereotype of paddle sport. The complexity of the smooth and gentle motions increases the muscles strength and flexibility of the upper body.
It also offers the optimal cardio vascular training. The unlimited range of resistance is given through air displacement turbine which simulates water fluid dynamics. This break system allows the using of the Kayak ergometer independent from age or fitness-level. The load is regulated by the pulling effort. There is additional mechanism for regulation of the fly whill drag. The working position is adjustable for all body height.
The Kayak ergometer is quality engineered using the heavy duty component. This ergometer could be disassembled in two parts for convenient transportation or storage.
The KAYAK ERGO is an optimal and cost effective training machine provided with electronic unit PERFORMANCE MONITOR for monitoring time, stroke rate, force and power. Performance monitor take signals from strain gages sensors for accurate measuring of force and power.
Here the list with the functions of the different modells:
|Stroke rate (spm)||x||?||?|
|Power per Stroke||x||?||?|
|Pace 200m /500m /1000m||x||?||?|
|Internal memory (session recall)||x||?||?|
|Average stroke length||x||x||?|
|Force vs. Time graph (left and right)||x||x||?|
|Stroke length (left and right)||x||x||?|
|Programmable workout (Standard, Last workout, RePaddle or Custom workout)||x||x||?|
|Connection to Personal Computer (PC)||x||x||?|
|Weba Expert Software for Analysis||x||x||?|
The BASIC model is designed for practicing paddling technics and for this reason, this model doesn't have any measuring equipement.
The STANDARD model is equipped with limited measurment sensors and to measure basic parameters.
The SCIENCE model is the most advanced and completed machine. This model is capable to be connected to a PC and transfered the stored trainings session for further analysis through WEBA Expert Software.
The Display Device is designed to be menu driven and self-explanatory. Via the menu system its also possible to adjust all the parameters, to switch data recording on/off, to choose the desired display during the work and to transfer the recorded data to a PC for further analysis in an easy and simple way using the EXPERT software package.
When the device is connected to a PC, it is possible to do the software adjustments, to memorize and to follow the complete work on the Kayak Ergo in the Real-time mode.
Using only 4 buttons (ENTER, ESCAPE, UP, DOWN) it is possible to perform all the Display Device functions. It makes working with the device easy and simple.
Display Device Main Characteristics
- Graphic display
- Rechargeable battery with about 15 hours of authonomy
- After switching ON, the last screen settings appear
- Navigate the functions using menus
- Display options including graphical or numerical data
- Time, stroke rate, power, work, force, heart rate
- Choose from a variety of units - power (W) or force (N) - to be displayed with bigger fonts in the middle of the display. Switch between the units during a workout using UP/DOWN buttons
- Pre-programming the workouts with time, rest time and numbers of intervals
- Store workout data on the board memory or just work without recording
- Recall function
- Memory status
- Battery status
- PC COM interface (USB)
- Real-time monitoring on the perfomance monitor or PC
- The accuracy control or calibration is possible at any time with PC
Display Device Modes
Two modes for presentation of the measured and calculated parameters are available:
- Text mode
- Graphic mode
In text mode, it is possible to monitor five parameters at the same time.
Time, Cadence and Heart Rate are standard fields that are presented in all text modes. Main and Average field could be switched to different views pressing UP and DOWN buttons.
The following views are avaliable: Power [W], Length [cm], Speed [m/s], Estimated /500m [MM:SS], Pace /200m [MM:SS], Graph mode.
While in graph mode you can monitor the following paramaters:
KAYAK ERGO is supported by two seperate sofware packages, both of which enable you to further explore and analyse your training by connecting your display device to a PC. To find out more about Weba Software, click on the link below.
