Load, Explode and Drive are the three main variables measured during the jump scan and represent one's ability to Create, Transfer and Apply force in dynamic movements.
Load, Explode, and Drive are the three main variables measured during the Jump Scan and represent an individual's ability to Create, Transfer, and Apply force efficiently. These three phases occur in all human movements. The more effectively each individual is able to utilize these different phases, the more efficient their movement is.
- Load is a measure of how much force and how quickly this force is created. It is measured during the downward phase of the jump.
- Explode is a measure of how much force and how efficiently that force is transferred. It is measured through the transitional phase of the jump.
- Drive is a measure of how much force and how long that force is applied. It is measured during the upward phase of the jump.
Collectively, Load, Explode, and Drive create an individual's Jump Signature, which is the visual representation of their unique dynamic movement strategy. Load, Explode, and Drive combine into an individual's Sparta Score, which is a single measure of relative movement efficiency.
Load, Explode, and Drive are normalized and presented to users in the form of population-relative scores where a score of 50 is average and typical scores range between 40 and 60.
