The Value of the Sparta Science Force Plate Scan

The Sparta Science Force Plates are Back at POW! GYM the Home of the Parisi Speed School of Chicago!

The Sparta Science force plates are available all of December (2022) for athletes and fitness clients.  In order to receive a scan, you must prebook and register.  The scans allows us to optimize health and performance for athletes and fitness clients.  These scan process is fast between 5-10 minutes in length. 

Sparta Scans use force plate hardware and AI, as well as machine learning software to provide the most insightful look at an athlete's injury resilience.  It will also provide data-driven exercise prescriptions that increase resilience, minimize injury risk and speed efficient rehabilitation to physical activity. The exercise prescription and data is powered by a database of nearly one million scans and thousands of injuries from tens of thousands of people to assess movement health and injury risk in seconds.

The scan will have an athlete perform a series of jump squats, single leg balances and a plank. All of which are done on the force plate. The balance and plank scans are used to measure an individual’s ability to statically stabilize on a single limb. The Balance Scan can determine the possibility of sustaining a leg injury.  The Plank Scan measures your core’s ability to control your body from side to side and top to bottom and can identify the risk of sustaining neck, core, back, and shoulder injuries.

The Jump Scan is used to characterize an individual’s dynamic movement strategy which relates to how they complete any movement. Whether climbing the stairs, running, coming off the rim, cutting and breaking on the field, landing from a jump or lifting a box.  It is a holistic movement that demonstrates how efficiently each individual creates, transfers, and applies force. 
These results can be used to screen for potential injury risk and provide objective measures of progress throughout training for healthy individuals, as well as through rehabilitation. They also used to identify or classify individuals for a particular position or skill and to assess individual or group readiness for activity.
