Triple A meter
Advanced Artificial Athlete (Triple A) meter
In the 80’s the first Artificial Athlete meters were designed. There were two versions: the Stuttgart and the Berlin AA meter. Mechanically, both meters were largely identical.
To make measuring the shock absorption of the surface easier, the Triple A Meter has been developed. In addition to shock absorption and vertical deformation, the Triple A Meter also measures the energy restitution.
The Triple A has a fall mechanism with a built-in accelerometer and only uses one spring. During and after the fall, the Triple-A records the acceleration as a function of time. The sensor determines the shock absorption, the vertical deformation and the energy restitution in same fall.
The proprietary software ensures the correct calculations and the wireless ease of operation with the handheld device ensures simple and fast measurements.
