HIGH-END TRAINING: the Swimming Flume

Technological progress is becoming more common in sports and the development of modern sports equipment. But the most complex sports equipment is and remains the athlete himself. To optimize his skills, there is a wealth of performance measurement and optimization tools to capture as many parameters as possible in service delivery.

In a counter-current pool, it is possible to generate exact flow velocities and make conditions completely repeatable and reproducible. Unlike in the pelvis, and comparable to a treadmill, the athlete is given a uniform speed. This allows, on the one hand, precise control of the swimming speed, but forces the athlete on a given speed.

SWIMMING ON THE SPOT

Besides the two outdoor pools, Tenerife Top Training also possesses a high-end counter-current pool with a maximum speed of 2.5m/s. Analysis and evaluation of the swimming technique can be conducted through a 3D video recording, which is equally attractive to elite and amateur athletes.
