Vertical jump measurements are used primarily in athletic circles to assess muscular strength and anaerobic power.  A running vertical jump refers to a vertical jump after an approach or run to help add energy to the jump in an effort to improve on the standing vertical jump.  To measure an athlete’s power output, Athlometrix uses the most accurate and efficient vertical jump device, comprising a plurality of vertically arranged measuring elements each pivotally mounted (based on United States Patents).
