The Optojump Testing System was developed by the Italian company Microgate, and has been sold into the Elite Sports market for over 20 years. It has been continually developing and improved, It now offers a single unit and modular system. Each metre contains 96 Led sensors with a 1cm resolution allowing for an accuracy that is comparable to most laboratory based systems. The system also includes webcams (which provide visual feedback), team reports, comparison reports, image or video-based reports, and user-written test protocols.
The introduction of the new GYKO accelerometry system is a valuable add-on, which allows you to see what’s happening to the athlete’s upper body movement, alongside the traditional lower limb stride and speed measures.
Perform Better have been distributing the Microgate products in the UK since our launch in 2007, and continue to work closely with the manufacturers to ensure the product remains cutting edge and at the forefront of all elite team testing protocols.
Founded by the Queensland University of Technology in 2014, Vald Performance was created to bring laboratory-grade technology to the field.
In 2016, the NordBord Hamstring Testing System (invented by leading sports science researchers Dr. Anthony Shield and Dr. David Opar) was commercially launched. The NordBord has subsequently paved the way to become the gold standard in field-based hamstring testing.
In early 2017, Vald Performance launched its second product, the GroinBar Hip Strength Testing System, and in mid-2017 acquired, developed and launched the HumanTrak Movement Analysis System.
Vald Performance is powered by an international, multidisciplinary team of sports scientists, researchers, clinicians, designers, developers and engineers, all dedicated to improving human measurement.
Witty Timing System was originally developed by Microgate in Italy, the company who also supply the Optojump system. Microgate was founded 1989, and has since grown into a business that provides top-of-the-range sporting equipment for over 30 countries.
The Witty devices were introduced in 2013, to provide a solution to the timing system market, where there was a gap between functional and advanced timing. Witty has combined the simplicity of a standard timing system, with the advanced storage and programmability normally associated with the top of the range devices, all at a very competitive price.
In 2015 Witty added the Witty SEM, movement and reaction system, and the Witty RFID athlete management system to its range, in order to provide a family of products that can either work together or stand alone when met with a trainer’s requirements.
Perform Better have been distributing Optojump and Witty products since our launch in 2007, and enjoy a strong and fruitful relationship with the company.
We have been leading the way in performance strength training for over 12 years – we design and manufacture quality strength equipment at the Leicestershire factory. However, we like to think of ourselves as much more than just an equipment manufacturer, and believe our real strength is in the breadth of service and products we offer.
We’re expanding and developing our product range on an ongoing basis, working with some of the leading Strength and Conditioning Coaches in the UK. New ranges that have been launched recently, include: a new range of Standard Power and Half Racks, a new range of entry level benches, an increased range of flooring options and new storage options.
ForceDecks was founded in 2013 by Dr Daniel Cohen, a sports scientist and Dr Phil Graham-Smith, a bio mechanist – with over 40 years of combined platform testing in Elite Sport.
They developed ForceDecks as a means to turn the slow and complex force platform data analysis process into a simple, quick and intuative one that accommodates the time constraints of Elite Sports.
ForceDecks Software provides instantaneous feedback on neuro-muscular performance and asymmetries for dynamic and isometric tests. ForceDecks unique auto test detection and one click analysis allows data to be collected and processed in under a minute. ForceDecks Software facilitates immediate feedback on large numbers of athletes in a squad setting.
ForceDecks Platforms are used by training, medical and sports science practitioners to monitor, and ultimately improve, the aspects of neuro-muscular performance that underpin the sporting performance of Elite Ahtletes.

The kBox by Exxentric has been designed around the principle of inertial flywheel training. Flywheel training offers a safe yet effective way of training with an emphasis on the eccentric phase of a movement.
Flywheel technology is getting more and more momentum in sports performance as athletes and coaches see the benefits of the Exxentric kBox. Scientists are gathering increasing evidence to support this method of training. The advantages of flywheel training in performance sports include physiological, practical, ergonomic and economic benefits.
1080 Motion is the technology leader in solutions for neuromuscular testing and training in sports and rehabilitation.
The Company’s early work began in 2005 when coach Rolf Öhman and entrepreneur Ole Olsen, later joined by physics engineer Christoffer Bergkvist, began developing a novel idea. The goal was to create a device built on robotics technology that would outperform existing training equipment. This pioneering work eventually resulted in the launch of 1080 Quantum followed by the 1080 Sprint.
The intelligence in the 1080 solutions resides in the software and algorithms designed to train, test and analyse physical factors of performance.
The 1080 products are manufactured in Sweden using state of the art production methods and the chassis are made of high quality steel and aluminium with industrial grade finishing.
Catapult exists to build and improve the performance of athletes and teams at all levels of sport.
Originally formed from a partnership between the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) to maximise the performance of Australian athletes ahead of the Sydney Olympics, Catapult was officially founded in Melbourne in 2006. The wearable technologies developed by Catapult in its early years were designed to address fundamental questions in sports performance. That purpose has remained at the heart of their work as they’ve grown from an Australian startup to a global leader in sports technology. Catapult continues to lead the way in sports science research and innovation and has over 340+ staff across 30 locations, working with more than 2500 teams in 39 sports.
Is a portable resisted sprinting system which uses fly wheels to create the resistance for the athletes. With the ability to gear through 30 levels of resistance, the run rocket can be tailored to any athletes training requirements to get the best improvements in speed, power and agility. In addition to this, the run rocket can be used to resist during plyometric jumping and/or broad jumping. The addition of wheels to the run rocket make it a portable system allowing the system to be used during both indoor and outdoor training session. The system includes a disc loading bar to add mass to the frame ensuring stability and minimal movement during training with athletes of larger proportion. The resistance of the run rocket can be toggled using an adjustment knob, this resistance is represented numerically on the display for ease of repeatability. With a harness of multiple attachment points, the run rocket allows for various pulling points accommodating for various movement patterns of each sport. The tether has a length of 35 meters with an automatic retraction system for ease of function. An athlete can be tethered to more than one Run Rocket to provide lateral resistance or can be used for rotary concentric movements and a large range of other movements.
