Suspension vibratory system by means of rigid braces anchored to a fixed support.

The INSTAVIB project allows the improvement of the performance and neuromuscular response of athletes training in suspension by vibration.

INSTAVIB has developed a wireless laboratory prototype through an app with the mechanical capacity to vibrate loads of more than 100kg at the desired frequencies.

This electronics, which has been validated with users, can measure different parameters to know the effort that the athlete is making. In addition, the system has different security mechanisms.

The project has jointly applied the knowledge of motor mechanisms controlled by state-of-the-art electronics for the management and control of the speed of a brushless motor using a proportional integral derivative (PID) algorithm, which communicates via Bluetooth with the app.

INSTAVIB is based on previous research studies carried out by the University of Blanquerna and the University of Vic, which determine the benefit obtained in the neuromuscular system of an athlete when working in suspension with the combination of the effect of vibration.

The team of engineers and mechanical and electronic designers from Eurecat’s Product Development & Multiphysics Simulation Unit has promoted the design of the equipment, based on the previous simulation carried out by the research team of the same Unit.
