Heart Rate Telemetry
Ride Inside is the only facility to be operating this software for cyclists in Australia and the results that it has given our cyclists at any level, from weight loss to elite level is amazing.
Firstbeat Technologies Ltd. has developed a revolutionary analysis technology that provides comprehensive information about various functions and states of the human body on the basis of heartbeat measurement.
The heart can provide a vast amount of information about our body because heart rate is constantly adjusting, from beat to beat, to meet the demands of our everyday life. For this reason, heart rate is never constant - the time difference between two consecutive heartbeats changes from beat to beat. This variation is called heart rate variability, HRV.
Firstbeat's analysis technology is based on recognition of different bodily reactions from heart rate and heart rate variability. For example, the following essential bodily functions affect the heartbeat:
The solution can be compared to a graphics engine that performs calculations on the basis of Newtonian physics: Starting from heartbeat data, the Firstbeat engine computes and creates a digital model of the human body by performing realistic calculations about bodily states according to general physiological principles of the body's functions
