Halo Sport improves jump force and technique of Olympic ski jumpers

The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA) is the national governing body of Olympic skiing and snowboarding.

USSA is the parent organization of the US Ski Team and US Snowboarding Team. USSA annually trains over 30,000 athletes, including Olympic champions Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn.

Skill

All movement is learned in the brain

Playing piano, squatting a barbell, and running a marathon look different — but your brain learns each of these movements the same way. While the pathways in the brain that produce each movement differ, they're all created through repetition and plasticity.

The Challenge

Ski jump training requires maximizing the value of each run.

Because of time limitations (i.e. chair rides, setup time, unpredictable weather) and high risk of injury (i.e. speeds exceeding 100m per second), ski jump training is designed to get the most out of the fewest number of sessions.

Hyperplasticity

How Halo Sport works

 

Halo Sport delivers a small electric signal to the area of the brain that controls movement, temporarily increasing plasticity. That means your brain can develop and strengthen pathways faster.

The Partnership

Halo Sport optimizes Olympic ski jump training.

In order to improve training efficiency and accelerate skill acquisition, Neuropriming™ was paired with a training program focused on improving the power and smoothness of athletes' jumps.

As ski jumpers learn to maximize efficient energy transfer, their propulsive force increases and entropy decreases during the jumping motion.

The Results

Athletes using Halo Sport saw 13% additional gains in propulsion force and 11% additional gains in jump smoothness after just 4 weeks.

As a result, the athletes using Halo Sport improved 45% faster than the control.

“With Halo Sport, we want to maximize the value of each session that we do on snow and reduce athletes' exposure to injury by accelerating the time to acquire skills in what can often be risky environments.”
