Balance, balance & balance!

Archers need to stand up straight and keep their posture in an upright position during extension and aiming. Moving slowly backwards trying to extend through the clicker, or slowly falling forwards or backwards are an often seen mistake.

And even with perfect form it is sometimes difficult to stay upright, when wind gusts are pushinig on the arhers body and equipement. All these movements affects your accuracy as an archer.

Archers use visual, proprioceptic (feeling) and vestibular feedback-loops to control their inherent unstable position. But how to effectively train these? You need a system that measures even the smallest movemenmt and gives direct feedback; the Archers Balance Trainer system.

About Archery Balance Trainer

The archer straps on the Wiimote on their upper-bow-arm and stand on a Nintendo Balance board. When performing their shooting routine, the system measures and shows any movement of the center-of-gravity of the athlete. The coach can set a target and the system will sound an alert (or start vibrating) when the archer moves out of that target.

  • Audio and rumble feedback provided by the system.
  • Practice keeping and correcting stance.
  • Train your muscles and central nervous system to quickly and efficiently detect and react to external disturbances like wind and wind gusts.
  • Check the consistency of your shooting form, by comparing the center-of-gravity movements from one shot to the other.
