What is Impact Load?
Impact Load is the sum of the intensities created from every impact measured at the lower limbs during an IMU Step session. Total Impact Load is the sum of the left and right limb Impact Loads
Impact Load is comparable within and between sessions, allowing you to examine the loading outcomes of specific activities, drills, sessions, and training days - and their respective effects on an athlete’s workload.
As an example, if an athlete took 500 steps at 1g, 1000 steps at 2g and 2000 steps at 3g, the Impact Load calculation would look like so:
Impact Load = (500 x 1g) + (1000 x 2g) + (2000 x 3g) = 8500 (8.5k)
