The Smart Paddles (SM) measure the pulling forces applied by both hands during your swim. The forces derived from the paddles determine the amount of propulsion (pushing backward), lift (pushing downward) and lateral forces (in sweep or out sweep) for each pull. The Smart Paddles will help us determine how well you are holding water during your pull, or if you are losing force for whatever reason. We will be able to compare your hand force with other swimmers of your approximate age and gender. We will be able to determine whether you are pulling better or more efficiently with one arm than the other. Smart Paddle testing will help you become a better swimmer.
