This system gathers data and provides real-time and post-session feedback to athletes on aspects of their technique by measuring and analysing the kinetics of their performance. The motion of the ergometer handle, both relative to the erg and the seat are used along with the forces applied through the handle and each foot. Ideal performances can be programmed in and a score of similarity between this and a current performance is calculated every stroke to motivate consistency in the athlete's technique.

The data collected is also used to evaluate analysis algorithms to provide more sophisticated feedback to athletes.
