Industry News: Vasa’s New High-Tech Swimming Ergometer Goes the Distance Without the Water -- June 23, 2005
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vermont, June 23. VASA, Inc., the manufacturer of the popular Vasa Trainer, has developed a new generation in swim-specific training called the Vasa Ergometer. This high tech swim bench provides swim coaches, swimmers, triathletes, surfers and fitness buffs the tools necessary to develop unmatched aerobic endurance and anaerobic power for swimming.
The Vasa Ergometer is like a “swimming treadmill” featuring a fan flywheel with variable wind resistance that feels just like swimming in water! A “damper door” adjusts airflow to feel like a fast or slow current, allowing athletes to vary their workouts – from light range of motion rehab work, to swim-set simulations, to race intensity simulations, to maximum power intervals.
An electronic monitor provides instant feedback on performance, which is ideal for race
simulations, intervals and repeatable performance testing and training. The monitor’s patented force measuring system ensures accurate and reliable measurements over time and on multiple Vasa Ergometers.
