We are currently delivering performance benchmarks, progress tracking and insights in the HELIOS™ App for the following metrics for each practice or game session completed:

These metrics are automatically monitored and calculated by the Helios Core™ device during the session when the athlete is skating (taking strides). The Core uses Helios' Stride Recognition Technology™ (SRT) to understand when the player is and is not actively skating which gives us powerful context for delivering performance results to Helios™ app.

Below highlights how the metrics show up in the app for an individual session (game, in this case) and explains details for each metric.

  • Stride Speed - the skating speed of the player in units of Miles Per Hour [MPH].
  • Agility - the rate of stride or foot speed of the skating player in units of Strides Per Minute [SPM].
  • Explosiveness - a measure of 'how quickly' the skating player gets going (e.g. think thrust/propulsion of the first strides) in units of g-force [g].
  • Balance - a ratio of Left and Right stride outputs across a session (e.g. what % of strides were Left vs. Right).
  • Stride Load - a count of strides for a given session in units of Strides [strides].
  • Active Time - the time actively spent skating in units of minutes [min].
  • Hustle Score - an intensity rating of this specific practice or game session compared to your typical practice or game session. Rated as Low (LOW), Average (AVG), High (HIGH).
  • Points - a number of points calculated from participation and individual performance against your individual baseline.
  • Heart Rate - the average heart rate in beats per minute [bpm]. *when a compatible heart rate chest strap is used.
