About Leomo Type-R:
The Leomo Type-R has five small motion sensors that are placed at the sacrum, feet and lower thighs. Each sensor has three axis gyroscopes and accelerometers to capture the rider’s movement to provide a complete numerical data in real time on a head unit display during a ride as well as for post analysis on the website after the training. Type-R was specifically designed to help athletes and their coaches to optimize athlete’s posture, performance and efficiency, as well as potential injury avoidance and recovery.
