The Trigger Trainer is a tool for biathletes and shooters in order to train their triggering behaviour. With a few clicks the athlete can train one of the most important variables concerning shooting technique. The sensor can be fixed on the stock easily and the results including graphs can be displayed and saved with a special app (download via Google Play Store). The Trigger Trainer is small, robust and cheap.
Dr. Gerold Sattlecker:
"Aim of the trigger trainer is an uncomplicated training of the triggering behavior.
The wireless system can be also used in a competition simulating training."
A small and robust amplifier box sends the signal via Bluetooth to the device (phone, tablet, etc.). The amplifier can be fixed on the stock via a strap. The box is connected with the trigger sensor via a 30cm long cable. The trigger sensor is 1 mm thick and has approximately the size of an average trigger. It can be fixed with a tape on the trigger.
The trigger-trainer app displays the measured force signal of the trigger finger in clear graphs. Initially a zero measurement and a measurement of the trigger force while pulling the trigger have to be accomplished in order to calibrate the system – see commissioning. You can save all the data and create a PDF report. You can download the trigger-trainer app on trigger-trainer.com/downloads.
In the report the trigger work is illustrated via graphs and tables. The average values at the different points of time (1, 0,6 and 0,3 sec before firing and 0,2 sec after pulling the trigger, respectively) give you feedback about your triggering behavior. In a second graph all trigger curves are displayed one above the other. Furthermore, several shooting clips can be shown in one single table.
