Bike Fit Education Centre

Here at Physiohaüs we aim to offer the highest level of bike fit training and education available. After being heavily involved with the development of Retül University 3D motion capture technology from 2010 to 2016, we now offer courses appropriate for any level of fitter from novice to expert and can incorporate fit principles regardless of the technology you use.

There are several motion capture systems available now, but fitting principles are the same and should be led by a skilled fitter utilizing their chosen tool.


The instructors and fitters at Physiohaüs are some of the most experienced in the world.

In autumn 2016 we introduced a new ISCO bike fitting course dealing with analysis and optimization of contact points between rider and bike. The two-day course covers theoretical and practical work and is mainly targeted at experienced bike fitters who ideally already participated in a Level 1 BASIC course and gained practical experience.

Focus:

  • Detailed analysis of contact points between rider and bike
  • Optimization of contact points between rider and bike

Contents:

  • Basics of pressure mapping as measuring technology in bike fitting
  • Asymmetries in riding position
  • Objective assessment of stability off and on the bike
  • Analysis and optimization of the contact point “saddle“
  • Interventions und optimization potential at various contact points
  • Optimization of foot-pedal interface by means of pressure- and force measurement
  • Analysis of pedaling technique by means of force curves
  • Detailed case studies incl. before/after comparison

The course is targeted at

  • (experienced) Bikefitters
  • Bike retailers or employees of specialist bike dealers (ideally with Level 1 BASIC course)
  • Sports scientists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Orthopedic(shoe)technicians
