Tendo Unit, unit that is changing training forever

TENDO FitroDyne, TENDO Power & Speed Analyzer, TENDO Weightlifting Analyzer and new Tendo Power Analyzer have been used for the measurement of speed of bar movement and Power Output for 14 years in leading sports facilities in 45 countries.

Tendo Power Analyzers are portable training tools. They are an easy way to determine power output and bar speed in training and testing.

Tendo Power Analyzer measures:

• Average power
• Partial average power
• Peak power
• Average velocity
• Peak velocity
• Peak Force
• Eccentric average velocity
• Rest time between reps or sets


Tendo Power Analyzer microcomputer gives

• Power, force and velocity measurements
• Percentage of best power, force and velocity
• Number of repetition
• Adjustable limits of audio signals
• Memory for 500 reps
• Wireless Tendo Bluetooth connection to the computer
• Built-in Battery Charger

Durable Sensor Units with 2.8 meters range of motion.

The microcomputer unit is now equipped with neodymium magnet for quick attachment to the rack or tripod. Just place the microcomputer unit on desirable place on metal rack or on metal plate of the tripod.


Tendo Power Analyzer package includes:

• Microcomputer
• Sensor Unit
• Data Cable
• Tripod
• Rechargeable Batteries
• Built-in Battery Charger
• Manual
• Carrying Bag

Tendo Power Analyzer and Tendo Power Analyzer-WL differences:

The Tendo Power Analyzer as well as Power Analyzer-WL unit utilize the same microcomputer unit, so they give the same measurement.
The Units use different Sensor Units. The Sensor Unit for the Power Analyzer-WL version is more durable and more suitable for Olympic lift exercises, because of the sensor protection against dropping barbell.
The Tendo Power Analyzer-WL unit is also more versatile for testing and training. There is also a possibility to attach string of the sensor unit on a special waist belt for measurement of power and velocity for legs and eliminate positive influence of the back extension.
The Sensor Unit for Power Analyzer is smaller than the sensor unit for WL version.

Tendo Power Analyzer and Tendo Power Analyzer-WL differences are in the Sensor Unit.

A special thank to Prof. Dusan Hamar MD, PhD, Head of Institute of Sports Sciences, University of Bratislava, for his scientific expertise making the FiTROdyne project a reality.

TENDO Power Analyzer computer software

TENDO Power Analyzer can also be interfaced with a laptop computer and utilize new Tendo Power Analyzer software. This is fast becoming the choice of the professional trainers, colleges and pro teams. Computer software and Tendo Bluetooth are additional option in these models.
March 15, 2017 – New Version 5.0.4 released – Correction for graph comparison.
– New design of software window
– Added column for peak force and displacement in the table
– Graph comparison for whatever repetition
– Circuit Training Mode – possibility to change a person after each exercise set and later recall previous results from this training by change setting person’s name and continue with the exercise set. It is for training with group of athletes for one station.
– New database (it is recommended to save database from version V 4.1.0)
– Utilize the iButton chip for person’s identification

Multi-weight set

New upgrade for Tendo Power Analyzer microcomputer
(available for units since March 8, 2016)

It is not necessary to set correct weight, to get correct result for measurement of barbell velocity.
Velocity calculation is independent on load setting and it is possible use the microcomputer unit without changing load setting.
But if you want to know power for different weight of the bar, it was necessary to set the weight of the barbell, to get correct result for power measurement for new load.
It was necessary to clear data and then set new weight.
Up to now !
We bring a possibility to perform setting of a new weight without deleting measured data from microcomputer, to change the weight during the exercise set and so to have one multi-weight set, a set with different load of the barbell.
We have added weight settings to a setup menu of the microcomputer. Now it is not needed to reset the microcomputer if you would like to change weight setting. If you would like to compare e.g. power measurement for different weights (load) now it is possible to do it without deleting of data from previous measurement. Just set new weight in setup menu (without reset – deleting data from the microcomputer) and all measured results will be compared in one multi-weight exercise set. This way it is possible e.g. comparison of particular values for different weight with the absolute (best) value. This way it is possible to optimize not only training load but also easy determine number of repetition to guarantee stimulation of all, namely FTG (glycolytic) muscle fibers, because the movement must be always at least 90% of max power output measured in Watts (Hamar, Bosco)
