ReacTime was the world’s first Championship False Start Detection System that could also be used as a modular Reaction Training System. Unlike some simpler systems, ReacTime has no “contact pads”, and it cannot be tricked. The system is easy to use and rugged. The battery or AC powered blocks are weatherproof and are designed to withstand the tough demands of a track environment. When used as a stand-alone personal training system to help sprinters improve their starting technique, an individual ReacTime module can be used to record and display an athlete’s gun-to-motion times to an accuracy of 1/1000th of a second. The Competition ReacTime system detects false starts (as defined by IAAF rule 162.10 and USATF rule 60.18) - also to an accuracy of 1/1000th of a second-and instantly signals this information to the starter.
