Comparative study on biometric measurements of vertical jump using lewis and jump meter tests



Comparative study on biometric measurements of vertical jump using lewis and jump meter tests



Cahiers d'Anthropologie et Biometrie Humaine 7(1-2): 59-68



A comparative study in vertical jump measurement was performed using the classical Lewis' method (Jump along a graduated scale) and the Jump-Meter, an electronic direct reading device. The reproducibility of vertical Jump measurement using a Jump-Meter was tested with 23 schoolchildren with no significant difference between three repeated measurements. A sample of 108 subjects was studied, it was composed of 69 boys and 39 girls of 13 years and 3 months (.+-. 11 months) practicing or not sport (track and field, swimming, tennis). The main value of all measurements with Jump-Meter is higher than that obtained with Lewis' method. For the boys, the analysis of covariance shows that the results should not be extrapolated from one test to the other. Track and field and schoolchildren have regression lines with different slopes (P < .005); track and field and swimming have different adjust means (P < .001). For the girls the degree of linkage is not sufficient to allow the pooling of the results from both test within one discipline. It then appears that motor coordination plays an important part in the performance of the tests and favors certain disciplines.
