IEF-Werner developed a jumping-simulator for the ski boarding school Furtwangen:

The ski boarding school Furtwangen is a cadre factory for young sports talents – for example for ski jumping. Olympic and World Champions like Martin Schmitt, Sven Hannawald, Hansjörg Jäkle or Carina Vogt trained here. In order to guide the next generation of young athletes in the boarding school to the same kind of success, they recently started to use an axis-system which simulates the take-off from the ski jump perfectly. IEF-Werner GmbH, which is also seated in Furtwangen, developed this simulator.

The Nordic combined athlete Paul Schlegel is excited about the jumping simulator of IEF-Werner.

The system encourages the athlete to push straight forward when taking off, without creating a stronger force to the side and sliding off.

 

The system perfectly simulates the take off from the ski jump”: Stefan Horngacher, Paul Schlegel, Niclas Kullmann, Rolf Schilli, Andreas Hirt are enthusiastic (from left).
