The MyStroke Technology Backstory
Danny Broadhurst, Long Island, New York, is a life-long a competitive world-class paddle-sports athlete. His illustrious career in kayaking includes competing, designing, and coaching in multiple disciplines (surfing, slalom, marathon, sprint) at the highest level. He is a renowned designer of leading edge kayaks and equipment for racing, fitness, surfing, as well as sit-on-tops for general recreation. One morning in 2000 Danny woke up feeling particularly bad; …perhaps with the flu; …so he headed off to the local clinic for antiviral drugs or an injection. However, after waking up in the Emergency Room his physician assured Danny that: “we do not give people having HEART ATTACKS flu shots!”
After recovering from the shock, denial, the ICU, and then the rehab, Danny determined to adjust course with his diet and exercise regimen. He resolved that it was imperative to revive his world-class training regimen. As if often the case, this unwelcome life event marked the beginning of many fruitful adventures to follow. The Long Island South Shore (like all northern climes of the US, Europe and Asia) can be a brutal place for midwinter training in a kayak. Many days are just too cold, blustery, tempestuous, or ice-choked for paddling. So, urgently needing his exercise, Danny did what any discerning world-class boat designer would do; …he revisited some of his old sketches and revived his interest in ‘indoor paddling machines’.
After experimenting with all sorts strange creations he ultimately invented and built an exercise simulator that would duplicate most of the ergonomic movements of kayaking. Then he was able to do proper workouts, indoors on the Q.T., right through the winter, regardless of weather. After several years, dozens of technical iterations and innovations, and 2,000 hours of indoor workouts and revisions later, it occurred to Danny: “I am really onto something here. The development is proving out to be totally functional and I can feel the differences in my fitness and stroke correctness!“ Thus “The MyStroke Project” began.
In 2010 entrepreneur Joe Vinson, old customer and friend of Danny, joined “The Project”. Joe is the owner and president of Innovative Spectator Products, the parent Comapany of Kayak Trader.com and RACEceiver that makes auto racing communications products . With Joe’s manufacturing contacts they began the industrial process to productize Danny’s kayak simulator. Mechanical components were re-engineered using computer-aided drafting (CAD) automation. By early in 2012 all of the principal design elements were falling into place and they had a working prototype constructed with 3D printed parts.
MyStroke Technology products are designed and ready for manufacturing and patents have been filed. Product delivery will begin in 2015. Pricing will be exceedingly attractive.
The QT-Trainer Kayak Simulator
Our unique kayak exercise machine expedites core and total body conditioning, while simultaneously teaches correct kayaking technique. The adjustable OmniBall Resistance System, working in conjunction with our TransCatch Drive Train, scales up smooth, controlled, ergonomic workouts; with no strings attached! Variable tension points control the workload in all dimensional planes. This efficient, impact-free, cross-workout product’s benefits extend throughout the body – toes to head; …and ‘The QT’ perfectly compliments gym bikes, ellipticals, treadmills, walking, hiking, and bicycling. It’s amazingly compact, ultra-lightweight, portable, quiet-in-use, and affordable.
These MyStroke Technology products will be demonstrated initially for the paddle sports community, which comprises more than 20 million enthusiasts in the USA alone. The products will apply to all aspects/disciplines of paddle sport (Kayak, Canoe, SUP).
