Power meter for handbike


I am part of a research group at University of Verona in Italy and we have modified a handbike so it now acts as a pedaldriven boat. We are interested in measuring Power but have discovered that the Stages power meter is unable to measure power on a handbike because the force profiles are different from a normal bike.

Which power meters do you use on your handbikes to measure power? And do you know which power meters work with handbikes?

Best regards

I think you are looking for Pink Unicorns . AFAIK the marketplace supplies them just for bicycle crank-sets ..

You probably have to Buy a number of different ones , That are Made , and test them in Your University labs.
