What does DPM stand for?
Deviating Pacing Mode
What is DPM mode?
Deviating pacing mode is designed to track variations in performance and give the athlete visual feedback when cognitive performance deteriorates. This feedback allows athletes to constantly push their cognitive limits. If the athlete can maintain a variation of 1-3%, they will not receive visual feedback. The duration of the feedback will depend on how much variation has occurred between their responses. This means athletes cannot get too relaxed and comfortable with their current cognitive processing speed. They must become comfortable with being uncomfortable and continually push beyond the edge of their capabilities.
When to use DPM mode
When you want your athlete to maintain high levels of cognitive processing with minimal deviations in performance.
