We decided to perform it on 22 of June, on Sunday, but it started raining at that moment and so that the ropes didn’t get wet I decided to perform Armenian BASE jump with two umbrellas(for safety !).
Then we gathered there on 26 of June, and performed it thanks to the support of administration of ‘Spitak’ resque team which helped us with the permit of such kind of an action on the bridge. Andranik, Anahit, Mikael and me prepared all the details of the flight line - anchores, absorbing part, ropes.
Anahit descended on her place about 10m below the bridge, it was her own initiative to make photos from that racurs. Then Hrachya Hovhannisyan(psychologist of Up The Rocks) made psychomotor diagnostic with me. After I was ready to perform it and I did it..!
click here to watch a video of our jumps.
The matter of psychomotor diagnostics is the following:
The methods of measuring psycho-sense motor actions are directed to the
measuring of important factors of activity and functional productivity, such as emotive volitional stability and self – regulation, the productivity of cognitive processes and mental actions , functional readiness, the productivity of collaboration of mental and physical actions.
In this sense, through the appreciation of functional productivity of psychomotor and sense motor actions, by the principle of retrospective arbitration, the levels of presence and functional of above mentioned qualities are decided.
The latter include the important raw of functional components of the psychical reliability construction.
Analyzing those records , it’s possible to appreciate not only the emotional state and psychological readiness of the person in present situation, at a given period, but also we get an opportunity to foresee its further manifestations in different situations.
Diagnostics is performed with self built, portable, electronic, diagnostic stand.
Authors: Hrachya Hovhanissyan PhD of YSU psychological department, Doctor of psychological science Mels Mkrtumyan , Engineer Ashot Hovhannissyan.
Supposed for the studies of functional productivity of the person’s sense motor actions through methods of durational and electronic impulse recording (with quantitative units of impulses).
The diagnostic period lasts at an average of fifteen minutes, through express way for 5 minutes (at the researcher’s discretion).
The details figured with the device are developed with the formulas of appropriate mathematical and phsycological methods.
A. REACTIOMETRIA –The productivity of the person’s motor actions, as we have already mentioned is conditioned with psycho-sense motor functions, in the system of which the reaction speed plays a great role. Measuring of simple and alternative reactions has been preformed.
B. TREMOROMETRIA - In the context of psycho- sense motor actions the measuring records of the arm tremors (fingers and wrist) are very informative . As it’s known, tremor intensifies parallel with the increase of neuron psychical tension. During our measuring the tremor is recorded with the help of impulse recording counter. Measuring of static and dynamic tremors has been performed.
C. TAPPING TEST - Trough this, the speed quality of movements, the rate stability and durability, neuron psychical mobilization , the capacity of strength allocation at a given period of time, which are conditioned with the person’s emotional state, are revealed.
