Fort Lauderdale, Fla-based wearable athletic technology company VERT debuts VERT2, the next generation of its wearable jump monitoring device, now featuring the ability to measure intensity, exertion, and stress along with jump height and count.
The product debut comes on the heels of another company announcement that it is partnering with Miami-based compression apparel brand Zensah and will now integrate VERT technology into Zensah apparel.
Both the VERT2 and Zensah apparel with VERT technology are making their debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 in Las Vegas, according to a media release from VERT.
VERT2 is a noninvasive and discrete inertial measurement unit (IMU) worn on an individual’s body to report numerous athletic measurements, including total Gs, high/low intensity count, surges per minute, surge count, high acceleration (Gs), and average peak acceleration (Gs). These measurements are sent to the VERT software architecture in real-time, which can then be monitored by coaches and athletes during or after use, the release explains.
The VERT technology is currently being used by the USA Volleyball National teams along with NCAA volleyball and basketball programs throughout the United States, per the release.
