VERT technology is designed and manufactured in America, making it the ultimate technology to help represent the national team during this year’s Summer Games. Discreet and non-invasive, VERT technology allows players and coaches to track numerous athletic measurements, including jump height, count, total load and more. The wearable sends the data to an app in real-time making it possible for players and coaches to make immediate decisions based on player performance and stats.
