VERT Adds More Volleyball Programs to Growing List of Team System Clients

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- VERT, a leader in performance technology, announces eight more premier NCAA women's volleyball clients - Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Northwestern University Wildcats, Purdue University Boilermakers, Baylor University, University of Arkansas, Quinnipiac University, Fordham University Rams and Limestone College Saints. They become the latest volleyball programs to acquire, and fully integrate, the G-VERTtm Team System.

The tech company provides performance data for over 300 programs in college and professional sports, both domestic and abroad.

"We decided to go with VERT because we needed a way to track the volume and intensity of our jumps during practice. With this knowledge, we can strategically plan practices to get the most out of our girls each week," said Stephen Reich, Assistant Director of Sports Performance, Northwestern University Volleyball.

Christina Specos, Associate Director of Strength & Conditioning, Purdue University Volleyball, is using the system to collect athlete information that has never before been available. "Being able to collect landing impact data during practice and games gives us relevant information we're using to make more informed decisions on programming as we progress throughout the season."

The G-VERTtm Team System is powered by VERT's machine-learning software, allowing coaches to measure a player's peak performance and collect data to reduce the risk of injury in real-time. The system uses a non-invasive internal measurement unit (IMU), that is worn around the waist, to measure the G-Force of every dynamic movement, as well as the impact each landing has on your joints. It is also small enough to be worn in compression sleeves on appendages to gather asymmetry and limb specific data, including the mechanical stress on your joints. These data sets are transmitted in real-time, via Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi, to VERT's proprietary software platform.

"Women's volleyball has an incredibly high rate of lower extremity injuries, primarily as a result of overuse and landing impact," said David Gil, Performance Lab Director, VERT. "The staffs at these schools all understand the importance of the new insights our system provides, especially in regards to identifying hard landers, so they can be more targeted in keeping their players healthy and strong," added Gil.

VERT's technology was the first performance wearable to be approved by the NCAA to be worn during games. VERT recently hosted the third annual VERT Challenge in Gainesville, FL, where four top 20 teams competed against each other while wearing the technology. Using VERTcast, a sports telemetry broadcasting system, fans were able to see, in real-time, how high their favorite players jumped, via metrics displayed on the screens in the arena, as well as during the television broadcasts on the SEC Network, the Longhorn Network and streaming on ESPN3.

About VERT: Headquartered in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., VERT is a leader in wearable athletic technology focused on creating a better experience for athletes, coaches and fans. VERT is used in a variety of sports, including basketball, volleyball, running and many other health and fitness activities. VERT is the official wearable technology of USA Volleyball and is currently used by the USA Volleyball National teams, NCAA volleyball and basketball programs throughout the US.
