Smaller than a matchbox, VERT clips right to your clothes. As you jump, it tracks your verticals and displays the stats on a smartphone or tablet with the free VERT app.
With the coaches’ app, entire teams can track the jumping profiles of different people at the same time—perfect for basketball, volleyball, or track & field.
Founder Martin Matak, a little league basketball coach, developed VERT so the kids could track their jump height. He also had another benefit in mind: preventing the risk of injury from over-jumping. Before VERT, the only way to track height and number of jumps was to have someone do it manually. That wasn’t practical, and VERT now makes that data available fast and affordably.
We were extra excited that Martin makes VERT in the USA. It’s no wonder that Team USA for training Olympic volleyball athletes is a VERT partner. It shows just how high VERT sets the bar for wearables.
