Motus Global Brings Wearable Tech to the Arm Swing with motusVB

motusVB provides actionable data to athletes and coaches with sensor and app pairing
Rockville Centre, NY—December 7 2017— An unstoppable wave of data is about to hit the court and the beach. Motus Global, the leader in sports performance wearables and biomechanics data analysis, is bringing its technology to the sport of volleyball.

Harnessing the power of Motus’ sensors that have been used in Major League Baseball, the NFL, and elite college sports, the new motusVB will be able to give volleyball coaches and players insights they’ve never had before, like Spike Speed, Serve Speed, and Jump Height.

The motusVB uses two small Motus sensors to give a wealth of usable, actionable data in real time. Coaches and players will now instantaneously know jump height, spike speed, and much more, all in a small, comfortable form factor that won’t slow anyone down.

“We’re excited about bringing the power of data and machine learning to volleyball,” explained Joe Nolan, the CEO of Motus Global. “Our mission is to empower athletes and coaches with the kind of data that has never been available before. The motusVB is going to give lab-accurate results in a comfortable, affordable package.”

The motusVB system is currently being used by some of the top volleyball programs in the nation, including the nationally ranked Women’s and Men’s teams from Penn State. This testing is giving Motus invaluable insights to help every player and coach at any level – club, high school, college, and international – improve their game through the power of data.

The motusVB system comes with everything you’ll need to be up and spiking in no time. The Motus sensors are the most accurate and sensitive on the market, proven through years of testing at our world class motion capture lab and our leadership in baseball and football. The motusVB also integrates with our motusONE platform, the first complete, objective motion assessment system.

The motusVB will debut at the AVCA Convention. “The missing piece in shoulder injury prevention and attack training has been a wearable that counts the number of swings and provides accurate readings on velocity,” said AVCA Executive Director Kathy DeBoer. “MotusVOLLEY gives us an affordable way to become better coaches!” 

The system will retail for $199, but pre-orders are available now at $139 during AVCA. Ben Hansen, the Chief Technology Officer of Motus, will present at the convention, showing off the product and it’s uses.
