Our mission is to make professional-grade training available to young athletes at a price a family can afford.Such early training in correct technique will not only help our young athletes compete at higher levels, but also prevent sports-related injuries that result from incorrect techniques.
To meet this objective, we have developed the “Wearable Coach” which marries low cost sensor and computation technology with sophisticated software running on mobile devices readily available to our customer base. Our initial focus is on the baseball pitch but we will continue on to all motion training activities.Request Info on Investing
History of Wearable Coach
Research started formally on this product with the formation of Pro-Motion Action, LLC (PMA) September 23, 2008 by Gary Pullins, Kyle Love, Kirk Love, and Dan Gale. Since then we have developed several limited prototypes as we worked to perfect underlying hardware and, more importantly, the mathematics that relate physically separate motion sensors to an overall logical model of a human body.
As we have moved from one prototype to another we have been able to incorporate what we have learned into our product as well as taking advantages of evolving sensor and microprocessor technology. Today our sensor components (called Markers) deliver more performance per dollar than any other product on the market. Our Markers currently incorporate the next generation of sensors that will shortly be placed into cellphones, videogame controllers, and low cost robots.
