The new Personalized Intensity Zone provides immediate feedback on how hard each athlete throws. The algorithm assigns a zone from 0 to 10 for every rep and provides coaches an intuitive way to create throwing programs by individualizing and categorizing intensity levels. This tool helps coaches and athletes to better communicate and manage arm stress in a simple, yet comprehensive way. With every throw, the Nextiles Arm Sleeve continues to learn from the athlete in real-time and further refines the intensity levels specific to each user. This provides an intuitive, personalized target to help avoid overuse and manage fatigue, optimizing overall arm health. 

“We’re excited to launch this new AI feature for the baseball market to help athletes manage fatigue and avoid arm injuries,” said Dr. George Sun, CEO and Founder of Nextiles. “We created this new algorithm which combines the athlete’s arm velocity, elbow torque, their height & weight biometrics, as well as other sensor-related factors to generate a machine-learned intensity value for each throw throughout the athlete’s career. The model will continuously learn and update these values the more they use the product. Ultimately, our algorithm will help bridge the communication gap between players and coaches, allowing them to better understand how much effort goes into each throw for the athlete’s particular body type and throwing style. By leveraging our hardware-software ecosystem, coaches can now create more personalized programming for their athlete’s daily workload and monitor injury risk from anywhere - all in real-time.”

The Personalized Intensity Zone feature is available today for all Nextiles App and Arm Sleeve users. The Nextiles App can be downloaded in the Apple Store.
