Connected Performance Athletes to Optimize Training with Nextiles Arm Sleeve and Data
New York, November 29, 2023 – Nextiles, the leader in smart fabric technology for coaches and athletes, today announced elite training provider Connected Performance will distribute the Nextiles Arm Sleeve and integrate Nextiles data into its training platform for all Connected Performance athletes.
The Nextiles Arm Sleeve tracks performance metrics such as rep-tracking, torque, arm velocity, and intensity levels for every throw. The data is streamed in real-time wirelessly and stored on the cloud. Through Nextiles’ APIs, data from the Nextiles Arm Sleeve will integrate directly into Connected Performance’s Connect training platform.
“We’re excited to partner with Nextiles and offer this innovative technology to our client base,” said Alec Hammond, CEO and Founder of Connected Performance. “The Nextiles Arm Sleeve will enable us to further personalize workload, baseline arm health and customize throwing programs for our athletes. The education and content we develop from our expert coaches will pair nicely with the Nextiles Arm Sleeve. This partnership only enhances our offering in the remote baseball training market.”
Connected Performance athletes will train with the Nextiles Arm Sleeve and be able to monitor stress on the arm real-time with the Nextiles Performance App. Once a session is complete, Connected Performance coaches and athletes will be able to review each session on the Connected Performance Connect platform powered by Nextiles’ APIs.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Connected Performance and their community of elite athletes,” said Dr. George Sun, CEO and Founder of Nextiles. “By leveraging our hardware and software platform - especially with our APIs - Connected Performance will be able to create a holistic picture of arm health for baseball player development in combination with their existing datasets.”
