CHECK™ is a revolutionary way to assess and monitor Training Readiness and recovery aimed especially for athletes engaged in sports requiring strength, explosive power, skill and coordination. These sports include most of the team sports (e.g. football, basketball, hockey and rugby), individual sports requiring skill and coordination (e.g. tennis, golf, athletics and badminton), fight sports (e.g. boxing, wrestling, MMA) and sports requiring explosive power (e.g. fitness, gym, crossfit and bodybuilding). Our solution also works in endurance sports providing additional information to heart-rate based assessments.
CHECK™ is based on the physiological phenomena of muscle reflex generated by specific low-voltage current. The delay and intensity of the muscle reflex describes the total load on the neuro-muscular system of an athlete.
CHECK™ is designed to be a training aid for athletes, coaches and medical professionals. It helps to optimize training, to avoid over-training and to reduce injuries.
