Developed in Finland in co-operation with athletes and Finnish sport scientists, CHECK™ is an innovative training device, which helps users to optimise training programmes by assessing neuromuscular readiness and recovery. It offers a total solution, which includes an assessment device, smartphone application and a cloud service. CHECK™ works by using electrodes to send a low-voltage current through the body to stimulate the nerve-muscle connection. The muscles intensity and delay of the reaction is measured and the training readiness of the athletes is assessed in real-time.
Already being used by a number of professional footballers, NBA and NFL teams, CHECK™ is aimed at athletes engaged in sports requiring strength, explosive power, skill and coordination. This includes most of the team sports e.g. football, hockey and rugby, individual sports e.g. tennis, golf and athletics, fight sports e.g. boxing and wrestling as well as general fitness, cycling, running, cross fit and bodybuilding. CHECK™ also works in endurance sports such as running or cycling, providing comprehensive information to heart rate based assessments.
CHECK™ helps professional and recreational athletes to assess and measure training readiness. The product is aimed especially at athletes engaged in sports requiring strength, explosive power, skill and coordination and it helps the user to optimise trainings, reduce injuries and avoid overtraining. CHECK™ combines an assessment device, a mobile app and an online service for coaches and trainers. www.checkmylevel.com
