ATHLETE PHYSIOLOGICAL AND PEAK PERFORMANCE MONITORING

ZEPHYR TECHNOLOGY
Zephyr wearable Tracking Technology was originally developed in conjunction with Special Forces and NASA and was designed to measure and monitor the vital signs of individuals and teams in training, or when deployed in hazardous environments.

Zephyr's robust body-mounted wearable device monitors individual players and helps coaches to quantify and track athlete progress and the overall effects of training.

Johnson Sports Training - JST is The Number One Distributor of Zephyr GPS Performance Monitoring Technology for Pro and College athletes in the US and North America.

Game Changing Technology
Old school ways of training and coaching are quickly being replaced by the measurable benefits gained from Athlete Physiological Performance Monitoring and Data Analytics. The ability to look "inside" players physiologically while measuring performance factors is a clear advantage for any strength coach. 

Beyond what is apparent to the naked eye, JST Zephyr can help coaches see player force production, and how fast they can produce that force. Movement workload can be compared to physiological variables while athletes play and practice ensuring that training, endurance, and explosiveness is being improved in every session.  

With 10HZ GPS and triple axis accelerometer inertial movement tracking, Zephyr's wearable records a number of physiological parameters measuring Heart Rate (ECG), HR variability, HR Recovery, Breathing Rate, VO2Max, Estimated Core Temperature, and calories burned.  Zephyr's wearable is the ideal solution to build your program development around.  Zephyr can help you effectively refine your athlete's training protocols with data-driven decisions, taking all guess work out of the training equation.

Monitor internal and external training loads to get a true measure of individual capacity, and each of your athlete's response to your training sessions.  Zephyr gives coaches the power to see and quantify each player's development at any time throughout the season. Wearable technology will let you know exactly where you need to improve an athlete's foundation, potential game-strength, and power.

With JST Zephyr’s PSM (Physiological Status Monitoring) GPS and Accelerometer data, coaches can see physiological intensity and load (cumulative effort) in real-time.  Conditioning, effort, stress and exertion can be quantified, recorded and analyzed.  Zephyr lets coaches know how hard players are working during training and drills.  Measure beyond when a player thinks they're giving their maximum effort - physiological and mechanical output data will tell you the real story.  Zephyr data allows a coach to see who is maxing out, who is giving 110%, and who isn't; who is able to push through the wall, and which players have the mental toughness to go beyond.  

Accurate monitoring of player loading, speed, distance, acceleration, and impacts becomes an indispensable tool in assessing player development and overall athleticism.  Zephyr step counting, speed zones, heart rate zones, caloric expenditure, alone is very powerful. Combined with force, intensity and exertion in practice and drills - and even during games is invaluable for coach decision making. Answer the vital question of how long and how intensely should we train in the days leading up to a game. Zephyr measures offer the power to differentiate peak performers and determine areas where further strength or functional movement training may be needed.

Analyzing training progression, monitoring improvements in athleticism, and ensuring proper execution of technique can all be enhanced using the insight that Zephyr data analysis provides.  Coaches training to improve speed, agility, and explosiveness of their players now have a powerful approach for making hard data-driven strategies.

Continual assessment with Zephyr is a powerful means of detecting deficits and strengths in a player's movement tendencies and patterns. Coaches can analyze the data points that Zephyr provides to make effective adjustments to training protocols and tailor skills acquisition drills to an individual, or to the movements needed for success at their position.

The Zephyr PSM embedded Team Compression Shirt consists of three integrated components: a Zephyr BioHarness system including a removable puck-shaped BioModule which houses the accelerometers, sensors, power source, transmitter, and memory storage; a puck receptacle and conductive fabric ECG-chest strap is incorporated into a sleeveless compression garment woven from high-tech fabric that is moisture-wicking, antimicrobial, and quick-drying.

We believe that the easy wearability of this shirt, combined with the even contact of electrodes afforded by the compression material, make it the best format to date for deployment of a physiological, motion, and force monitoring system for training, practice, field, and in game environments. 

Physiological factors are of vital importance in accurately assessing and keeping athletes safe whenever they are working. Whether in practice, drills, workouts, periodized training progressions, return to play modalities, rehab from injury, or in actual games; physiological measures are crucial in forming a comprehensive picture of an athlete's state of health and performance readiness.  

Offsetting even simple soft tissue injuries such as hamstring pulls can save teams more than money, keeping peak performers on the field or court to win more games can be the determining factor in any team's success.

JST Zephyr GPS  allows you to individually track players, training groups, or the whole team. Compare and quantify individual's progress as players become stronger and more explosive. 
Design specific training protocol for position to match the demands of the game with an accurate and complete assessment.
