On his farewell tour, Tommy Haas surprised us with his MercedesCup triumph. Thus, world-class tennis from Germany met Swiss smartwear - but this time both sides were winners, for within the scope of the MercedesCup, Tommy Haas and VEXATEC agreed on a partnership. "I am delighted to be the first of my sports discipline to test, use, and enjoy this innovation."
Haas will assist the company in further developing the new and revolutionary AGILITY SHIRTS and their individual adaptation to tennis. Haas, the newly victorious former world No. 2, is no doubt the ideal ambassador for the German, European and, in particular, US markets. For the first time ever, a shirt offers a comprehensive tracking approach that goes far beyond the classical measuring and recording of speed and stamina such as other wearables offer. VEXATEC equips its high-tech product with tiny textile sensors, which directly communicate with the respective app and, thus, allow users direct access to their data. And all this while offering the very best in comfort and additionally enhancing athletes' performance thanks to compression.
Others sports have joined the team with their own, high-profile testimonials: thus, soccer star Lothar Matthäus and ex-national player Torsten Frings are VEXATEC partners, too. As to tennis, players will particularly benefit from the 360-degree technology to enhance their playing ability, agility, and fitness. With its AGILITY SHIRT, the novel VEXATEC tracking function sets new standards in the domain of changing directions, lateral movements, posture, etc. In addition to precise and continuous ECG monitoring, individually tailored functions allow athletes to use a completely new and wide-ranging tracking approach in full mode. Its real-time data transfer provides players, coaches, physicians, and the entire support team with an optimum control potential, especially while training. Besides, competition situations and simulations also help optimize all processes and performance parameters.
VEXATEC founder Salvatore Gandolfo: "We know the effects and functions from motor sports. In the field of telemetry, Formula1, e.g., works with a data set and real-time diagnostics, which are very similar to our approach. The new aspect of the Vexatec innovation is its combination of T-shirt and high-tech solution. This is truly unique. Luckily, Tommy Haas was immediately and enthusiastically in favor of this approach."
Haas will complete further tests between Wimbledon and the US Open, adding important inside information for his own benefit and that of succeeding generations of tennis players. Gandolfo also promises: "No matter how hard or long Tommy wants to train, we are ready. Both the shirt and the data-transfer technology are ready, and things can't get too sweaty for us." For: the breathable compression shirt with its sensors has already proven its functional efficiency in long-term tests as even 100 washings did not reduce the effectiveness of the product.
