Named Perch, the new fittech outfit aims to track movements and exercises of athletes, such as weightlifting - something the startup says current fitness technology fails to address - and capture a complete picture of athlete movement. This data is then delivered to coaches and personal trainers.
“This helps to improve motivation and informs elite athletes, weekend warriors, and retirees alike of what they can be doing to move more powerfully, efficiently, and safely,” explains Perch CEO and co-founder, Jacob Rothman. “Perch is still a young; we are currently running several pilot programs in the Boston area.”
Scaling with you as you grow, Perch allows you to create workouts, surveys, assign velocity thresholds as well as deliver content directly to an on-rack tablet. Here, the user can view and annotate historical data and workout video or export data as a CSV for integration into your current workflow.
