We are proud to partner with Vitruve (previously Speed4Lifts) to offer their Velocity Based Training device to our customers! Based out of Spain, Vitruve's mission statement is something we can get behind!
The Vitruve device is a Linear Positional Transducer device that provides a high level of consistency and accuracy in measuring bar speed (velocity). In a published study comparing various VBT devices, all experienced some level of error - however the Vitruve device was the only one in which the error was not variable. This means that data is output consistently under the same circumstances, ensuring quality, actionable data from session to session. Compared to VBT wearables based around accelerometers (inertial measurement), linear transducers like the Vitruve device, and other camera-based optoelectronic systems are much more accurate and consistent in their readings.
Vitruve has changed the way we approach athlete development at kineticPro. It has elevated the environment and become a staple in our programming daily.

My favourite VBT system is Vitruve. It gives our athletes instant feedback, makes them compete more and improve their power output.

so to set up a velocity profile on the competition powerlifts, i’m assuming i’d work up to a 1RM on all three lifts to record their velocities to create velocity zones correct? is there any information out there to fully utilize VBT?
Our VP of Athlete Experience/Head Coach, Brandon Senn, actually wrote an article regarding this subject. Here is a link; https://kabukistrength.com/the-autoregulation-book-of-methods-includes-a-free-velocity-profiling-download-for-all-readers/
Can you provide a summary comparison of the software features for the FLEX and Vitruve and the relative benefits of each? And other than the cost differential, why you would choose one technology over the other. Thank you.
Is the app only compatible with iphone? Is it still possible to use the device with android? Is it possible to export data to excel or manually key in data to excel?
You can use this product with an android. However, the app does not export data to Excel.
Looking at the Vitruve device specs, it reads the string length Is 3.2ft. Is this suppose to read meters, 3.2 ft seems a bit limiting?
I apologize. We checked with the company and the string length is 2.5m = 8.2 feet.
