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 human body has a ceiling of performance, we are genetically predisposed to reach a level which we will never be able to exceed. But the reality is that 99% of people have not even approached to touch it. The only way to unlock our full potential is by knowing our bodies and working smart.


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.

Ask a Question
  • 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.
