User can then use the data to improve training and to optimize their recovery.

Check includes a novel assessment device, mobile application (Android and iOS) as well as a cloud service for analysis and information management. The solution has been developed together with Finnish sports scientists and is essentially targeted for sports requiring skill, coordination and strength. It also provides significant added value in high-altitude and endurance training.
