VENTRAL in use while cycling
VENTRAL facilitates the improvement of breathing pattern retraining during sport for increased cycling and rowing performance. Many cyclists and rowers do not breathe optimally during sport. By taking longer, deeper breaths the athlete’s performance can improve, however this can be hard to implement due to other skills in these sports requiring more focus and attention. VENTRAL gathers data from cadence sensors and delivers the athlete with a real time mindful breathing alert through vibrations to the chest.
The athlete synchronises their breathing to this vibration rhythm and performs better, with the potential to improve their power output by up to 3.2%.
