Philadelphia Flyers to Use VivoChampionTrainer(TM) System to Condition and Strengthen Players
Date:9/12/2007

VOORHEES, N.J., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- VivoMetrics(R) Inc. and the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League today announced that the Flyers have incorporated the VivoChampionTrainer System into the team's training regimen for the 2007-2008 season. The team highlighted its use of the VivoChampionTrainer as pre-season Training Camp kicked off today at the Skate Zone.

"The Flyers will be utilizing the VivoChampionTrainer to optimize their players' fitness by customizing to each individual," said Alex Derchak, Chief Scientific Officer of VivoMetrics. "No two athletes are alike, and this innovative new tool will help the Flyers assess each player's fitness needs by giving them real-time, on-ice feedback that they could not otherwise obtain."

McCrossin and the team's coaching staff will use the VivoChampionTrainer to test the players' anaerobic and aerobic fitness throughout the season, using the information they gather to tailor exercise regimens and navigate the fine line between improved performance and overtraining.

"Our goal, as always, is to bring the Stanley Cup to Philadelphia," said Jim McCrossin, Athletic Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Flyers. "In utilizing the VivoChampionTrainer, it will not necessarily teach the players how to play better hockey, but it will certainly help to make them stronger and better conditioned athletes, which translates into improved performance.

"We believe that, come playoff time, our fitness level will be tremendous," added McCrossin.

The VivoChampionTrainer with LifeShirt(R) Technology is a revolutionary lightweight, compact, and non-invasive physiologic monitoring system specifically designed to monitor athletic performance during training and competition. It provides trainers and athletes with a competitive edge to increase training effectiveness, avoid overtraining and obtain an optimal state of physical competitiveness.

Built upon VivoMetrics' original LifeShirt System, the VivoChampionTrainer has been modified for athletic training and provides real-time measurement of respiration, heart rate, activity, posture and skin temperature during and after activity -- whether a practice session or an actual competitive event. Trainers, coaches and managers are able to view laboratory-quality data as the athletes perform in "real-world" environments. This allows factors such as stress of competition or environmental factors such as ice temperature to be duplicated and evaluated for their effect on player performance. The LifeShirtTechnology has previously been used by a diverse cross-section of individuals including astronauts, Navy pilots, elite mountain climbers and professional sports players.
