“The applications we are quickly finding are endless. It never gets tired and it runs at an appropriate football speed. In today’s NFL, with player safety the focus, I think it’s going to provide opportunities to improve without the hand to hand or man to man combat.”

– Steelers Head Coach, Mike Tomlin


Player Safety

Buddy Teevens, head football coach at Dartmouth College, was tired of his players injuring one another during practice. So, he banned live tackling in practice. From that day forward, Dartmouth football decided to focus on fundamental tackling drills to improve performance.

By introducing these new technique-specific tackling drill circuits, his players not only became better tacklers, but also remained healthier throughout the season. To simulate live tackling in the most effective and realistic way, Coach Teevens introduced the Mobile Virtual Player (MVP) – the world’s first and only motorized, self-righting, mobile training dummy.

Ultimately, the modifications made to practice along with the use of high-tech solutions like the MVP helped Dartmouth to its 18th Ivy League Championship in 2015.

The MVP helped increase performance and reduce injuries for the Dartmouth defense, playing a big role in its finish as the No. 1 ranked scoring defense in the country during the 2015 season!

Winner of the NFL’s 2017 1st & Future Competition

Mobile Virtual Player was announced as the winner of the “Training the Athlete” category in the second annual 1st and Future competition, a collaboration between the NFL and the Texas Medical Center (TMC) to award startups focused on driving innovations to advance sports technology and athlete safety.
