Our Software works on Android or iOS Smartphones, Tablets, Windows PC or Mac iOS Computers;” says CEO Vinson.

“The MyStroke Coaching Widget gives the knowledge and independence an athlete
needs for when they have to exercise or train on their own. Our software collects and organizes performance data from (1) Our Widget, (2) a GPS Device, and (3) a Heart Rate Monitor. Before our Widget this kind of motion capture analysis and support was only possible at indoor laboratory and research studio facilities;” says CMO Stuart.

Joe Vinson – Chief Executive Officer
Vinson is Owner and President of Innovative Spectator Products. His groundbreaking RACEceiver® auto racing communications products have fueled the rapid growth of that company. Vinson’s products streamlined auto racing and safety, with 60% of the racetracks in the United States requiring drivers to use RACEceivers for communications with the tower.
