Current Status

 The KAT system is in the prototype  stage. You can see it in action on the Videos of KAT Training page. Our Experts and Ambassadors Team has been testing the KAT in their respective fields.

The KAT system will consist of multiple types of sensors and a mobile app. There are several prototype sensors with varying function in existence now. Some are currently being used in sports training; some are used in the PANTHERTEC lab - where the KAT Training sessions are filmed. The current mobile app is for product research and development purposes only.  The production ready user-friendly app is in the design phase.
 

The KAT Solution

The body's sensory-motor system consists of a network of pathways that send information from the body (via mechano-receptors) and the environment (via visual receptors) to the brain.

The brain interprets and prioritizes those signals to create a 'model' of where the body is in space and time.  During movement, the brain commands the muscles to move in a certain way based on this 'model'.   When the brain’s model is flawed the movement becomes flawed. The KAT helps correct the brain's model in real time.

PRECISE INSTRUCTION,
REAL-TIME FEEDBACK,
DURING PRACTICE.

The KAT system includes a suite of WEAR ANYWHERE® sensors that can be easily attached to an athlete’s body, clothing or sport equipment. A coach or instructor Captures® the desired position or movement in the KAT, that the athlete needs to replicate. It could be a golf stroke, a tennis serve, a yoga position, etc.

When the wearer replicates the desired movement in practice, the device provides instant audible and/or vibratory feedback.

Panthertec’s KAT system is the only wearable technology device that allows coaches to provide customized real time corrective feedback to  athletes. The system is so precise, it can be programmed to detect minute differences in kinematics, which can often mean the difference between ordinary and exceptional.
