The Myrtha Pools Virtual Trainer is an innovative and exclusive patented wireless system developed with Aqvatech Engineering.  Virtual Trainer is used to monitor the performances of swimmers during training time. The system controls a led strip that runs along the whole length of the pool and is waterproofed by a sheath.

The strip can be placed either on the pool floor or on the water surface along the floating lane line. At the beginning of the training session the strip receives programmed impulses that progressively switch on the led lights according to a previously established time and for a specific number of laps.
The athlete’s point of reference is the constant light flow and he can easily check whether his rhythm is in line with his programme or if he is too slow or too fast. The perception approximation is less than half a second and the led intensity allows for perfect visibility in any light condition.

Technical features – The working principle is based on the possibility to programme the system wireless with a remote control, a laptop included in the Virtual Trainer supply or a smartphone. Any type of programme or training rhythm, also with different speeds, can be stored and sent to the led circuit.

– The Virtual Trainer contains a number of preinstalled training programmes. Additional or personalised programmes that meet the swimmer’s physical features or goals can be manually stored in the laptop or smartphone through the available applications. Programming via laptop or smartphone can also be made online.

– The led strip is waterproof and it has been tested up to 25 bar pressure in a hyperbaric chamber.

– The system can be fed by electricity or batteries (lasting for more than 5 hours).

– Different led strip lengths are available for 25 and 50 m swimming pools. Different lengths are available on demand/upon request.
