3. Mobile Virtual Player (MVP) Becomes USA Football’s Preferred Tackling Equipment Partner (USA Football Blog)
Mobile Virtual Player (MVP) – the company to develop and patent the world’s first self-righting robotic tackling dummy to help reduce player-on-player contact and the overall incidence of injuries suffered during football practices – is now the preferred tackling equipment partner of USA Football.
This summer, MVP released a newer lower-priced model, MVP|SPRINT, for high school and youth programs. By redesigning and sourcing consumer electronic parts, the MVP team was able to successfully create a robotic dummy that is durable, sells for $3,450 and has increased performance on grass and the rougher field types that high school and youth programs often practice on.
