StressVest® Corporation was incorporated in 2009 to research, design, commercialize, and distribute the patented StressVest®. StressVest® is the manufacturer and patent holder of the world’s first non-projectile, force on force, firearm tactical training system capable of creating stress through a pain penalty without fear of projectile injury for training Law Enforcement Officers and Military Soldiers. The system utilizes training firearms that fire a laser pulse which activates the StressVest® when it strikes center mass. Depending on the setting, the vest will either deliver a vibration or a safe, localized shock to the abdomen.
The original StressVest® GEN1 was launched in Jan 2012. After a complete redesign, StressVest® launched its current GEN2 version in January of 2013, which features a wireless StressX® PRO belt, complete blank based system, Instructor CQT Tablet and advanced IED integration. StressVest® launched its Reality Based Training Instructor Certification in 2013, where such notable agencies such as the US Navy Security Forces, US NSA Police, US New York/New Jersey Port Authority, and Dubai SWAT have been certified.
