The StressVest™ Advantages
ADVANTAGE 1 – STRESS INOCULATION TRAINING
True Stress Inoculation Training requires an incremental exposure to a stressor. Since non lethal training ammunition have a consistent mass and velocity, the pain penalty is not adjustable. The StressVest™ has an adjustable pain penalty that allows the instructor to set the penalty to the appropriate level of the student being trained.
ADVANTAGE 2 – GREATER SAFETY & REALISM
Since the StressVest™ system utilizes eye safe lasers and no projectiles, it allows a safety template never before seen in force on force training. There is no longer a fear of unprotected individuals entering the training area. Training does not require special protective equipment that covers facial cues and recognition.
ADVANTAGE 3 – CENTER MASS REWARD SYSTEM
One of the most common complaints from firearms instructors conducting force on force training is that students are rewarded regardless of their shot placement. The StressVest™ only activates the vibration when hit in the upper torso region. Video taped training will show shot placement and response times outside of center mass.
ADVANTAGE 4 – COST SAVINGS
There are several training firearm options available for use with the StressVest™. This includes dry fire, CO2 recoil, and blank fire kits. No additional costs are incurred for additional protective equipment, non lethal training rounds or extra safety personnel.
ADVANTAGE 5 – NO DAMAGE OR CLEAN UP
The StressVest™ system allows for training in the actual environment that law enforcement and military conduct their business without worry of damage or messy clean up. Train anywhere . . . anytime.
ADVANTAGE 6 – REALISTIC SHOOTING DISTANCES
The accuracy and distance using lasers is a ballistic match to the issued ammunition. This includes the ability to shoot through windows or windshields.
ADVANTAGE 7 – ADVANCED TRAINING MODES
The patent pending software based controller allows for several modes:
- Stress Exposure Mode: The level of shock can be set for each individual student.
- Move to Cover Mode: Each successive hit will result in an increase in pain penalty. This will force the student to move during the fire fight.
- Injured Officer Mode: After the student is hit, they will continue to
receive a random pain penalty for the rest of the scenario. This teaches students proper mindset for winning encounters.
- Role Player Mode: Delivers a vibration instead of pain penalty. The StressVest™ can be set to activate only after a specified number of hits occur.
