KONG IQ just signed an agreement with Missouri Western State University (MWSU), making MWSU the first NCAA Division II Athletic Department in the country to move towards a single database for sports medicine & sports performance. KONGiQ, powered by Vivature, sets a new standard when it comes to measuring athletic performance data, as the only strength and conditioning software that tracks velocity, force, distance,and effort; using a three-dimensional robotic tilt-camera and a large-scale enterprise-level software. KONG IQ allows your strength & conditioning staff the ability to work in conjunction with other departments to improve the overall well-being of each student-athlete. KONGiQ was developed by Vivature and is in the same database that records student-athlete activities in Nutrition, Behavioral Health, Academic Counseling, Athletic Training and now Strength & Conditioning. This is the first software in America that integrates the student-athlete life-cycle into one platform.

“Partnering with Kong IQ allows our sports performance and athletic training staff to operate more effectively and efficiently while prioritizing the athletic development, health, and safety of our student-athletes. In addition to the obvious advantages Kong IQ provides our athletic department, it also opens doors to expanded partnerships and research opportunities with professors and students in MWSU’s HPER program.” – Josh Looney, MWSU Director of Athletics
“Kong IQ will allow us to keep up with the most current training trends in the strength & conditioning industry, at the highest level. This technology will help us better assess and monitor our athletes fatigue levels, and reduce the chances that the athletes will over train.

We are grateful to the Kong IQ staff and our director of athletics, Josh Looney, for making this a reality for our student athletes.” – Greg Carbin, MWSU Director of Sports Performance
