Just like in every other venture they’ve helped create, Alain and Marc’s objective is to bring a transformative change to the tennis world with NeuroTennis.
How it all began...
Neuro Tennis Alain Cohen, who describes himself as 'a man with a tennis bug' says, "It was a team effort. Mats, Cameron, and I were hitting balls during a WOW event in DC and then continued at weeklong events in different locations." When Alain and his brother Marc were hitting balls one day, Mats was giving him coaching hints from behind. "Marc was playing so well, he said he wished Mats was in his ear all the time." The three of them were sitting down with Cameron and wondered how to make that work. Alain continues, "How can we get Mat's suggestions exactly at the right time? Then the cadence would work and the product would make sense."
In 2015, their first idea involved sensors that detected impact, and their first prototype was housed in a case that fit in the throat of a racquet. But it was clumsy to play with. The next prototype was much smaller and still fit in the throat of a racquet. They were not quite there since the player felt the device during play. Finally, the idea was born to put it on the wrist into a bracelet.
