This time last year, I blogged about an amazing mobile app known as ‘My Jump‘ in the following post. The app was the first of it’s kind scientifically validated to measure vertical jump height. This ultimately meant that it was now possible to conduct accurate tests with nothing more than a smartphone or iPad. As a result, our school was able to retire the inaccurate ‘chalk on a wall’ technique for our senior sports science students.
Since the post, I’ve had a lot of emails from people who’ve enjoyed the app, however, many asked for an alternative that would work on a laptop or Chromebook. My answer to this was that it wasn’t available – that is until now…
What’s My Vertical is a web browser based vertical jump calculation tool that lets users accurately measure their vertical jump height using the same algorithm as the ‘My Jump’ application. See it in action in the video demonstration below;
To use What’s My Vertical, simply visit the website www.whatsmyvertical.com or download the Chrome App from the web store below. It couldn’t be easier – oh and did I mention it’s entirely FREE.
