MENTIS project is an innovative tool that, through data collection and Virtual Reality applications, enables athletes developing attention control and improving their performances. The tool consists of a collection of Virtual Reality applications for physical and mental training and a web-based data analysis platform that allows visualization and retrieval of performance data by the athletes and their coaches. It is noted that the project was co-financed within the framework of the Business Innovation Scheme of the Research and Innovation Foundation “Development of Internationally Competitive Innovative Products and Services from STARTUPS” (SEED).
