Stressvest™ Overview

StressVest™ is the world's first non projectile, force on force, firearm tactical training system capable of creating stress through a pain penalty without fear of projectile injury for training Law Enforcement Officers and Military Soldiers. The system utilizes training firearm that fire a laser pulse which activates the StressVest™ when it strikes center mass. Depending on the setting, the vest will either deliver a vibration or a safe, localized shock to the abdomen.

  • Allows officers to train under a state of acute stress creating schemas that will dramatically increase their ability to survive a deadly force encounter with a firearm.
  • Sets up in seconds, maximizing training time and allowing you to train anywhere, anytime.
  • Does NOT require any special safety equipment, saving you time and money. Most importantly creating more realistic training by allowing you to see facial cues and hear auditory sounds clearly. Finally . . . train the way you fight.
  • Operates through most color clothing, allowing the StressVest™ to be completely concealed.
  • Training lasers can be fired through windows/windshields and offer a perfect ballistic match to issued ammunition for accuracy/distance.
  • Requires NO safety equipment. No projectiles = greater safety, less cost, no clean up, no need for special training facility.
  • Utilizes the wireless StressX™ PRO Belt that has Patent Pending software offering Advanced Training Modes never before seen in RBT dynamic scenarios.
  • Only registers center mass hits ensuring transference on how students are trained to shoot on the range vs shooting in force on force training.
  • Optional Head Sensors and side panels allow for specialized training.
  • Integrated Training IED's provide for a pain penalty to Officers/Soldiers within a preset "kill radius" upon detonation.

Different Ways to Activate the StressVest™

How Stressvest Works


StressVest™ features an externally worn, wireless StressX™ PRO belt that delivers a safe, localized, fully adjustable shock through clothing or a vibration for role players. The StressX™ PRO belt is the ONLY system in the world with patent pending Advanced Training Modes including Role Player, Stress Exposure, Move to Cover and Injured Officer.

Instructor CQT Tablet

The Instructor CQT Tablet remotely configures and controls up to 10 StressVests™. The CQT Tablet manages and interacts with scenarios from start to finish to give the Instructor unprecedented control of the training environment from activating individual StressVest™ to rendering all StressVests™ inert. Real time data includes seeing hits and monitoring trainees heart rates. Use the CQT Tablet's camera to record and play back scenarios.

Head Sensor

Sensors on the top panel and underside of the front of the visor of the Law Enforcement Baseball Cap pick up any hits to the upper facial region. This registers a hit for either students or role players and will deliver either a shock or vibration depending how the StressX™ PRO belt has been configured.

Side Panels

The addition of the side panels rewards students for incapacitation hits to the vital organs on the side of the body.

Blank Fire Training System

StressVest™ has partnered with UTM™ and Simunition® to create StressVest™ Blocked Barrel Conversion Kits that are compatible with a StressVest™ laser insert. With each blank round fired, the laser insert will emit an eye safe red laser pulse that will activate the StressVest™.

Note: UTM StressVest products not available in Western Canada, Northern Canada and Quebec (Simunition Only)

Advanced IED Integration

The IED Adaptor integrates any training IED with the StressVest™, producing the world's first IED training system with pain penalty. Preset your "kill radius" from 30ft to 100ft and all StressVests™ within that radius will be activated upon detonation.
