Sports

Technology that gives you the winning edge

We help you push the limits of athletic performance with technology that gives you unique insights into the workings of the human body. Explore a wide range of possibilities ranging from the evaluation of athlete technique, injury risk and creating equipment that is optimal for specific performance goals.

Applications

  • Motion analysis and muscle function during sports
  • Identifying injury risk for joints, ligaments etc.
  • Designing and evaluating sports equipment
  • Movement efficiency - metabolic power calculation
  • Sports brace and support assessment
  • Gait and running - technique, footwear  assessment etc.
  • Swimming - stroke technique, muscle coordination etc.
  • Skiing - equipment, injury risk etc.
  • Soccer - ACL, long-term injury risk etc.
  • Numerical measures of performance & injury risk
         and more...
