What is SportScientia?
Updated: Oct 5, 2020
Data-driven Wearable Tech
SportScientia is a brand new wearable tech product (shoe insole) that helps athletes maximise their potential with accurate dynamic stress load data at foot level.
SportScientia’s insole technology is a unique and fresh approach to monitoring athletic performance and readiness. The data can be analysed in real-time on the ﬁeld or through remote monitoring. The information will assess an athletes’ metabolic power, fatigue index and dynamic stress load. SportScientia measures the objective bio-mechanical data that cannot be observed by the naked eye.
The insole is an essential tool for practitioners, providing them with valuable data and insights into what forces are being applied by athletes across the foot and where those forces are focused. This enables practitioners to provide each athlete with a personalised training regime where weaknesses are ironed out, strengths enhanced, and the chance of injury reduced.
Already being used and tested by Middlesboro Football Club, John Moores University in Liverpool, and the Red Bull Athlete Performance Center, the insole provides practitioners with DSL data that will help mitigate the potential risk of an injury by understanding an athletes’ bandwidth and capacity in producing and absorbing force.
SportScientia’s Key Metrics Are:
Comprehensive insights into dynamic stress load (DSL) patterns at foot level.
Understanding the shift in DSL patterns due to injury.
Insights on bandwidth relating to which athletes are better at producing force vs absorbing force.
Identifying where the ground reaction forces are being applied across the foot and why.
The use of data mining and machine learning in sport holds promise. If we can predict what will happen in a given circumstance, then we can make interventions to guide us to the desired outcome.
