A Greek SME company active in the sports science sector is offering a novel patented tool, which may assess the injury potential of individual athletes and prevent painful accidents in the future. Professional athletes frequently suffer from injuries because of their heavy training and the large number of events that they participate. These injuries do not only affect their personal well-being but also result to significant financial losses for the teams that they belong to.
The tool is able to predict sports injuries before they occur by conducting a fully personalized assessment allowing the complete evaluation of the athletes muscle system accurately, efficiently and objectively using a real time mechanical and medical data system. Contrary to the existing solutions based mainly on statistical data, the offered one computes the actual forces exerted on each athlete and constructs a personal muscle profile involving risk factors and potential muscle failures that are like to cause injuries.
The company which has patented its technology in Europe has also submited its application in USA. Within this framework it is interested in collaborating with sports teams either by offering directly its solution under a commercial agreement or by collaborating for further testing and validating the solution under technical agreement.
