Jump + Balance: Predict Performance, Prevent Injury

Recording: Jump + Balance: Predict Performance, Prevent Injury, Mar 10, 2019


What can jump and balance tests tell us about an athlete’s current/future performance and injury risks? How can injuries be predicted and prevented? Top teams at the professional/collegiate level use technology to answer these questions.
Elite sports programs utilize musculoskeletal scans to measure physical abilities/deficiencies and injury potential. Athletes receive data-driven activity plans (i.e. measuring fatigue status to address playing time/off days) and prescriptive training regimens to reduce incidence and enhance performance. Learn how technology can prevent/predict injury through case studies and research. Explore underlying business implications of using data-driven insights to improve ROI: from scouting and talent identification, to training/performance, to cost savings.
