Real-Time Exercise Feedback
The idea for Precision Sports Technology was conceived by founder Emma Meehan when training in the gym. Emma identified her technique as incorrect, and noticed other people training with the same issue. Anyone exercising, whether it is for health, fitness or sport, should be able to know at all times how effective their form his to maximise safety, performance and engagement. Personal trainers, coaches and healthcare professionals are essential workers, but their value can be scaled and delivered to a much wider population with the aid of computer vision, cloud deployment and artificial intelligence.
Computer vision has incredible possibilities
Originally developed on the Xbox Kinect, Precision Sports Technology are utilising modern LiDAR technology and Artificial Intelligence to harness objective human movement data. Using proprietary algorithms and techniques, the software can deliver real-time feedback to athletes, fitness enthusiasts and patients as they are performing the exercise. Users can self-correct mid-set, without the manual intervention from a fitness or healthcare professional.
The data collected during the exercise session is securely stored in the cloud and made available to fitness and healthcare professionals anytime, anywhere. This provides professionals with far greater insights on their clients' movement, which otherwise would not be achieved, enabling an accelerated feedback loop and better physical outcomes for the client.
