Sports technology company, SportsScientia, has unveiled a smart football boot that can predict and prevent injuries in players. The project, which uses the first-of-its-kind wireless smart insole is partly funded by LCR 4.0 business support programme and the £15million Sensor City project.
SportScientia is a UK and Singapore-based innovation company that specialises in collecting and interpreting dynamic biometric performance data from proprietary wearable sports technology. Its latest creation uses a set of 3P smart insole that monitors the movement and loading distribution of athletes while they are training. The data is then used by the player, the coach and the physiotherapist to monitor, predict and prevent injuries.
Peter Lazou, founding partner of SportScientia, said: “Our aim at SportScientia is to use advanced technology to create products that provide a better understanding of sports performance and to reduce the risk of injury.
“The LCR 4.0 programme and Sensor City team have given us the resource to make this possible and brought us one step closer to becoming a more recognisable brand name globally.
“We were given access to the mechanical and electronics labs we needed to re-engineer our initial model, meaning we now have a set of accurate prototypes that we can test before proceeding to the full manufacturing process.”
