Quantifying movement, Optimising performance.

In 2019 PhysiGo commenced working with the UK Olympics Track and Field team at the Seb Coe High Performance Athletics Centre (HiPAC) at Loughborough University in the UK. British Athletics were interested in using advanced analytics provided by PriceWaterhouse Coopers (PWC) to improve performance across the Olympic track and field disciplines. British Athletics runs an annual program called ‘The Futures Academy Programme’ which aims to confirm an athletes potential to transition on to the World Class Programme in the next cycle and support those who have highlighted the potential to win medals at future Olympic and Paralympic Games.

PhysiGo developed a bespoke solution through the creation of the Running Pod Elite to meet the needs of British Athletics through:
• Powerful AI enabled sensors to bring lab grade measurement to the field

• AI analysis of Strength and Conditioning (plyometrics)

“We are very pleased to be working with PhysiGo, who share our vision for data-driven performance improvement. PhysiGo has shown a capability to combine product innovation and flexibility to meet the exacting standards of elite performance athletes.” Tommy Yule, Head of Performance Support at British Athletics.
PhysiGo are proud to have provided British Athletics, the training Team and their Athletes with a solution to assist in their preparations for the next Olympics!
