Sports technology is an area of massive growth, with major potential commercial incentives, from the individual consumer to the elite sport level. Products in the health and performance domains, however, are not always trustworthy and effective, mainly because of a lacking integration of scientific knowledge. A growing number of organizations from the industry, startup, academic, and sports world are now joining forces within the international Sports Tech Research Network. The network connects research-driven companies with high-quality researchers and field practice experts around the world to exchange knowledge, optimize products, and positively impact the end-consumers. Svexa is one of the early members of the network.
STRN accelerates the creation, go-to-market, and implementation of trustworthy, effective technology within sports and health environments such as teams, federations, fitness training centers, hospitals, physical therapy practices, home training studios, and the broader society. Athletes and sports organizations are always looking for the best solutions out there in order to increase performance, augment engagement levels, prevent injuries, and otherwise reach better results. On the other hand, health and physical activity levels have been declining steadily, despite the number of available solutions and investments in the market have been skyrocketing the past decade.
To make these products and services more effective, STRN is setting up various activities such as Webinars, Masterclasses, Matchmaking events, Summits, Special Interest Groups, and R&D and commercialization Projects around the most relevant topics. Svexa will actively participate in these events to spread the word about the opportunities that svexa algorithms and tools offer to support the STRN vision.
The challenges we’re facing these days are becoming much more complex than they were in the past. New innovations will continue to rise, but I’m confident that the people who are succeeding in collaborating and partnering with others, and including the most recent scientific findings, will be most successful, says Kristof De Mey, Sports Tech Innovation & Business Developer & Founder at STRN.
Svexa was founded on the belief that science and anlytics can benefit athletes at all levels in the population. We partner with many organizations to bring that vision to life, so it makes perfect sense to nurture new relationships and sharing as an early member of the STRN adds Mikael Mattsson, svexa CEO.
Individuals and organizations who want to join as a member or partner of the network can request a membership here. For a more elaborate outline of why STRN was founded, you can download and read the STRN Vision Whitepaper.
