Higher, faster – pain-free

Dear Sir or Madam,

Perhaps you have experienced it yourself: Especially in sports, there is always room to optimize your own performance. Wearables are then often used to analyze movements. But such wearables can do more: some sensors help not only to improve our performance, but also to remain injury-free. Find out how wearable technologies and artificial intelligence can predict injury risks in our Topic of the Month!

Enjoy reading!

Wearables are increasingly being used in sports medicine, for example, to prevent injuries or to provide users individually with real-time data about their fitness and health. By analyzing this data, risks for sports injuries can be identified early and training can be customized to the user's needs and goals. In combination with AI, wearables can additionally learn from the collected data and provide the user with personalized tips and suggestions for their training.
