Start-ups present their digital sports medicine solutions
virtual.MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE 2020
On November 18 and 19, 2020, the virtual.MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE 2020 will take place online.

The session starts with Dr. Holger Hendrichs, VP of greenTEG, who will give a lecture on the subject of !core body temperature! in competitive sports. Hendrichs presents the first findings of the data collected on the Tour de France 2020 and from professional triathlon competitions.
Afterwards, Ben McNamara, head of the research department at Theragun, turns to the subject of percussive therapy in performance and recovery.
Ali Kord is COO of AiQ Synertial and will then talk about the exact recording and analysis of movement data from professional surfers. This new approach can revolutionize training but also the jury evaluation in competitions.
Nico Kaartinen, Managing Director of Kaasa Solution, is also an expert on the subject of motion analysis. He will talk about "synchronized mobile motion analysis with inertial measuring units". He will show examples from beach volleyball and figure skating.
Harald Freitag shows how sensor-based movement analysis can be combined with tailor-made training programs. He is the CEO / CTO of movX. The idea behind the movX technology is to record, analyze and optimize complex motion sequences with the help of a portable sensor system. The data and its 3D representation can not only help trainers and athletes, but also support physiotherapists and doctors in caring for their patients.
Koen Vercauteren, founder and head coach of ledsreact will show a new solution for agility and speed training in team sports in his concluding lecture. The "Ledsreact Pro" will fully automate the agility training or testing and gives insights needed to improve the agility performance of the players. Without wearable, they can track data points on agility capabilities that have never been accessible before - such as acceleration, deceleration, speed, decision making time, etc. This data enables you to make better and more informed decisions, e.g. for return to play or training schedules.
