The Dutch company also aims to improve its app and AI development, providing athletes and sports organisations with cutting-edge tools and insights.
PULSE Sport: Reshaping Athlete Health, Performance Monitoring
Founded in 2021, PULSE Sport is on a mission to redefine athlete health and performance management through advanced sensors and AI technology.
The company’s sports psychology-based app and sensors monitor mental and physical health as well as team dynamics, providing personalised recommendations to improve performance and reduce injuries while nurturing athlete development.
With this, the company aims to solve issues that most athletes (professionals or amateurs) face or will face during their life – Over-Training Syndrome (OTS). It is defined as the situation that occurs when athletes train excessively without allowing enough recovery time between sessions.
SportInnovator is the Netherlands’ sports innovation network, supported by ZonMw (Dutch organisation for health research and healthcare innovation) and The Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare, and Sports.
