Originally posted on  on August 26 2016

Brisbane based SMG Technologies has introduced Baseline, the first product available to offer the ability to tap into the same technology used by elite sporting professionals and large international colleges.

Baseline centralises communication tools, notifications and data from any source on staff and student health, wellbeing, training and performance. XELA, a predictive analytic engine collates, monitors and analyses the information and provides trends and changes in wellness, health or injury or behavioural patterns. This allows staff to be alerted to any issues, potential injuries or health concerns as well as saving valuable time with communicating and coordinating across large student numbers and sporting codes.

The Baseline platform can integrate with current school systems. Students, athletes and staff can access the mobile tool and update up to 22 Baseline metrics including sleep quality, fatigue, motivation, appetite, injury related variable and stress levels for that day.

PREDICTIVE analytics is being used to gain insights into athletes’ future performance.

The use of the Internet of Things and predictive analytics in sports is rapidly growing – and is now being used to improve the long-term wellbeing and health of professional athletes, according to a prominent industry executive.

“If you look at technology over the last five years, especially the hardware to help measure performance such as heart rate monitors or GPS trackers, it’s still very much a growth market,” said Zane Hall, CEO and founder of SMG Technologies.

“Sports franchises are looking for ways to move away from traditional methods of player performance tracking and analysis, such as Excel spreadsheets, which makes it difficult for them to look back at historical data and to take forward-looking actions,” he told IoT Hub.

Hall pointed to the growing number of ex-athletes whose post-career lives were hampered by injuries sustained during careers, and then suing their former teams for not providing the appropriate duty of care.
