Michigan Patent of the Month – August 2022

Getting proper feedback is crucial to athletic training. This feedback helps guide our form, correcting mistakes to prevent injury, and can also indicate if training intensity needs to be modified. With advancing biometric technology, this data and feedback can be captured in incredible detail. Sports Data Labs, Inc. has recently built their own biological data tracking system, browser-backed and supported by wearable sensors.

This venture-backed company combines real-time human data with patented data analytic systems to unlock the true value of this data. With this capability, the technology can be used to power new insights and predict outcomes. The use of biofeedback technology and AI data transformation can turn any user health data into metrics, insights and predictions to power real time & on-demand use cases.

The biological data tracking system connects a variety of wearable sensors to their browser-based software, collecting and storing data as it’s received. Wireless sensors allow the athlete to run and move as needed without impeding the quality of the data. This patented data tracking system is then supported by the company’s other patented technology including medical-grade sensors capable of generating heart rate values, artificial data generation, prediction systems, simulations systems and more. This innovative technology has led to the company’s successful reign as the 2020 Early Stage Startup of the Year and shortlisted for the 2021 Best Elite Performance Technology and 2022 Capgemini Innovation of the Year as awarded by Sports Technology Awards.
