SmartBeat-Researcher

The second project was to build a platform to allow researchers access to the massive anonymous data pool generated by the athletes and make this available to sports scientists all over the world ho were interested in doing studies at a vast scale.

Historically, performance physiology research has typically been small batches of participants, measured in labs. Wearables offer the opportunity to take the study out of the lab and scale the samples in orders of magnitude, which has massive scientific value. Wearables are obviously far off any kind of lab accuracy, but with the benefit of standard error calibration and big data, we can get insights that are complimentary to lab work, and open up entirely new avenues of research.
