Screentec has designed electrode patches for devices that are made to track athletes more accurately, even when a sports watch cannot be worn during the exercise. These wearable sensors have opened up new possibilities among the coaching staff, athletic clubs, federations, and more. A device like Movesense – a programmable Bluetooth ECG, heart rate, and movement sensor – offers a wide range of usage with glue-on electrodes that track movement, acceleration, and impact, but also details that are beneficial in healthcare, such as tracking arrhythmias and other abnormalities.
The company has been recently working together with Northern Sports Insight and Intelligence (NSII) on their ACT Head Impact Tracker’s second model.
