Athlete performance is predicated upon workload management and injury prevention. It is requisite that professional athletes who compete at the highest levels maintain strict physical fitness standards. Injuries are inevitable in professional sports, but the severity of those injuries can be limited with the use of data and analytics.
In sports, teams collect player data from a variety of sources including motion capture cameras and wearable technologies. They evaluate body mechanics and indicators of stress including heart rate, metabolic rate, and even sleep data. This data is used to create a profile of each player to become a predictor of workload management needs and injury prevention. A player with high stress and a lower metabolic rate is more likely to be fatigued and become injured than a player who is well rested. This data enables predictions about player performance, which in turn empowers coaches and team management to best utilize their players and make more informed game strategy decisions.
The same kind of approach happens in healthcare. Care teams evaluate patient data to make informed decisions about the efficacy of a treatment plan or the need for further intervention. In the case of a cardiac patient, a healthcare provider may conduct a stress test where a patient is attached to monitoring devices examining their heart rate, respiration, and blood pressure while the patient exerts effort on either a treadmill or stationary bike. The healthcare provider will study the data output and determine if a course of treatment is sufficient or if further intervention and more advanced procedures are recommended.
