In MTPConnect’s 2020 Sector Competitiveness Plan, human movement and sports science is flagged as an emerging megatrend in Australia. As the digital evolution drives the growth of new digital technologies, there is a revolution underway in the field of biomechanics that could impact wellbeing and healthy ageing.

This event will explore innovations from the sector including the latest developments in wearable sensors, data analytics, augmented ability & their applications in high-performance sport, work-place injury prevention, wellbeing & rehabilitation.

If you’re exploring getting into sports science &/or interested in how sports research takes place behind the scenes, then this webinar is for you.

Joining us is A/Prof Jacqueline Alderson from the University of WA, a leading sports scientist working with elite sporting teams for 20+ years. Jacqueline will talk about developing the ‘digital twin’ model that uses Artificial Intelligence to improve an athlete’s performance by enabling researchers to perform real-time monitoring of a person’s health data & test scenarios on the data collected.

Catapult develops wearable technologies to address fundamental questions in athletes performance, management and detailed analysis. CTO Rick Wingfield, will discuss the potential of the development of integrated technologies that have a proven track record of delivering innovation & digital transformation &his experience in this space with major organisations such as Barclays, AIA, NAB & Australia Post.

Platypus Technical design solutions, perform data & analysis and specialise in applying international research, knowledge, & best practice to improving health & performance. Director and Principal, Dr Lee Walsh will discuss his experience as an engineer & medical scientist in policy & regulation in medical devices & cyber security.
