The 2016 Rio Olympic games as with the previous games was a great platform for many tech companies to showcase their latest developments. There are radar and camera technologies that capture motion/biomechanics of an athlete on the field and in the pool. There are wearable devices that (also) track motion plus monitor physiological parameters 24/7. They aim to positively… Read More Tracking & Managing Anxiety In Athletes
At the most recent wearable technology conference in Melbourne, we had speakers from industry and industry all weighing in on the latest developments of wearables. I had as conference chair the at times challenging task of facilitating an emerging debate on whether ‘product’ should be rushed to market, or first scientifically validated and then released to market. Not… Read More Validate Or Get It To Market?
We wrote the following piece for Telit’s Internet of things executive handbook it was nice to take a broader view of the context of what’s happening in sport. James, DA.

I was asked recently to undertake an economic forecast of wearable technologies. Not only is it interesting, but it also the bread and butter of SABEL Labs so its kind of useful to know where it’s all going. I was astounded to learn its a $US7B industry already and growing. One of the challenges is… Read More Wearable Technology – An Economic Forecast
One of the things we keep an eye upon is the wearable technology space and we recently came across this latest innovation from Leatherman. Leatherman is the innovator that brought us the multitool wave of innovation after the swiss army knife. A leatherman is a popular engineer/techs tool, often doubling as a belt mounted fashion accessory… Read More Wearable Tech – Old School Redesigned
