Apart from athletes winning medals, what is really taking over the Olympic Games in Rio this year are the digital health platforms, apps and wearables teams are using to monitor their athletes, both inside and out.
An interesting feature in MobiHealthNews reveals some of the gadgets used by athletes to gear up and improve their competitive edge during the Games.
The list is extensive and, among others, you can find special edition smartphones connected to heart rate-tracking apps, smart cycling goggles that communicate with cycling apps, sensors to give insight into the number and speed of boxing punches, virtual and augmented reality systems, neurostimulation wearables and sleep quality tracking devices that send data to trainers’ smartphones.
Digital health is definitely playing an important role during these Olympic Games. Can you imagine the role they will play in future games?
