Muscle analytics for elite sports

Published: 14 November 2022

Dr Devon Lewis, a PhD researcher in Neuroscience at Southampton, has launched his own business, Inpulse, to give sports teams the ability to monitor muscle fatigue during training sessions so undertrained muscles can be improved and overtrained muscles can be flagged before they lead to injuries.

Injuries can end athletes’ careers in an instant. Sports teams need the ability to monitor the health and performance of their players muscles during every training session so they can identify issues before injuries occur. We developed the world’s first wearable sensor that directly monitors muscle fatigue and we’re working with 7 Premier League football teams to get their players back to peak performance faster without risking further injuries.
