Extruo

We utilize a mobile sensor suite to analyze key injury risk indicators to help track coaches optimize their limited time. A 3D visual representation of their athletes run is presented in a user-friendly mobile dashboard to provide them with key insights they can take action on. Our initial target are the 1,200 track and field coaches and the tens of thousands of athletes that they coach. Currently, we’ve received over $20,000 in grants and awards; we’ve also established strategic partnerships to help us with software and hardware development in the coming months.
