OTT & Tyndall helps GRASP launch out of the starting blocks

OTT & Tyndall helps GRASP launch out of the starting blocks

  • 31 Oct 2014

Minister for Skills, Research and Innovation Damien English T.D., has launched a high-tech spinout, GRASP Wearable Technologies. Its first market-ready offering will measure running biomechanics.

Using sophisticated algorithms, GRASP will be able to provide an instantaneous three dimensional profile about a user’s stride length, vertical lift and impact. This information can be used to draw informed conclusions about a user's performance and efficiency, and can be applied to improving an athlete’s running technique and helping avoid injury, to analysing real-time player and team position and movement patterns in team sports.
