Athletes are predisposed to injury when they become fatigued during practice and games.
Fatigue also reduces skills necessary to compete at an elite level. Fatigue may be mechanical, physiological or neurological in nature. Catapult enables micro-level recognition of motion and sub-optimal pattern discrimination by coaches.
Integrated heart rate monitoring with PlayerLoad provides the optimum in performance management.
Keep a fluid training model by monitoring periodisation and peak at the right time.
Know who is overworked and economise practice by removing the guesswork.
When is an athlete capable of performing at their best? There are many tools available to assess a component of the readiness of your athletes.
RPE, hydration status, sleep and wellness data all have their place, but they miss the most direct reflector of readiness: performance.
Catapult allows you to measure and track performance over time. Know when an athlete is peaking, measure when their performance is dropping, and use this objective information to prepare them for competition.
Compare athletes, sessions and weeks and stop guessing. Coaching is an art, but back up what you do with science.

Keeping athletes healthy is the single biggest challenge in the role as an athletic trainer.
Most injuries are unavoidable, but using individual athlete profiles will take the guesswork out of knowing when an athlete’s rehabilitation is complete.
Tailor athlete ‘fingerprints’ with benchmark data, monitor injured athletes remotely, and use positional comparisons to analyse asymmetries with transparent information.
Place variable limits on specific metrics and get real-time feedback if an athlete exceeds these key limits.
Justify your methods with evidence-based knowledge that will protect your athletes.
