“SEI has so far created an early prototype, and has plans for an advanced version to be ready for further testing later this year. The sole of the shoe features adjoined circular springs made of flexible polymer—dubbed the “goat’s head” both for its shape and for WPI’s mascot. The springs will remain rigid and transmit force for athletic performance up until a certain point. When the force reaches a potentially injurious threshold, the springs then begin to absorb it instead.

“You can store the energy in the spring at a constant rate as opposed to an increasing rate,” Brown said, adding: “The shoe recovers before you can put your foot down again, so it’s back into its original configuration. And the player might not even know that they’ve been protected by the shoe.”

Brown was an All-American skier at the University of Vermont in the 1970s. His racing experience informed his post-doc engineering research in the materials department at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Among his endeavors there was a project that culminated in a presentation to the International Society for Skiing Safety in 1983 about how to prevent ACL injuries in skiers.

The recent leg injuries suffered by star athletes such as the Warriors’ Kevin Durant (torn Achilles) and Klay Thompson (torn ACL), and Duke’s Zion Williamson (knee sprain) have all occurred when their feet have pushed off against the hardwood of the basketball court. All three could perhaps have avoided those significant injuries through a commercial offshoot from the research labs of Worcester Polytechnic Institute.”

We are now hitting the road to visit municipalities, organizations and companies in Sweden with the aim to inspire to go even more digital within sports, health and outdoor! Ragunda municipality was first out in June, to be followed by Braecke municipality and invited companies in the ski-tunnel in Braecke in August.
More to come 🙂

190711 First prototype app to support Swedish athletes in 2020 Tokyo Olympics ready!

The first prototype of the Swedish Olympic Committes “Feedback App” for atheletes has been launched in an internal test-flight. The app will support the athletes in climate change, sleep and changing of hours to optimize the ability to represent Sweden in the most competitive way. The android version will be tested during the Summer, followed by the ioS version during Fall. Also parasport will be included. We are very happy[]
