In Brabant, sport and technology go hand in hand. The difference between a silver and golden medal, on the 100 metres freestyle, is often already clear during the start of the race. On the 25th of October, Japanese and Dutch members of DUJAT (Dutch & Japanese Trade Federation) had the opportunity to see how young scientists and students support our Olympic swimming team with the latest technology. At the InnoSportLab De Tongelreep, the start of Ranomi Kromowidjojo is meticulously analyzed on 28 different monitors. This provides Ranomi and her coaches with the opportunity to analyze and improve her performance.
But also healthcare & technology form a golden duo. Holst Center in Eindhoven developed the Energy-Efficiency Health Patch, in which vital body functions can be measured wirelessly. Additionally, students at the Fontys University of Sports developed creative and user-friendly applications in order to help older people work-out in a playful way.
