UCD Spinout Company Helps Athletes Optimise Their Training During COVID-19 Isolation

The sports technology start-up Output Sports has developed a single wearable sensor that enables athletes to track multiple components of their performance and share their training data with their coaches via an app.

The value of the company’s Output // Capture technology is underscored by current circumstances, in which athletes have had to adapt their training programmes to comply with social distancing requirements. Many are now training at home and being coached remotely.

Among the athletes using the system are Paralympic swimmer Nicole Turner and Leinster Rugby’s Adam Byrne and Dave Kearney.

Output Sports was founded in 2018 as a spinout from the UCD School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sports Science and is headquartered at NovaUCD in Belfield.
