Human performance analysis company, Sportstec, have reported a ‘significant spike in growth’ following the successful implementation of their analysis system to a host of UK universities.
Having built their reputation within the global sports sector, the human performance technology company are now working with UK Universities to help them train, develop and improve the performance and future employability opportunities of their students through the implementation of this ground-breaking technology.
Speaking about their partnership with Sportstec, Matt Robins, Senior lecturer in Biomechanics & Performance Analysis at Chichester University said: ‘SportsCode technology helps us to facilitate both our course curriculum and student work placements. From an academic perspective we use the licenses for undergraduate modules and dissertation projects within the Sports and Exercise Sciences and Physical Education and Adventure Education departments, as well as an essential tool for the delivery of our MSc sports performance analysis programme.’
Matt added: ‘It’s important to us that our students are using the most advanced analysis software and the same platforms used by industry professionals. The range of functionality allows us to up-skill our students and maximise their employability potential.’
Stuart Taylor, Senior lecturer and programme leader for secondary physical eduction at the University of St Mark & St John, Devon said: ‘We’ve found one of the strengths to the SportsCode range of products used by the university is the fact that all of the SportsCode products talk to each other allowing both the staff and students to integrate, capture, analyse and output data, irrelevant of the platform that they have been captured on. These experiences assist us in creating digitally literate graduates ready for the next step in their future vocations.’
Speaking about their recent growth in the education sector, Nick Harrison at Sportstec said: ‘As universities focus on driving the employability potential of their students, many have found it useful for students to be fluent in using the same technologies as used ‘in the field’ by industry professionals and the world most elite sports teams. Providing leading software makes the university far more appealing to a prospective student.’
Nick added: ‘Our technology gives students the background and knowledge to transfer their skills into a variety of elite level sports. However, it’s not just students studying sport that are embracing it. We are now working with many universities and training centres, aiding them to provide advanced training, knowledge and understanding for studies in healthcare, medical, teacher training and law.’
