Tracking Motion to Build a Better (and Safer) Athlete

At Innovation Summit 2018, Dr. Nan-Wei Gong of Figur8 demonstrated her wearable sensor technology. The sensor, which provides real-time neuromuscular feedback (data collected on muscle movements) can help trainers and physical therapists make micro-adjustments and small corrections in movement of athletes, dancers and others. It could also help spot and prevent opportunities for severe athletic injury. Megan LeCrone of the New York City Ballet wore and tested the sensors during a ballet performance.

What’s Next for the Innovation Summit

Glen Raven is expanding its corporate campus with plans to complete construction in time for the 2017 Innovation Summit. Paige Mullis, director of concept development at Glen Raven, sees this as an opportunity to look back at past Innovation Summit successes and use those examples to augment nest year’s range of speakers and presenters.
