Fatigue Science co-founder, Pat Byrne, recently spoke with the Irish Examiner’s Michael Moynihan about the link between sleep and athletic performance and how Fatigue Science technology is helping professional sports teams connect these dots.
He tells Michael that fatigue in sports is not “subjective” and points out that coaches and trainers should start with good objective data and metrics:
“We work with teams around the world, and what we tell them is that for many years, sleep and fatigue were analysed subjectively, but now there are easy and objective ways to measure how it helps performance. Once you have solid information, it helps to make good decisions.” Pat says, “We’ve been doing this for years in North America with the NFL, the NHL and the NBA.”
