The Seattle Seahawks are on the forefront of player well-being, using a holistic approach that emphasizes the importance of sleep. Sam Ramsden, the Director of Player Health and Performance, contacted Fatigue Science in 2013 after learning how the Vancouver Canucks manage their extreme travel schedule using the Fatigue Science platform. Since then, the Seahawks have been maximizing the performance impact of their sleep.

“Fatigue and performance are intimately linked and sleep is one of the important variables to get right to help athletes sustain high effort and enthusiasm, for the long haul,” Ramsden and Michael Gervais, team psychologist, told Ariana Huffington during an interview on the subject of sleep and performance.
