SportTechie.com reporter, Bryan Douglass, recently interviewed Fatigue Science founder, Pat Byrne, about our technology and it’s application in professional sports and human performance optimization:
The start of the NBA season has basketball fans smiling, but the rise of tech in support of better basketball has NBA owners smiling more. The influence of tech is growing, and we’ve seen more than a few headlines over the weeks leading into the 2013-14 season to prove the relationship is growing.
One of the more recent headlines comes from Dallas, where owner Mark Cuban – renowned supporter of the geek business model – has hired Fatigue Science to work with Dirk Nowitzki and the rest of the Mavericks. Founded in 2007, Fatigue Science offers services focused on “fatigue-related risk management and human performance optimization.” NBA players endure one of the most grueling schedules in professional sports, and Cuban, cognizant of the challenges his players face, is looking for a better way.
