Football Player Health Apps

The TeamStudy App Monitors the Cognitive Health of Former NFL Players

A group of researchers from Harvard University developed a new app called 'TeamStudy' that can be used to monitor the changes in the bodies of professional athletes. In recent years, there has been an increasing level of concern over the effects of repeated brain trauma in professional sports. Now there is an app that can help shed light on the issue by giving athletes the power to record important health data.

The TeamStudy app allow athletes to record changes in their memory, mobility and pain tolerance. This information is measured through a series of questions and performance activities that pick up patterns in how the athlete's body is functioning. The app will also collect sensory data from the user's smartphone to provide a more comprehensive picture of the user's health.

The app is part of the ongoing Football Players Health Study at Harvard, which aims to gather more information about the long-term health of professional athletes.
Trend Themes
1. Cognitive Health Monitoring - The development of cognitive health monitoring apps for athletes create opportunities for startups to leverage technology and expand this area of healthcare.
2. Sensor-enabled Health Data - The amalgamation of data collected through different sensors in smartphones can be used to create a more comprehensive health profile, leading to opportunities for wearables and mobile health tech companies.
3. Long-term Health Research - As data is collected over a longer period of time, opportunities for pharmaceutical and biotech firms become available in order to advance research efforts on long-term athlete health.
Industry Implications
1. Healthcare Technology - Healthcare technology companies can leverage this type of health data and information to improve their understanding of patients and create tools and systems to improve health and wellness.
2. Sports Technology - Sports technology companies can integrate research and health data to create unique solutions for athletes and teams looking to measure and improve physical and cognitive performance.
3. Pharmaceutical - Pharmaceutical companies can use health data from monitoring apps to gain insights for developing treatments or medicines aimed at improving the long-term health of high-performance athletes.
