KINEXON and Firstbeat Sports have announced a cooperation between their innovative platforms. All Firstbeat’s internal load metrics will be imported into the KINEXON App and can be fully analysed after each session via an automated API. It is also possible to connect the KINEXON sensors directly to the Firstbeat sensors for analyses in real-time.

Data-integration

Firstbeat heartrate data integration into KINEXON app Karl Matyschiok, Senior Product Owner KINEXON: Importing the Firstbeat specific metrics on internal load, and combining them with our metrics on external load, adds even more context to our data. Our clients get a complete picture of the individual load of each of their players, therefore helping to improve their performance and lower the risk for injuries. We are very happy to have teamed up with such a great partner. Veli-Pekka Kurunmäki, Firstbeat Director of Sports Performance Products: In modern coaching, technology plays a big role. As the possibilities and potential for player tracking are unlimited, it is important to form ecosystems which really streamline the data flow for coaches. The API integration with KINEXON provides Firstbeat Sports users with a new dimension to inspect relationships between internal and external load and a deeper understanding on player physiological profiles. Amongst the clients already using the integrated Firstbeat and KINEXON systems to their advantage are the German Ice Hockey Federation DEB. Karl Schwarzenbrunner, DEB National Coach for Science and Education: We are looking forward to the integration of our Firstbeat data into the KINEXON tracking system and expect to get even more detailed analyses of our athletes.”Stefan Schaidnagel, DEB Sports Director adds: A combination of the KINEXON position data and the Firstbeat Sports system was very important to us in the preliminary considerations for our future game and player analyses in order to respond even more individually to our squad athletes. The implementation of sports technologies is another advancement in professionalization for us.”
