Sparta Science is an international, industry-leading solution for reducing injuries that are orthopedic in nature, and optimizing sports and exercise performance with validated scientific assessments. Within the Sparta Science platform, coaches and trainers at training facilities like Kovacs Performance Institute can analyze objective data alongside other metrics such as workouts, HRV, accelerometry, game stats and lifestyle factors such as sleep, stress levels and nutrition to get a full picture of the athlete’s health.
With Sparta and the Sparta Scan, Kovacs Institute can get objective measures about each of their athletes, their development and ongoing health and wellness assessment. They can measure if an athlete is ready to get back on the field after an injury, prevent injury relapse, and help reduce injuries such as ACL and Hamstring tears, and Lisfranc injuries.
