Evidence-based Injury and Illness Surveillance
Better injury prevention, athlete care and research starts here
Built in collaboration with the
Many health problems are undetected
Inadequate injury surveillance is a major issue
Numbers are alarming
Every year, preventable sports injuries and sport related illnesses affect millions of athletes, of all ages and levels. Previous injuries are the #1 risk factor of new injuries. Prevention and early detection of health problems is essential, and it relies on accurate injury surveillance
Impacts are huge
Health problems have a direct impact on athlete performance, short and long term participation, team performance and individual well-being. These also often lead to chronic health problems, increased health spending and costly lawsuits
Current systems are inadequate
Most injury surveillance systems only track health problems that result in time-loss or medical attention. As many health problems don’t result in time loss, and many athletes don’t report health problems to medical practitioners, many illnesses and injuries remain undetected. This results in flawed injury data and sub-optimal prevention strategies
We can help!
AthleteMonitoring offers a better injury surveillance solution. Built upon the OSTRC Questionnaire on Health Problems, the most accurate injury surveillance methodology available today, it is athlete-centered, health practitioner-friendly and can detect x10 more health problems than conventional injury surveillance systems
An injury is any physical complaint sustained by a player that results from a match or training session, irrespective of the need for medical attention or time loss from football activities

"As a coach, AthleteMonitoring give me unique insight into not only players injuries, illness and training and match load but gave us unique insight into other areas of their psychology that usually we don’t know. It is a wonderful tool."

"Having available athletes is a key focus in our mission statement for the 35th Americas Cup. The AthleteMonitoring app has enabled us to efficiently record and analyse how our athletes feel on a day to day basis and how they react to training load. Our athletes find it easy to use and we find it easy to access athlete readiness. I have used other apps and Excel versions before but Francois and his team have created a cost efficient user friendly version that is the best I have used to date. They are always on hand to discuss data analysis and are open to change allowing coaches to recommend changes that would benefit their personal requirements & needs. This approach to helping coaches tailor their data collection is a breath of fresh air and has made our decision to use Athlete Monitoring beyond worthwhile."
Ben Williams Head of Human Performance, INEOS TEAM UK
"We objectively track day-day performance changes across a range of physical readiness tests and also track training loads at an individual level. Francois and his team are readily available to provide assistance and are extremely proactive in discussing and implementing future additions and adjustments to the monitoring system so it continues to provide a simple, time efficient method of monitoring a professional sports team.
