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
We are using AthleteMonitoring to conduct injury and illness surveillance research in the Toppserien, the top division of women’s football in Norway. AthleteMonitoring plays an important role in this project, as it makes it easy for us to obtain weekly reports from players and physiotherapists, across the entire league.

An innovative approach to injury surveillance and health monitoring
Evidence-based approach, scientifically validated for use in youth, amateur, Olympic and professional athletes
Created in partnership with the Oslo Sport Trauma Research Center, an IOC Research Centre for Prevention of Injury and Protection of Athlete Health, and FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence.
Simplifies the administration of the OSTRC Questionnaire on Health Problems and related tools and statistics
Identifies 10x more health problems than conventional injury surveillance systems
Compatible with FIFA injury definition, the Sport Medicine Diagnostic Coding System (SMDCS) and the Orchard Sports Injury and Illness Classification System (OSIICS)
Athletes use the app to complete a short weekly health survey on their smartphone. They report injuries, illnesses, symptoms, time-loss, etc.
Athletes’ answers are automatically encrypted and stored into a secure database.
When health problems are detected, health practitioners are immediately notified.
Reminders are automatically sent to athletes to maximize compliance
Instant data collection, analytics and reporting
Real-time graphs, dashboards, availability tables and complete epidemiological statistics can be generated in one click
Raw anonymized data can be exported anytime
It’s an essential tool for researchers and sport organizations or all sizes
Automated alerts, EMR, complete diagnosis system
When a health problem is reported by an athlete, an alert is automatically sent to the medical staff
Health practitioners can use the built-in EMR system to immediately start the clinical follow-up, record diagnoses, clinical / SOAP notes staff, medications, and create RTS, RTP programs
Optimizing athlete care and enhancing collaboration between medical and performance teams has never been easier!
