Injury and Illness Surveillance

Better injury prevention, athlete care and research starts here

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

-Football Association Medical Assessment
and Research Centre (F-MARC)

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 Classification System (OSICS-10)

Injury surveillance approach recommended by the International Olympic Committee (IOC)

App-based, athlete-centered

 

Athletes use the app to complete the OSTRC questionnaire weekly on their smartphone

Answers and comments are automatically encrypted and stored into our secure database

Health practitioners can immediately access and review reported data

SMS 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!
