Athlete Intelligence And Insurance Companies Take A Step Towards Safer Student-Athletes
Munich RE Insurance Teams up with Athlete Intelligence to Offer Insurance Subsidy Discount to Promote Head-Health Safety in High School Sports.
Athlete Intelligence, along with Munich Reinsurance America, Inc., one of the industry’s leading re-insurers, have teamed up in a targeted approach to help high school programs improve the head-safety and performance of student-athletes in contact and collision sports.
Athlete Intelligence is a leading head impact monitoring and performance tracking platform that uses wearable technology to track the location, quantity, and severity of each head-impact sustained during a game or practice. The data is then transmitted either in real-time, or downloaded after an event where automated reports are sent to the Athletic Training and Coaching staff. These reports help staff members identify performance trends and often highlight new opportunities where technique adjustments can be made.
“The ability to collect data that informs the coaches on what to teach and reteach to the team or individuals is exceptional,” noted Bryan Streleski, Director of Athletics for the Bethel School District. “To collect data during practice and use that information is a huge factor in player safety.”
Head-Impact Monitoring is still an emerging technology for some sports teams, but it is the value through actionable reporting which helps set Athlete Intelligence as a product of choice for many teams.
“Our technology captures the invisible data around every player and transmits it to the sideline,” said Jesse Harper, CEO of Athlete Intelligence. “The information empowers players, parents and coaches with the knowledge they need to help improve technique and reduce the risk of injuries on the field.”
“Athlete Intelligence and its cutting edge technology is a good fit for our clients–school districts and municipalities–as they work towards solutions to address traumatic brain injury among all high school athletes,” noted Brian Viscusi, Head of Client Underwriting for Alternative Market, Specialty Insurance, Munich Reinsurance America, Inc.
Athlete Intelligence offers various product options depending on sport and features or functions. The ability to offer options has allowed Athlete Intelligence to be a resource of choice for many youth, high school, and top NCAA level programs.
“Working with Athlete Intelligence allowed us to show our players the importance of keeping their heads up and out of contact. When they have a visual of where contact with their helmet happens, it gives our staff another tool to stress safety on the field,” noted Spanaway Lake High School Coach John Robak.
