Mindroom Sport Science & Technology Consulting

Mindroom Human Performance Lab (HPL)

The primary purpose of the HPL is to be a World Class leader in applied Sport Science research combining Mindroom expertise and external advisors with cutting edge technology to enhance human performance.

There are four major components of the Mindroom Human Performance Lab:

A) Analytics Relational Database – which addresses multiple analytic domains including player performance, player selection, injury prevention, within game player technical statistics and team tactical strategies, etc. Consequently, the Analytics team can then predict player data (e.g., turnovers, player tendencies, etc.) and team tendencies to predict what kind of tactical strategy will be most effective against specific teams (e.g., set plays, specialty teams, etc.) to gain a competitive advantage.

B) Local Position Monitoring and Physiological Status Monitoring for biometric player and team performance – These technologies and sensors (e.g., accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, heart rate monitors, etc.) are utilized by sport scientists to measure Inertial Movement Analysis (IMA) of athletes in training and competition (e.g., acceleration, deceleration, speed, etc) and the amount of the physical training and/or competitive loads. These technologies allow Teams to make predictions about performance; rest & recovery to prevent risk of injury, and optimization of training.

C) Sport Science Lab works in concert with the Sports Medicine Team to ensure the accurate tracking and monitoring of athlete training loads and recovery programs (e.g., return-to-play protocols) are optimized for peak performance. In addition, athlete biomarkers (e.g., Neuro-cognitive, Cardio, Neuro-muscular, Metabolic, Hormonal, Sleep, etc.) are tracked to assess Mindroom Athlete Readiness and Athlete Recovery Indexes for each athlete.

D) Athlete Profile Reports are then uploaded in real-time for management, coaches, scouts, and athletes, etc. Sharing data and analytics with coaches and management allows teams to:

1) Develop competitive intelligence and tactical options

2) Insight on player performance to individualize player training

3) Injury prediction by predicting patterns of player injury and prevention

4) Empower players to take ownership for their performance improvement

5) Empower management to make informed decisions

Our Executive Coaching Programs

Untitled1Mindroom Olympic Mental Toughness & Resilience Program (5-Days)

The 5-day program is designed for professionals who wish to learn cutting edge sport science programs and technologies that are used to enhance performance of Olympic athletes. Participants will learn the psychological skills and strategies utilized by Olympic athletes to gain an edge for peak performance. In addition, participants will receive an Olympic Mindroom Mental Toughness & Resilience Workbook – which consists of 22 modules that highlight the key performance skills and how to integrate them within the Yearly Training Plan. Following each section of this Mental Toughness workbook, exercises ensure individualization of the mental skills and integration within the athlete’s pre-performance routines and game plans. The Mental Toughness workbook has been individualized for the following: Olympic Individual and Team sports (e.g., Endurance Sports, Golf, Speedskating, Target Sports, Football, Hockey, etc.).

Untitled1Mindroom Self-Regulation Program (5-days)

The Mindroom Self-Regulation Program teaches athletes how to control their emotions through their physiology. Athletes will learn to control the Heart Rate (HR), Respiration Rate (RR), Skin Conductance (SC), Skin Temperature (ST) and Muscle Tension (EMG). Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is an important biomarker of health and physiological resilience to environmental demands. Participants will learn how to teach athletes skills to manage their emotions, monitor their HRV and enhance their rest & recovery strategies, attentional focus and decision-making skills.

Untitled1Mindroom Olympic Perceptual-Decision Training Course

The Mindroom 5-day Perceptual-Decision Training course is customized for professionals working in high stress environments where critical decisions are made under time pressure and on demand. This course utilizes the Mindroom 5-Step approach: Assessment, Education, Training, Simulation and Evaluation designed for either the sport-specific domain, military or investment professionals. Borrowing from perception-action coupling theory, we put athletes in simulated conditions and utilize video occlusion to force athletes to make decisions under time pressure. The coach can monitor both the athlete's quality of decision and reaction-time is measured - to render feedback at the end of the training video-simulator session. In addition, eye-tracking technology can be utilized to enhance athlete/player feedback on visual cue recognition and anticipation when working with their coaches.
A common perception is that elite athletes possess unique visual abilities that allow them to pick up visual information more effectively than their less skilled counterparts. However, research shows that the expert advantage lies in differences in visual anticipation, attention, pattern recognition, problem solving, and decision-making. As a result, perceptual-cognitive training programs have been used extensively to improve anticipation and decision-making skills of athletes. A simulator or simulated game condition in general, allows athletes, coaches and sport scientists an opportunity to observe the athlete’s progress in decision training and how they respond under pressure. Physiological status monitoring (PSM), Eye Tracking Glasses, Decision accuracy and reaction-time can all be utilize to measure decision improvement within a contextual Sport, Military or Investment environment under time pressure.
