Two members of the Galway Senior Hurling Management team are behind the technology.
A new app and software platform called Actimet has been launched, which will help sports clubs to return to play safely after Covid 19.
Actimet is a mobile app that simplifies coach and athlete communications by allowing athletes to enter subjective information such as their temperature, wellness, training effort, gym session effort, as review schedules, and receive notes sent by their coach.
Actimet Head of Operations Rory McGauran: “Managing the wellness of players in any sport is essential, but because of Covid19 it can no longer be taken for granted. In most sports coaches only see their players for a short period of time each week. We have built an app that allows players to log their own training, diet, and wellness information - then the coaches can review it and make informed decisions.”
Actimet was founded in 2019 by Galway Hurling’s fitness coach Lukasz Kirszenstein, and Head of Performance Analysis Rory McGauran and software engineer Edward Kaschula.
First piloted by Galway Hurling and Corofin, Actimet is now used by over 150 clubs and teams from numerous sports, schools, and third-level institutions including the All Ireland Club Champions both ladies and men's football and camogie.
Rory McGauran joined Michael D. McAndrew on Sunday Sport today to discuss the app in more detail.
