ESPOO, Finland, June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
With new management, significant financial backing, and introduction of
wireless functionality, the developer of an innovative training guidance
solution now aims for global leadership.
The Omegawave Solution
The Omegawave training solution provides coaches and sport organizations
instantly relevant and personalized training advice on athletes.
The solution measures the functional state of an athlete's cardiac, metabolic
and central nervous systems in just two minutes while the athlete is at rest.
The Omegawave solution helps coaches to optimize training and recovery
processes, decrease the risks of overtraining and injury, and improve
athletes' performance on the field, court, or road.
Rooted in Russian sports science and space medicine, Omegawave technology was
developed in the U.S. Its patented technology was originally based on
physiological data from 10,000 high-performing athletes and has been validated
in countless studies conducted by sports and research institutes worldwide.
Already at the pre-market phase Omegawave has reached a significant reference
position with the U.S. Track & Field Olympic Committee, Olympic federations
worldwide, premier European football teams such as Manchester United and FC
Barcelona, and various American NFL, NHL, MLB, and MLS teams.
Aiming for global leadership
Omegawave now starts the global commercializing of its technology. As a first
step, Omegawave introduces wireless functionality for its measurement
"Our new wireless application allows a full team to be assessed in even half
an hour, compared to days it took with conventional methods in labs. We are
also investing heavily in consumer applications and aim for a global leading
position in both professional and consumer markets. Omegawave is the next
generation of sports performance monitoring and readiness measurement for
people who take sports seriously," says Juha Pinomaa, CEO of Omegawave.
