1567: Ski Tech - Digital Ski Platform And Wearable Tech
Bode Miller, two-time overall World Cup champion and six-time Olympic medalist, recently announced his new tech venture, SKEO. The concept for the digital ski platform concept was pioneered by Martin Kawalski—CEO of Snowcookie Sports and European physician with a Ph.D. in neuroscience.
Intrigued by the idea of a smart connected ski and recurring winter ski injuries seen during his orthopedics rotations, Kawalski shifted his focus to hone in on education and preventability measures. Using a proprietary algorithm to fine-tune body position, edge control and improve safety like never before, SKEO will enable skiers of all levels to go farther and faster while mitigating risk.
Meet the physician-led Swiss startup, Snowcookie Sports. I wanted to learn more about how they invite every user to analyze and improve their skills, exchange stats, embrace safety, and enjoy their time on the slopes. I also learn more about the tech behind the digital ski platform that measures, coaches, and ranks your skiing to level up.
Martin Kawalski shares his story and talks about the free app, optional wearable sensors, and how the proprietary algorithms can propel skiers further, and faster.
