Headquartered at NovaUCD, Output Sports is a start-up that aims to optimise sports performance by using advanced signal processing and machine learning techniques. The company develops wearables for exercise, that can be analysed by strength coaches, rehab professionals and athletes, offering them reliable analysis in a user-centric, fully integrated system. Founded by Dr Darragh Whelan, Dr Martin O’Reilly and Julian Eberle, the company wants to change the way that coaches optimise their athletes’ performance. The technology has already been adopted by physiotherapists working for Bath Rugby and sports scientists working for Dublin GAA. In 2019, the company bagged €20,000 at the Seedcorn competition, where it was named best early-stage start-up.
