AI-based risk detection and recommendation platform will support medical and physio teams in athlete performance management
PALO ALTO, CA. — Zone7, the AI-driven human performance platform, and S.S.C. Napoli have today announced a strategic partnership that will see the Serie A club adopt Zone7’s platform within its medical departments.
“We are delighted to welcome Zone7 into Napoli’s operations and are proud to be a first-mover for data science adoption in Italy,” said Prof. Raffaele Landolfi, Scientific Director of the club’s medical department. “Zone7 has a highly successful track record and shares our commitment to keeping athletes in peak condition with the lowest possible threat of injury.”
The Italian club will enlist Zone7 to analyze its comprehensive collection of player data, identify undetected risk patterns, and provide practical intervention suggestions to optimize athlete performance, manage workload, and lower injury incident rates.
“We are thrilled to partner with Napoli and bring our platform to the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium,” said Tal Brown, Co-Founder and CEO of Zone7. “The club’s staff are already embracing advanced technologies to monitor player workload, strength, biomechanics and many other factors, creating a data-rich environment which is a perfect fit for our platform.”
Napoli becomes the first side from Serie A to adopt the platform, which is quickly becoming a popular asset for teams across Europe. Last year, Zone7 clients reached both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals.
