Zone7 Debuts Micro-Cycle Simulator for Coaching and Performance Professionals

...

New capability allows practitioners to configure and test different training and fitness workloads up to seven days ahead of time

PALO ALTO, CA., August 1, 2022 — Zone7, the AI-driven human performance platform, today announced the release of its micro-cycle simulator, a new product feature developed in response to demand from Zone7’s practitioner users.

Building on Zone7’s ability to provide daily injury risk forecasts, the micro-cycle simulator enables future workload projection up to seven days ahead of time; adding a new layer of control, customization and insight to daily use of the Zone7 platform.

“A big part of Zone7’s success to-date derives from the real-time feedback loop we have with our clients,” said Rich Buchanan, Performance Director. “We’ve learned that practitioners want to extend injury risk forecasts into the future using projected training workloads. Our micro-cycle simulator meets this need, while representing Zone7’s own growth as a leading, data science-based performance management tool.”

By extending the scope of future risk assessment, the micro-cycle simulator allows practitioners to proactively configure and test different training and fitness scenarios’ impact on individual player performance and injury risk. Performance staff across sports can test, hone, and optimize training plans to keep players on the field at optimal output. In addition, specific workload scenarios can be devised and simulated based on player-specific or match-specific needs each week.

“Across the professional football teams that have partnered with Zone7, we’ve seen that the information we provide towards daily decision-making can help teams reduce injury rates by 30-50%,” said Eyal Eliakim, Co-Founder and CTO. “The micro-cycle simulator is a powerful advancement that leverages the strength of Zone7’s data processing and machine learning for proactive planning.”

The news continues an active summer period for Zone7. The company was recently named as headline sponsor for the 2022 StatsBomb Conference, scheduled for September 20 at Wembley Stadium. Last week, Zone7 also announced the appointment of Ben Mackenzie, an experienced sports scientist turned software engineer and data scientist.
