While the rest of the SEC tries to catch up with the Alabama dynasty, the school continues to do its best to stay ahead of the pack with the help of cutting-edge technology.
On Thursday, it was announced that the Crimson Tide performance staff will be embracing Rise Science in an effort to improve their “health, wellness and performance” through the company’s sleep improvement program.
Leon Sasson, CTO and Co-Founder of Rise Science, made it a point to say that Alabama doesn’t sleep on sleep, trying different things to help in that area. However, the school was attracted to the fact that Rise Science’s method doesn’t require “wearables” to collect valid sleep and recovery info.
This news comes just two weeks after Rise Science, which is based out of Chicago, announced that Clemson was joining its list of clients. A dozen NFL and Power 5 football teams were added this season, including Oklahoma State.
The company’s “comprehensive sleep training program” is designed for elite athletic organizations and functions as a “part-human, part-digital sleep coach.”
It works with the use of force sensors placed under a mattress. The data gathered from that helps estimate recovery levels by measuring heart-rate variability, and personalized sleep plans are also recommended.
Rise Science claims that its technology can also help cut down on injuries, both with its info and feedback.
