Halifax health-technology company Kinduct Technologies announced Wednesday it has signed five professional sports teams and two NCAA colleges to use the Kinduct Performance product.
The Performance product is an athlete management system that helps organizations that work with elite athletes find the information they need. The software helps these organizations collect, organize, share and analyze data in one centralized platform, leading to more informed decisions.
The company headed by Travis McDonough has been active lately, announcing a partnership earlier this month with sports analytics company STATS.com and buying Vancouver-based HealthMet Technologies last summer.
Kinduct said in a statement it has been working in the past year with some key clients to enhance their training program tools and content to meet the needs of elite strength and conditioning coaches and athletes. These enhancements were a critical factor in signing the seven new clients, it added.
“Kinduct has done a fantastic job with the enhancements to their strength and conditioning applications,” Reg Grant, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach for the New York Rangers, said in the company’s statement. “We have looked at a number of different platforms. Kinduct’s commitment to innovation and making their product better every day has produced the best solution and delivery team on the market.”
The company also recently enhanced its strength and conditioning module called ATP, or Advanced Training Programs. The module allows strength coaches to create custom program templates using their own workout sessions. When building these programs, coaches can select from Kinduct’s library of exercise videos, or they can upload their own.
Kinduct will have a large presence next week at the NHL Combine in Buffalo where it will meet with general managers, trainers and performance coaches from across the league.
“The feedback we have been receiving from our professional sport clients in the NHL, NBA, NFL, and MLB has been extremely positive so far,” said McDonough in the statement. “Our new tool has helped head trainers and performance coaches deliver highly intuitive player and position specific programming in a manner not seen before in the industry.”
