The Podium data collection platform consists of 4 key areas:
One of Podium’s ambitions is to build the single most comprehensive repository of high-quality, sensitive, reliable youth sports injury information and for it to become the go-to resource for all sports injury-related stakeholders. The Podium Digital Platform allows us to collect data about sports injuries from a variety of sources to build a rich picture of each injury, through the use of intuitive apps for teachers, coaches, parents and players, the integration with other platforms such as wearables and other devices, and the use of machine learning in the collection of video and audio footage from injuries.
The Podium apps are built using the leading-edge, low-code application development environment, Outsystems, which allows Podium to build highly engaging, secure mobile apps in a rapid, iterative manner, meaning that we can be highly responsive and adapt to the needs of the teacher, the coach, the parent and the pupil. This environment also allows us to co-design mobile apps and experiences with our intended audiences. We will be working with young people in schools and colleges to help them help us design apps that they wish to engage with, in hackathons and as part of their curriculum in design and information technology.
