Amazing Technology Supporting Disabled People in Sport

Sports Technology Evens the Playing Field for Disabled Athletes

The Sports Techie community blog champions the use of sports tech for the disabled athlete worldwide. I am not keen on using the term ‘disability’ or ‘handicapped’ and neither are England Athletics. Instead, there are more respectful and understanding words and terms to use. Accessibility for disabled sports people has improved considerably thanks to the invention of several new technologies. For some people, technology is the only way that they are able to continue doing what they love or even find new passions. Take what a wheelchair or prosthetic leg can do for a runner, sprinter or walker, as an example. This is a real human triumph that should be both acknowledged and celebrated...

Ancient Games Evolves As “Pathway to Paralympics” – Infographic

Sports Technology and Big Data have evolved right alongside the Olympic Games since the Roman Empire banned it some 1600 years ago. The Sports Techie community blog breaks down the “Pathway to Paralympics” Infographic in order to appreciate its place in sport and sports tech history.
