As a sports person, coach or manager, you always want top performance. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to look for more performance and that is where COLLINS LIMITED can help. Bringing our research and scientific approach to the track or water, pitch or field, we can suggest new avenues by which to get more from your human resource.
Extreme physical output requires understanding the athlete and how to get the most from them. Through logging all possible data on an athlete, advanced data analysis tools can be used to provide insights into the best training and preparation strategies for maximum performance. Understanding the athlete’s power output is possible with many of the electronic sensors found in motorsport, COLLINS LIMITED can fit or develop a sensor package suitable to the needs of the equipment and athlete. Strategies for power output during a race or training can be developed to maximise current abilities or improve future performance.
We can use new ‘big data’ methods to log both objective and subjective data on influential factors such as diet, sleep patterns and health/fitness: any factors that can be combine to produce that last good or bad result can be understood against a backdrop of big data. Greater understanding come from analysing multiple data sources and allow measures put in place for future.
Could your equipment could be improved? Modern materials, design and analysis techniques can target a better optimised design or athlete customisation. Our motorsport background allows COLLINS LIMITED to offer ultra-light and rigid carbon fibre design to custom profiles, targeting exactly the bike, boat or board you need. Further if some flex is required, we have the capacity to test and study the perceived ‘best in class’ equipment, quantify it and design equipment to give the exact right feel with minimum weight. We encourage our clients to discuss and explore new options with us for weight and stiffness, as occasionally the current ‘state of the art’ is a phase that is ripe for a new way thinking.
In every sport, the prevailing wisdom goes through periodic sea-changes. Tennis racquets that were once laminated wood are now lightweight composite materials; cyclists once upright are now positioned for low aerodynamic drag; swimmers that once felt a rubber head cap was enough now have shark-skinned body suits. These changes occur when bold athletes are introduced to those with the skill to bring new ideas to life. COLLINS LIMITED strives to push boundaries and imagine with you the next big game-changer in your sport and develop it with you.
Perhaps you have a world record you think needs to be beaten or an obstacle un-jumped. You’d like to put a stunt together and you know there’s a lot to it. Safety will be of critical importance, you’ll likely need to arrange the space and equipment required. It will be a spectacle and you will want recognition for your work and the sponsors you’ve approached. COLLINS LIMITED can study the feasibility of your proposal and from there produce a plan of attack. We will conduct all relevant simulations from the perspective of safety for the competitor and any spectators to the event, to give you the assurance the plan can go ahead with minimal risk. Your endeavour may require specially reinforced equipment or temporary installations such as ramps and we are well placed to design and create these components. With our partners in cinematic production we have experience providing video recording and production services, managing the full record of your project.
