Startup Creates Virtual Reality Tech To Help Premier League Clubs

Manchester-based virtual reality startup Mi-Hiepa Scout launched new technology "aimed at helping football clubs keep their squads in top form," according to Richard Bell of BDAILY. Mi-Hiepa Scout, created through a joint venture between developer Mi and sports data company Hiepa, designed a system to "help with rehabilitating players and securing fresh talent." The company said that it worked with Premier League clubs, physiotherapists and sports scientists to develop the VR technology and is "preparing for a full roll out this season." Mi-Hiepa Scout’s system "uses a proprietary limb tracking mechanism that analyses the movement of a player’s feet and shins independently in 3D" (BDAILY, 9/19).
