Human Performance Enhancement

Human performance can be enhanced through considered deployment of modern technologies in a wide range of domains and environments. We are working to improving the value of training delivery through technology, both by generating better data for feedback and analysis as well as by transforming the delivery of sessions themselves.

For physical, sporting, performance enhancement, we are developing unobtrusive data capture methods which can be deployed in more environments to provide feedback from the competitive scenarios where performance matters most.

For task-based performance, such as for emergency response work, we’re working to create more convincing multi-sensory virtual environments which can challenge key areas in need of development with unprecedented realism.
