In a matter of months, we created a solution that gathers, aggregates, and analyzes the organization’s wearables data automatically and displays it via a dashboard that offers an easy-to-understand profile of the unit’s cognitive and physical readiness. Previously, much of that work was done manually and was highly time-consuming. By automating it, we freed more time for cognitive and physical performance coaches to work directly with the unit’s personnel.
The feature-rich dashboard presents commanders with actionable, red-yellow-green scorecards that assess more than two dozen key performance metrics for individuals and entire units. Taken together, the metrics offer a comprehensive profile of the unit’s cognitive and physical health, assessing factors such as heart-rate variability, nutritional intake, current fitness habits, stress, and pain levels. Other assessments include short- and long-term memory, auditory recall, Army Combat Fitness Test measures, body composition analysis, and sleep profiles.
Human performance experts use the dashboard to develop personalized plans to help warfighters recognize signs of potential problems and develop effective responses to various conditions and stimuli. Consistent monitoring through the dashboard and early intervention have rendered effective programming solutions to mitigate the risk of injury.
