HEALTHPOD is a platform that connects consumers with personal trainers and nutritionists for a 1-2-1 consultancy video-call. Consumers receive personalised meal and workout plans, tailored to their needs and the

ongoing support they need to succeed; coaches can monetise free time and increase their income. Tom Sheppey launched the company after

rupturing a disk in his spine which caused temporary paralysis of his lower body. “Finding the right professional support to

start exercising again was a major challenge and cost a fortune. My experience reflects that of millions of people in the UK. Whether you’re recovering from injury, trying to lose weight, training for an event or just looking to get healthier, people are failing to get the support they need to get active and stay active,” he says “That’s why we started HealthPOD, a

fit-tech business offering on-demand virtual consultations with highly qualified fitness coaches.” HealthPOD provides people with

expertise whenever, wherever they need it by connecting them to the right coach for them. They can video call them as much or as little as they need to ensure they’re following the right advice and sticking to it.


PLAYERMAKER is a performance intelligence platform that help coaches to maximise football players’ potential. The product is based on a discrete boot mounted motion sensor that tracks and analyses all technical, tactical and physical player performance indicators, including distance and speed, time to release, pass completion and passing network. Committed to machine learning, gate-

tracking, biomechanical load and accuracy, the solution offers an instant and actionable feedback. Detecting every interaction on and off the ball, PlayerMaker allows for the creation of a database of insights to enhance coaching strategies and increase player development at an exponential rate. The data generated provides a unique


assessment of each players’ performance in varying situations, uploaded to the cloud following the session - accessible to both coach and player alike. The dataset can additionally be exported and integrated into video, generating short clips that enable self- debriefing as well as more in-depth coaching support to optimise the game. In this way, PlayerMaker allows coaches and managers to monitor the details of their team’s performance and objectively identify gaps for improvement. PlayerMaker commercialised last

November and started piloting the product in Israel and the UK in January 2018. It is now used in five countries.
