This week's episode of Start Up the Science features Tanya Colonna and Hobey Tam of BlackTop Labs.
BlackTop Labs is set to become the new standard of care in personalized athletic training optimization. Their first product is a patent-pending diagnostic decision-making tool that bridges the current technology gap between standard data collection techniques and personalized care with advanced micro-electronics and smart system integration technology. Currently, physical therapists and athletic trainers are bound to generalized training methods. BlackTop Labs' technology is the first medical-grade tool of its kind to measure the patient’s neuromuscular response to treatment while seamlessly integrating into the clinical workflow, adding a major, currently overlooked dimension to decision-making.
INAM met BlackTop Labs through this year's AdMaCamp program where they walked away with the Best Pitch prize. Their story of how they began their startup journey is truly captivating and we hope you find it as intereting as we did!
They are currently looking for the following:
Angel investors and accelerator programs with a focus on Sports Technology/connected athletes
Anyone who works with strength training – powerlifters, body builders, CrossFitters, or general strength and conditioning coaches that are interested in hearing more about our product and potentially beta testing our product at the end of this year
Research Institutes that have a heavy focus on human movement science, exercise physiology, orthopedic rehabilitation, and neurological diseases like Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, and ataxia.
If you fall into one of these categories, email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly put you in touch with the team personally.
