Oppia Performance: In-depth Performance Analysis Using Technology

Anton Willert Brams, Founder
Performance and strength of an athlete play a major role in the outcome of a sporting event. A former athlete himself, Anton Willert Brams always had the urge to address the issues coaches and athletes faced while analyzing the complex performance related data of individuals or teams. Brams is of the opinion that legacy approaches prove to be more of a hurdle than tools that help the concerned individuals in deciphering the big amount of data involved in the analysis. “Providing an in-depth performance analysis and explanation of every variable to coaches and teams can improve the performance of athletes,” says Brams, Founder, Oppia Performance.

PerformancePro, the ultimate coaching tool to drive decisions is intuitive and provides information that can be utilized to improve sports performance

With headquarters in Brabant, Belgium, Oppia Performance is the brainchild of Brams. For more than ten years, Oppia has been working with the leading experts in the field of performance analysis. The team at Oppia over the years, has identified the existing performance measurements and developed a set of never used before performance indicators. These essential variables include psychology factor, conditioning, technique, tactics, and strategy amongst others. This resulted in state of the art performance analysis software, PerformancePro, a solution for in-depth high performance analysis. The easy and understandable data analytics software allows one to import scouting data from any source and turns that data into action. PerformancePro compares and analyzes the data to showcase the athletes’ strengths and weaknesses. The analytics are presented in a simple format thus offering a strategy report in a very short period of time.
Moreover, the software also allows the customers to customize the solution according to their needs.

The software also has a feature called HeatMaps, which portrays insights in the form of visuals. Brams explains, “Visual cues are easier and faster to remember and athletes can execute necessary strategy faster.” The company has also made it possible to install micro chips in sports devices such as discus to measure acceleration, location of the device amongst others. Each movement can be analyzed and visual feedback can be obtained in an iPad with the use of this acceleration logger. “PerformancePro, the ultimate coaching tool to drive decisions, is intuitive and provides information that can be utilized to improve sports performance,” adds Brams.

Oppia Performance strives for continuous improvement with the services they offer. Such dedication has helped Oppia’s clients succeed in their endeavors. For instance, after embracing the software, the U.S. Olympic volleyball team exhibited significant improvement in their performance. The analysis provided and advanced preparation helped the men’s team to win the World League 2014. In another instance, after employing the solution, the women’s team made history by winning their first World Championship. Similarly, the use of the acceleration logger in practice and training helped Germany to win Olympic gold medal in discus throw. Many other clients have also been benefited by the use of the software. In depth performance analysis and easy-to-use solution help athletes gain an edge over the opponents with the well defined information and effective strategy.
