The Sports and military performance institute
The Sports and Military Performance Institute is a collaborative effort between the USC CBC and the USC Institute for Creative Technologies. It is a performance research laboratory dedicated to developing state-of-the-art military and athletic performance solutions which are at the intersection of sports, science, and health. The Institute establishes and standardizes body worn wearable and minimally invasive implantable sensors and software-based training tools/procedures that enhance physical and mental performance, resilience and overall health awareness (REFS). Our unique integration of medicine, technology and elite athletic training enables us to expand the maximum performance potential of warfighters, veterans and athletes while also propelling them to reach their peak physical and mental capabilities.
