Major League Lacrosse Signs Kinduct Software to Track Player Health Data

Major League Lacrosse has signed a data analytics deal with software company Kinduct. The partnership will allow MLL to track player injuries and medical records from the time a player enters the league. Kinduct’s platform can also integrate health information from various wearable technology applications.

Kinduct’s Athlete Management System can track workout results, sleeping patterns, recovery processes, and other biometric data points. The system acts something like an electronic medical record for athletes. After collecting all available data, Kinduct calculates a “total wellness score” for each athlete.
