A ground breaking technology for performance enhancement of youth athletes
Redefining the Future of Sport
BAUSport™ by SonicBone is an Innovative ultrasound-based device for evaluating Skeletal Age (Biological or Bone Maturation) and providing Final Adult Height Prediction of young athletes.
The BAUSport™ is a small and user-friendly device that performs a safe, non-invasive, radiation-free, reliable and quick measurement. It provides real time, accurate, digital and AI generated results. As it is radiation free there is no limit to how often young athletes can be tested.
Measurements are performed on three locations in the left hand:
The BAUSport™ is utilizing greater and more diverse assessment sites (e.g., radius, ulna, carpals, phalanges) in order to provide more reliable and valid estimates of Skeletal Age readings.
In research studies the BAUSport™ system has demonstrated better results compared to other invasive and somatic methods, due to its innovative ultrasound technology.
BAUSport™ is currently being used across a variety of sports and is a one-of-a-kind measurement tool that is changing and excelling the design, implementation and evaluation of training and conditioning programs of youth athletes.
The clinically validated BAUSport™ was designed to replace the current conventional methods of Bone Age assessments which are all X-Ray based and carry many deficiencies
BAUSport™ serves as a groundbreaking supportive tool for Coaches, scientists & other sports’ professionals, by enabling them to apply more scientifically-based criteria and tested data in the development and training of young athletes.
Evaluation and Monitoring of Growth and Maturation, was never this easy!
BAUSport™ Transforms the Future of training
BAUSport™ enables a paradigm shift in sports science and medicine supporting the training of Young Athletes
BAUSport™ serves as an important supportive tool to coaches, physicians, sports’ scientists & other sports’ professionals, enabling them to apply more scientifically-based criteria and tested data in:
Talent Identification & Selection
BAUSport™ enables an accurate skeletal maturity assessment which is crucial when evaluating young athletes’ maturation status. This provides sport trainers and scouts vital information to better identify and assess new talents.
This will also allow identification of late developed players, and thus a better chance to be identified & selected, overcoming the “Maturity Bias” found in youth sports.
BAUSport™ measurements can help indicate which specific playing positions young athletes are more suited for.
Determination of Maturation Timing & Status
BAUSport™ evaluates and displays all relevant data regarding maturation timing and status of every measured athlete.
Identifying Early / On-Time / Late maturers as well as pre / post / circum puberty stages thus enabling the most holistic and homogenic overview of youth athletes to better support their professional development.
The optimal development of young athletes is contingent upon a sound knowledge and awareness of child development. Accordingly, experts advise that private or national governing bodies implement practical and effective policies/procedures for the assessment and monitoring of growth and maturation in young athletes. Additionally, they advise that it is important to educate coaches, sports scientists, and medical practitioners on the subject of physical development in youth.
BAUSport™ helps to identify and determine the Early/On-Time/Late matures, which is vital for adjusting individual training programs, including intensity, duration, volume & type for maximizing the potential in development of skills for each young athlete.
Reducing Injury risks
Identifying when athletes enter maturation stages associated with heightened injury risks.
Determining the Peak Height Velocity Period, in which young athletes are most vulnerable and susceptible to injuries, in order to accurately adjust their training loads, types and durations to reduce injury risk.
Upon accurately detecting an athlete in their growth spurt period of the “danger zone”, the BAUSport™ device displays a “Red Flag” in real time. This provides coaches with real time information in order to consider adjustment to his/her training loads and programs.
In order to reduce injury risks, sports academies should regularly assess young athletes’ maturity, as the burden of injuries varies with maturation status and timing. Now this is possible with BAUSport™.
Final Adult Height Prediction
Children differ greatly in the rate at which they pass through the various phases of growth. Some have a rapid tempo of growth and attain adult status at a relatively early age. Others have a slow tempo and finishes growing relatively late. A child’s height at any age reflects both how tall he will ultimately become and how advanced he is towards that final stature.
BAUSport™ provides real-time Final Adult Height Prediction of young athletes, based on their up-to-date individual measured data.
This may also help determine which role in the team is most suitable for them.
Evaluation on Routine Basis
For the first time ever, this one-of-a-kind Ultrasound-based technology enables ongoing and frequent measurements, and provides the most accurate evaluations of young athletes’ maturation status, as well as detecting the growth spurt period in particular.
Most Suitable Solution for Bio-Banding
Enabling grouping of young athletes on the basis of attributes associated with growth and maturation rather than their chronological age (i.e. Bio-Banding), for training and for competition purposes.
