Virgin Australia Supercars Championship adopts new health technology

Digital health and wellbeing club RABBLE has secured naming rights to the historic Sandown 500.

Launched in March this year, Rabble will also become the Official Health, Lifestyle and Wellbeing Partner of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

The first PIRTEK Cup endurance event will become the RABBLE.club Sandown 500, in 2018 and 2019.

The partnership brings with it an elite sports and athlete management system which will be used by medical staff, drivers, teams, marshals and volunteers.

The system records live data during training and racing. This data then feeds to the athletes, teams, trainers, allied health and medical staff who monitor how drivers are performing whilst competing and training.

The RABBLE system stores medical data in one system so any injury, allergies, blood type and critical information can be accessed at the touch of a button, anytime and anywhere.

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said the partnership was a strong addition to a sport in which drivers, in particular, have intense training regimes and challenging race conditions.

“The physical and mental challenge of racing these extremely powerful, fast, heavy and hot race cars over long periods and in intense conditions put these drivers in the elite athlete class,” Seamer said.

“This system will enhance training regimes and offer real time monitoring during racing, testing and training.

“It will help with the way they structure their training and to monitor their wellbeing in the car.

Fiona O’Keefe from RABBLE.club said the organisation was thrilled to partner with the world’s leading touring car category to support the health and wellbeing of the drivers, teams and fans.

“The drivers will all wear smart health devices, and the live data will be streamed straight through to our RABBLE platform so that teams can monitor how each individual is performing.”

Supercars Medical Delegate Dr Carl Le says the athlete management system from RABBLE will give his team greater insight to athlete safety, training and performance.

“Other than being able to look after the safety of our drivers and teams, for me the really exciting aspect of partnering with RABBLE is the platform will enable us to report on athlete data,” Dr Le said.

“We’ll be able to compare driver stats and analyse trends, develop strategies to address common issues and measure results.

“It’s going to change the way we operate from a health and wellbeing aspect.”
