English Institute of Sport and Mint Diagnostics will work together in the development of a cortisol monitoring system for sports performance

English Institute of Sport and Mint Diagnostics have signed an agreement to start the joint development of an innovative cortisol monitoring system for elite athletes. The system will leverage Mint Diagnostics biosensing technology, enabling real-time monitoring of cortisol levels for optimisation of training and performance. The results of this development are expected to open up the opportunity for more biomarkers to be included within the same real-time monitoring system, which will serve as a powerful sensing platform with application in several sports disciplines.

The project will also benefit of a cooperation with the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine at Loughborough University.
