Putrino Lab has a collaboration with the “High Performance” division of Red Bull. Our mission is to use powerful, state-of-the-art technology to enhance the performance of Red Bull-sponsored athletes.
We used non-invasive brain stimulation techniques on professional endurance athletes in order answer a single question: can we use technology to switch off the brain’s fatigue signal and take our bodies to new levels of performance?
We brought professional athletes to Death Valley, California in order to answer the question: how do differences in altitude affect muscle output and overall athletic performance?
We were tasked with answering the question: can we use low cost devices and virtual reality environments to train athletes in new and exciting ways? Equipped with a cache of equipment including a waterproofed EEG set up and an Oculus Rift we ventured to find out. Watch the video to see how it was done.
