Sparta Scans are used to identify strengths and weaknesses in athletes during scouting and recruiting. The Sparta System compares individuals to a database of their peers to project performance potential and identify injury risks.
The speed of the Sparta Scans promotes frequent assessing and creates consistent, longitudinal data that helps identify abnormal changes and patterns of muscular fatigue. Fatigue related injury risks are identified proactively, allowing athletes and staffs to proactively adjust programs to prevent injuries.
The Sparta Scan™ helps Sports Medicine and Performance staffs validate the efficacy of performance and rehabilitation programs by closely monitoring trends with objective, real time data. This instant feedback creates a metric-driven process, greatly improving the traditional, time-based approach.
Real time, objective data helps organizations create standardized metrics for communication, allowing Sports Medicine, Performance, Administrative staffs to be on the same page, focusing on the athlete first and involving the them in the conversation.

“Our injury rates our first year and a half – our average days lost went from 16 to 3 which was a remarkable way for me to say to our AD, ’Hey we can do more of this. We’re just scratching the surface”.
Gabe Bauer, Director of Performance, Colorado Rockies
“We weren’t even looking at the injury-prevention side of things originally… The results we’re getting back, honestly, they’re amazing.”
Jeff Foster, President, National Football Scouting
“For me after 12 years of looking at a lot of things to implement, I’m excited about Sparta because it really can help us on both sides, medical and performance.”
