Umana Medical premium sponsor of the UEC Road European Championships
The wearable sensors of the health technology company will be in the peloton at the European Cycling Championships: ultra-thin nanotechnology to capture and monitor physical values in real-time.
Umana Medical is preparing to make its big-time debut in cycling debut at the UEC Road European Championships – Trentino 2021, to take place in Trento (Italy) from September 8th to 12th.
The Malta-based medical technology company is indeed one of the premium sponsors of the event. The Road European Championships will bring to Trento more than 800 athletes from 50 Nations, with some of the top names in world cycling, starting with the new phenomenon Tadej Pogačar.
Umana Medical will be in the core of the racing action: the company will provide some of the athletes in the race with its advanced remote monitoring system, Umana T1, to measure their vital and performance parameters during the race.
The Umana T1 is a non-invasive reader that uses ultra-thin nanotechnology to capture readings such as pulse rate, breathing variability and blood pressure on the move.
“We are pleased to offer athletes our innovative solution to be able to monitor their physical condition in real-time during competitions,” said Umana Medical CEO Adrian Attard Trevisan. “Our technology will help athletes to analyse their values and thus optimise their performance.”
Umana Medical is part of the Gpi Group, an international health technology group based in Trentino. “There is a double contact between Gpi Group and the 2021 European Cycling Championships,” explained founder and chairman Fausto Manzana. “We both have our roots in the city of Trento, and our dedication to healthcare innovation is the same one that drives professional athletes in their quest for maximum performance.”
“Our solutions help thousands of people every day to lead better lives and push themselves further: we want to transmit this energy to the athletes taking part in such an important event,” said Fabio Rossi, director of Gpi Group. “With this strategic partnership, we want to inspire professional and amateur athletes from around the world.”
