Barely a week seems to go by without a story about the application of data in sports. From Moneyball to the 21st Club, I find it all fascinating. Kitman Labs are not the first, nor the only company to use data to monitor athlete health and use that data to improve performance and results, but their approach has gained traction of late due to their focus on analyzing patterns in individual athletes rather than trends in wider teams or groups.
No discussion on using data to manage fitness (at least in a football context) is complete without reference to the "Milan Lab" the pioneering laboratory created by AC Milan in 2002 and which is credited with being hugely influential on Milan's successful period under Carlo Ancelotti, enabling them to extend the careers of the likes of Maldini, Nesta and Costacurta into their late 30s and even 40s, and give them confidence to sign older players like Jaap Stam and David Beckham.

Anyway, thanks to the good people at notarize.com, this pain may well be a thing of the past (well at least in the U.S.). They offer an entirely remote notarisation service via their app, using a combination of imaging technology and live video calls. I’ll let them explain further in their own words…
