Feldspar Innovates with Sensor-Enabled Running Track for Enhanced Athlete Performance and Live Sports

LONDON, July 8, 2024 — Feldspar Limited, the UK-based technology company, announced that it is building the world’s first sensor-enabled performance running track, poised to redefine athletic performance and live sports entertainment. This pioneering innovation represents the first major technological advancement in track and field running in nearly 60 years, laying the foundation for an unparalleled new immersive experience in live sports.

For the first time, Feldspar’s performance running track will incorporate advanced sensors in addition to camera-based methods to directly measure the movement of athletes through their footsteps and stride to capture data in real-time, bringing new levels of precision in analysing running performance.

Feldspar’s next-generation modular sports flooring and tracking software solution will integrate patent-pending technologies and state-of-the-art materials into the track design, enabling a novel and unprecedented way of energy return and conversion*. This performance innovation will allow athletes to achieve a faster running speed compared to what is currently possible today and push the boundaries of human performance.

Offering complex and historically hard-to-access data, such as stride length, acceleration rate and max velocity in real-time, this technology has the potential to revolutionise the spectator experience at live sports events as well as to attract new enthusiasts who value innovative, visually captivating, and tech-driven premier sports entertainment.

To further enhance performance, Feldspar will also integrate an AI-powered data analytics tool and sports tracking software intended to redefine professional coaching and optimise training for athletes. This includes adjusting competition strategy before, during and after races, and identifying potential areas of injuries based on granular individual data and in-depth athlete profiles.

Alvina Chen, Founder and CEO of Feldspar said, “While we have seen a high level of innovation in running shoes, apparel, and training methods in recent years, it’s incredible that the modern synthetic running track itself has remained largely unchanged since the 1968 Summer Olympics.”

Chen continued, “There is a huge opportunity in revolutionising this sport. By digitising the running track Feldspar is not only providing new avenues for athletes’ development and pushing the boundaries of human performance but also moving athletics towards a new era of exhilarating, high-energy live international events, similar to what we see in other sports, like football and motorsports.”

Chen added, “Our ambition with our next generation running track is to set a new benchmark for athlete performance and fan engagement for future world competitions, including the Olympic Games, and beyond.”

Feldspar is working with the UK’s top engineers, industrial designers, and data scientists to develop the high-performance, premium running track prototype, with real-time testing set to begin later this year. Production of the flooring solution is expected to begin in 2025.

Founded by former professional track runner Alvina Chen, the inspiration to reinvent the running track struck during her international racing career.

The company has secured initial backing from Hong Kong-based investors which will be used to develop the high-performance running track prototype.

Disclosing this in a press note issued in Hyderabad, the Dhyan Foundation spokesperson said the centre which is coming up in the centre of the city at Banjara Hills is its place and can accommodate up to 200 people. It will teach every aspect of Yoga by volunteers who are students, homemakers, lawyers, journalists, doctors, and CEOs under the guidance of Ashwini Guruji of Dhyan Ashram.

Soon it will run a few special sessions of Secrets from Sanatan Kriya for eternal youth & glow and a brilliant mind, under the guidance of *Ashwini Guru ji* of Dhyan Ashram.

Ashwini Guruji is an embodiment of the gyan of the Vedas. He follows the Guru-Shishya parampara in its totality, He believes yoga is a sadhana and not a business. The foundation is committed to the cause of spreading awareness about the authentic path of yoga, as laid down by Sage Patanjali 4,500 years ago. Be it conducting lectures at various prestigious institutions like IIM, Bangalore, Oxford University, and London, authoring masterpieces on esoteric subjects (including the thesis on anti-ageing, Sanatan Kriya – The Ageless Dimension) or taking seekers from across ages on spiritual sojourns to places of importance in the Vedic culture – He has continuously enlightened us about our history.

From revealing to us the deep secrets hidden under the Earth at the Patal Bhuvaneshwari Caves, interpreting the ancient Vedic symbolism of the Rollright stones in the UK, to uncovering astounding revelations of the Sigiriya rock in Sri Lanka, Ashwini Guruji has enlightened us about the Vedic relevance of each of these places.

Formed in 2002 to share and spread the gyan of the original and pristine form of yog, Dhyan Foundation, today is a global phenomenon with centres all across the world where Sanatan Kriya (Patanjali Ashtang Yog in its original, undiluted form) sessions are conducted free of cost as per the ancient Guru-Shishya Parampara. Thousands across the globe have benefited physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually from the practice of Sanatan Kriya.

Dhyan Foundation runs several animal welfare programmes for dogs, birds, cows, monkeys and many other animals. Today, it has over 47 shelters and gaushalas and we provide aid, care, food and shelter to over 70,000 animals.
