A innovative training and analysis system for increasing cognitive capacity - Winnerlights

Press release | Soken Medical Co., Ltd.

About 90% of mistakes come from 3 processes, Perception, Understanding, and Decision making. But actual training is only about another process, Eexecution. “Winnerlights” is a innovated training and analysys system for increasing cognitive capacity.

What is ‘Winnerlights’:
‘Winnerlights’ is a training and analysis system for increasing cognitive capacity. 

Background: 
There are 4 processes in football play. About 90% of mistakes come from 3 processes, Perception, Understanding, and Decision making. But actual training is all about the remaining process, Execution, such as passing, dribbling, shooting, etc.  So we need some training methods to train these 3 processes. This is the background to why we developed ‘Winnerlights’. “The players’ brains need to speed up too ! These are words by Julian Nagelsman, head coach of Bayern Munich. So we need to train the brains. 

How ‘Winnerlights’ work: 
Have you ever seen glowing bibs? Changing colors? You can change the colors of your bibs and goals with your smartphone. When the color of the LED on the goal changes, your goal becomes the opponent’s goal. The color of the players‘ bibs will also change. When the color of the LED on the bib changes, the opponents change sides. As a result, the player has to constantly look around, recognise and make decisions. 

The possibilities: 
This process builds the player’s game intelligence. With ‘Winnerlights’, we offer a new way of development for youth players. And by sharing information with coaches around the world, we are making football a more exciting sport. 

Future vision: 
Sensors on the goal, cones and bibs constantly send the player’s position, body orientation and ball position to the analysis computer (cloud) via smartphone. The AI reproduces the actual player’s movements and the movement patterns, analyses this data and provides a pattern of how it should be on the tactical board app. Coaches can give advice to players here, and players themselves can also understand.
