Firstbeat, founded in 2002 in Finland, has made a breakthrough in physiological modelling by using different factors of heart rate variability (HRV) to quantify underlying physiological processes. Firstbeat’s business is founded on the state-of-the-art academic research in physiology, mathematical modelling and behaviour focusing on autonomic nervous system and athlete overtraining conducted at the Finnish Research Institute for Olympic Sports in 1990s. Since then research has continued on methods of quantifying athlete’s performance and recovery through heart rate variability and extended into assessment of wellbeing and health factors also for non-athletic persons.
The company deploys a large team in physiological modelling that utilizes laboratory studies and real-life studies to develop and validate technology to develop analytics technology according to sound physiological principles. These principles build the foundation for the best accuracy and applicability.
