Fatigue Science, a global leader in providing predictive human performance data in heavy industry, elite sports, and military, is pleased to announce the formation of a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The new SAB is comprised of three experts in fatigue risk management, wellness and human performance, sleep science and sports science. This group will support Fatigue Science’s mission to provide a gold-standard enterprise solution based on validated science that, through wearable-based sleep data, quantifies and predicts the effects of sleep disruption and schedules on reaction time and cognitive effectiveness.
The SAB will work closely with the Fatigue Science leadership team as the Company continues to develop and enhance its scientifically-validated solutions enabling organizations to optimize operations, reduce risk, and drive performance and productivity.
“We are excited and privileged to have the opportunity to work with this group of experts on the development of our Readi Enterprise Suite as well as on our broader pipeline of predictive fatigue management solutions,” said Andrew Morden, Fatigue Science’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “These thought leaders bring a tremendous scientific understanding of managing the risk of fatigue in the workplace, as well as extensive experience in maximizing human performance and productivity.
