Jurrit Sanders, the Lead Academy Sports Scientist of PSV, explained the tool is used to train the players of PSV cognitively. The players who train with our cognitive training tool give positive feedback to Jurrit.

Young Talent Award
September 2022 - We are the proud winners of the "Young Talent Award" at the Gerard and Anton Philips Awards 2022. The jury has rewarded us this award with the following praising explanation:
'Soms kan het snel gaan. Vorig jaar februari kenden de vier studenten van de TU Eindhoven en hun medestudent van de Radboud Universiteit elkaar nog niet. Ze kwamen bij elkaar via een project bij innovation Space van de TU Eindhoven. De opdracht: een cognitieve trainingstool ontwikkelen voor PSV. De vijf ontwikkelden een werkend prototype, wonnen drie prijzen in twee wedstrijden, registreerden zich met Aristotle, als onderneming bij de Kamer van Koophandel én ze tekenden een contract met PSV voor een langdurige samenwerking. En nu staan ze hier op het podium voor een speciale extra prijs.'
May 2022 - NPO EenVandaag made an item to showcase our cognitive training tool together with PSV:
January 2022 - we’ve reached a long-term agreement with PSV. We have experienced PSV’s pioneering position since day one, being part of their ‘living lab’ at the youth academy. Being closer to the end-users has helped us improve the implementation of the cognitive training tool based on their specific needs.
