We supply portable scanning equipment to speed up injury diagnoses and bone density scanning to emerging talent around the country,helping develop better training progressions and increasing understanding about the impact of training loads.
GE also gets behind the athletes with direct support for athlete ambassadors both in the Olympic and Paralympic disciplines.
In 2011 GE sponsored a competition for schools with STEMNET to design a new wet-suit for Paratriathlete Jimmy Goddard. The winning school had their design made up by Speedo, which was worn by Jimmy at the Paratriathlon World Championships where he won a silver medal and shave four minutes off his time.
Paratriathlon has been given Paralympic status for Rio 2012 and GE will be right behind them.
