After completing his PhD on Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Control during Human Locomotion and many years consulting in elite sport and private practice, Dr Steve Saunders joined North Melbourne Football Club in 2010. He was charged with the responsibility of developing a world leading sports science / medical program. The focused, science-based push to drastically reduce injuries while substantially increasing training loads and on field performance was successful on all fronts.
Over a six-year period, the science behind KangaTech has seen us achieve the lowest injury rate of any team in the AFL.
Steve was frustrated initially by a lack of products on the market that were founded on science and proven within a large team environment. In 2015, in partnership with technology company Biarri and NMFC, KangaTech was formed. Steve’s vision has now been brought to market thanks to this collaboration.
