    ABOUT

S2P, Science to Practice, Ltd.




Company S2P, Science to Practice, Ltd was established in 2010 with the aim of research and development work, primarily in the field of kinesiology, medicine, rehabilitation and measurement technologies.

Even before the formal establishment the current research group worked together on different projects within which ideas to develop certain products were born. At the moment, our products cover multiple measurement modules that are regularly used in sports medicine. The initial team has since expanded with new collaborators in the fields of development, research and marketing. The company is aiming to become one of the leading institutions for diagnostics and science in sports medicine.

Due to constant development of new measurement modules and procedures, the company additionally focused on offering professional services to a wider population using our state-of-the-art equipment. In 2013 the company launched a novel exercise and diagnostics centre where our  highly educated team works with athletes and patients. The two main areas of focus are cycling and lower back pain.

 

Company’s headquarters are based in Technology Park in  Ljubljani.
