The team at Avice is passionate about helping athletes reach their maximum potential and assisting with injury recovery using scientifically proven technology.
Avice was founded at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Auckland University of Technology. We formed a partnership with AUT Ventures to develop a platform that would revolutionize how we understand our muscular performance and help sports teams and individual athletes reach their optimal performance and potentially assist with muscular injury recovery.
Early successes for the Avice team and their idea have included awards and funding from AUT Ventures, Callaghan Innovation, KiwiNet, Zino Ventures, and Hype Sports Innovation.
Our vision is to become the leader in tracking muscular performance, enabling new performance breakthroughs for all areas in the sports and fitness market.
