HITIQ Limited (ASX: HIQ) has executed an agreement with UK Sports Institute (UKSI), the UK’s high-performance sports institute to supply its concussion management technology across the UK's elite sports ecosystem.

Under the terms of this agreement, UKSI will implement HITIQ's CSX concussion management platform across 25 National Governing Body Sports Programmes, onboarding 1,050 athletes. The current agreement is through to 31 March 2025 with UKSI holding an option to extend the agreement for a further year. The financial implication of the deal is not material.

"We are honoured to collaborate with UKSI, a world-renowned leader in high-performance sports,” HITIQ Director of Elite Sales & Strategy - UK & Europe, Tom Mockford, said.

“This partnership is a testament to the diversity of application of our concussion management platform and we are excited to see our technology integrated at the highest level across such a broad cross section of sports within the UK sporting ecosystem. Our exposure to the range of governing bodies will lay a strong foundation for future growth into grassroots.”

Dr Andrew Hogg, who is a Senior Sports Physician and Head of Brain Health at UK Sports Institute said part of the UKSI’s mission to deliver outstanding support that enables sports and athletes to excel.

“Brain health is a priority multi-disciplinary workstream for us, that aims to support the best possible assessment and management of sports concussion and protect long term athlete brain health,” Dr Hogg said.

“Our partnership with HIT-IQ and roll-out of their CSX app across 25 high performance sports is a key step in further support for athletes’ brain health. Having considered multiple technologies and applications in the brain health field, we felt that CSX offered us the most suitable platiorm to support our aims.

“Our medical and physiotherapy staff will now have access to the CSX system to assist with assessment, recording and management of head injuries, which will benefit them and the sports and athletes they support.”

In conjunction with the current Premier League agreement, HITIQ's footprint across key sports within the UK provides direct exposure to the significant junior populations allowing for future cross selling opportunities of the broader HITIQ product suite.
