Scorched Ice Inc. (“SI”) has incorporated inertial measurement unit sensors (“IMUs”) and wireless radios (the “SI Sensor System”) into hockey skates (“Smart Skates”) to enable real time diagnostics of a hockey player's skating technique, condition, and performance.  SI is working with ST Micro, one of the world's largest sensor companies and the world’s second largest skate manufacturer (“Skate Co”) to jointly deploy the SI Sensor System.
