Sports Injury Genetic Test

“Every day, more athletes go beyond and what motivates us is overcome us, compete and seek our limits, which is causing an increased incidence and severity of acute and chronic injuries due to sports.”

This increase of sports injuries has not gone unnoticed by the European Community which has already conducted several studies in this respect and is beginning to make awareness-raising campaigns to enable athletes to perform their physical activity addressed and personalized. Only in Europe, more than 2.5 million of non-contact sport injuries are produced each year, which represents a serious economic and social problem.

At SM Genomics, we believe that prevention and proactive actions focused on personalizing physical activity and rehabilitation are essential to reduce the risk of injury and better recovery. This is the reason we offer to sports amateur market our Sports Injury Genetic Test (SIGT), genetic analysis developed and validated in professional athletes that explores 17 genetic changes (polymorphisms or SNPs) related to:

Predisposition to suffer injuries
Recovery Times
Injuries Severity

Benefits: less injuries, performance increase and better health

Know in advance our predisposition to suffer injuries, recovery time guidance and injuries severity, allow us to act in the following topics:

Personalise workloads & intensity
Reinforce tissue and weak areas
Rating return times
Vitamins/Nutrients supplementation

Genes analysed in the SIGT

ELASTIN
IGF-2
COL5A1
HGF
LIF
TITIN
GDF5
TNC
COL1A1
SOX15
MMP3
CCL2
MYF5

Collection Kit content

Our genetic tests are performed using saliva sample. SM Genomics has designed its own Collection Kit that contains:

Sterile Swab
Ideal for safe and easy removal of saliva through buccal rubbing. It contains stabilizer liquid that keeps DNA for 60 days at room temperature. Cap with thread for a better seal. See video.

In order to perform any of pur genetic tests it is mandatory to return us the Informed Consent completed and signed.
ID Code Labels
Labels that must be adhered to the saliva collection tube and consent sheet to ensure correct traceability.
Plastic bag for biological samples
Special bag for the transport of biological samples such as saliva.
