TORONTO, April 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Kontrol Technologies Corp. (CSE: KNR) (OTCQB: KNRLF) (FSE: 1K8) ("Kontrol Technologies" or "Kontrol" or "Company") announces that Rowing Canada Aviron ("RCA") is teaming up with Kontrol BioCloud to pilot its Safe Space Technology™ in the National Team Training environment. The Kontrol BioCloud viral detection technology is designed as a real-time analyzer to detect airborne pathogens, such as COVID-19. The system will be installed in the erg dome and medical treatment centre at the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence in Victoria, BC.
"We developed BioCloud to help us get back to normal across all sectors of the economy, including athletics and sports," said Kontrol CEO, Paul Ghezzi. "We are delighted to share our Safe Space Technology with RCA and help create safer spaces for athletes."
"Adding the Biocloud technology into our training centre will add another critical layer of safety and confidence to our existing Covid protocols," said Tricia McBride, RCA Lead Physiotherapist. "This technology will help our medical staff ensure our athletes are training in the safest environment possible and allow our athletes to focus on their training without worrying about the air they are breathing."
National team rowers have been training under strict COVID-19 protocols since the re-opening of the National Training Centre last May. Protocols include small training groups, masking, social distancing, handwashing, and thorough sanitizing of all equipment. The trialing of this innovative technology will further enhance the safety of these environments and ensure that our Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls can continue focusing on their training in the lead up to Tokyo. www.rowingcanada.org.
