J.A.S Product Design Services won the Sport England-sponsored Sports Technology Design Challenge, where entrants are asked to submit innovations that will help more women, young and disabled people play sport.
The Sports Technology Awards champion and celebrate innovative and inspiring advances in sports technology and highlight how accessible sport is moving forward.
Judges at the Sports Technology Awards 2015 were impressed by the company's plan to develop customisable and adaptable seating for indoor and outdoor rowing. Special fittings and other adaptations enable disabled users to access the equipment, making it an attractive option for sports clubs wanting to make their venues more accessible.
Competition was fierce across all categories, which spanned equipment, training and coaching tools, stadia, wearable technology, apps and broadcast.
Rebecca Hopkins, Director of the Sports Technology Awards, said: "Sports technology is, arguably the most exciting and impactful area of development in sport today – as well as the most diverse.
"Winning a Sports Technology Award is a significant achievement and the industry would be well advised to keep a close eye on the work of these companies."
