Sports data company STATSports is offering STATS GPS shirts to provide real-time GPS intelligence to athletes and coaches.
Wearing STATS GPS shirts, teams can monitor player metrics such as accelerations/decelerations, energy expenditure and count of zone entries, as well as time, distance and power thresholds.
The system uses a 50-Hz sampling frequency. It allows practitioners to monitor up to 100 players in real time and post session with more than 300 GPS, inertial measurement unit (IMU) and HR-derived metrics, the company said.
The shirts feature an embedded medical-grade ECG sensor that’s fully integrated with the GPS units, allowing for seamless real-time analysis with the STATS Dynamix online portal.
Customizable reports can include information on imbalance, cardiovascular metrics and running, explosive and brake symmetry.
