The Death of GPS Performance Monitoring?

GPS tracking has been the leading method of performance monitoring throughout recent years. However, SABEL labs has developed a new wearable technology, SABEL Sense, that uses accelerometers and gyroscopes to provide a more in-depth and accurate look at an individuals movements.

It internally registers different movements such as acceleration and turns. When used in different training exercises, it can show where individuals flourish/struggle in terms of their own movements. It registers small changes in movement and speed that GPS simply cannot detect.

The data collected is remotely sent to a computer that provides a live feed of the athletes performance. This data can then be used to cater to the needs of any individual throughout training; to see what areas they need to improve, or rehabilitation; to see the rate of improvement and whether their training should intensify or slow down.

Australia, a world leader in sporting technology, has embraced this new technology and it has been picked up by most Australian elite sporting organisations.

Data such as this will be collected to measure the different movements of individuals.
