Sports science has helped to revolutionise the way athletes train, eat and recover. But one of the largest science revolutions has been within wearable technology, which helps informs coaches, medical staff and scientist on how best to prepare and condition their athletes. World sport joins Queens Park Rangers and catapult to learn how training has been truly revolutionsed.

we're switching the spotlight to science

now as we explore the intricacies of

wearable technology and sports I think

the best way to describe wearable

technology is sports specific analytics

so don't think of it as hardware it is a

analytics that inform coaches or sports

scientists and medical staff decisions

about how to prepare and condition their

athletes it allows athletes to perform

in a normal environment which is

typically competitive but still

capturing data and creating insights

rather than taking them out of that

environment by putting them into a lab

GPS works by the GPS chip within the

device communicating with satellites

that are orbiting the Earth the

satellites will send through two pieces

of information so at the time kind of

position from this we're able to

calculate the position and the speed of

the athlete wearing the device we work

with twenty thousand athletes globally

now than over a thousand teams some of

them more marquee names would be the

soccer we work with Real Madrid Paris

and Rome an elasticity we've got the MBA

so we work with the Golden State

Warriors and in the NFL we work with

Chateau seahawks and the Broncos a lot

our technology is about being precise

precision is key to what we do without

precision you're making decisions based

on information is inadequate and you're

dealing with players and athletes who

where marginal games can be made but

only with precise information with

wearable technology monitoring a variety

of different attributes it's essential

that the analytics measured on the

devices correspond to each player's

unique position on the pitch so the

devices that we have s5g 5x4 c6 all it

is a different device is a different

purpose so for example the g5 was made

specifically for goalkeepers what they

do isn't typical of an outfield player

they don't run as much without field

players it others many accelerations or

Sprint's or reach high velocity so what

we've done is we've create the same

hardware that outfield players use and

use advanced algorithms and metrics to

really measure what they do

so sport specific metrics such as dives

the intensity of the drive dive the

direction and that helps us quantify

what a goalkeeper truly does wearable

technology was recently brought in to

Queens Park Rangers Football Club to

help with the analytical evaluation of

its players one of the technologies

earliest adopters was performance

consultant Chris Barnes the best way to

describe a training session is in terms

of two metrics or two numbers one of

them will give you an idea of how much

work a player is done so the volume of

the training session if you like and the

second one will tell you how hard

they've worked the intensity of the

training session and the key over the

course of a training week is to get the

balance of the two right so that you

don't overcook or undercooked the

players what we're able to do with these

devices on each individual player is

actually build individual fingerprints

where we know how we can actually get

the best out of that individual player

within the team environment I think the

human aspects of using catapults follow

the most important part and it's

probably the reason that we actually

invest a lot of time and effort in

hiring great sport scientists to help

educate the market players and the end

users of capital technology so that they

get the most value out of it the reason

for those people only the people in the

club and the end user actually

understands the contextual factors

around what's happening in the training

ground and someone outside of that

situation it's much much more difficult

to make sense they're in service it

properly and then actually change

behaviors based on it this technology is

not just changed the way that I work but

it's changed the way that everybody

working within team sports works and I'd

like to think that what they do is they

contribute towards making better more

informed and more accurate decision
