In its beginnings, the devices were used only in the major categories but with the course of time the importance of performance monitoring in youth divisions it's being known that GPS trackers are quickly becoming an indispensable tool for clubs.
Football: Sports Science & Technology
Injury reduction is one of the main goals for teams that use GPS technology to track performance.
Besides being a tool to measure performance and evolve talents, OLIVER was designed to prevent injuries that could come in the future by accumulating loads, thus providing the player and team with key information to plan training and achieve the best physical adaptation to the game.
Real Madrid Foundation Campus Experience partners with OLIVER, a platform and GPS tracker for monitoring players and improving their physical, athletic, and tactical performance adding the capability to prevent injuries to these players such as professional players.
The return to training after weeks of inactivity, for low-season, holiday or seasonal renewal means a time of fundamental work for the whole team. Because it´s during those beginnings that the group work to re-adapt and re-perform to the fullest.
When projecting next season as a team, thinking about technologies to measure players performance is becoming increasingly stronger in the sports world. We generally tend to think that GPS trackers are used only in elite teams and clubs. That’s the reason why at OLIVER we created a GPS tracker that most teams can access, a wearable with top-tech efficiently built to make it accessible to everyone.
