STATS Releases STATS GPS For Athlete Monitoring
STATS, a company in sports data and intelligence, unveiled STATS GPS, a system that uses 50-Hz sampling frequency to provide real-time GPS technology.
STATS GPS allows teams to monitor player performance with customizable metrics like accelerations/decelerations, energy expenditure, count of zone entries, and time, distance, and power thresholds. The solution uses real 50-Hz sampling frequency and allows practitioners to monitor up to 100 players in real-time and postsession with over 300 GPS, IMU, and HR derived metrics. The GPS vests are embedded with textile heart-rate sensors.
“Teams and conditioning coaches need the latest technology to ensure players stay at peak health and fitness during long seasons,” says Ryan Paterson, Chief Global Officer at STATS. “With STATS GPS’ new 50-Hz technology, teams can instantly get performance information, allowing them to make in-the-moment decisions.”
Using the STATS Dynamix online portal, coaches can have detailed session reports ready by the time players walk off the pitch. Reports are fully customizable and can include in-depth player summaries as well as information on imbalance, cardiovascular metrics and running, explosive, and brake symmetry. The system also gives sports scientists the capability to create new formulas and apply these to historical data.
“I have been using STATS GPS and am very happy with its reliability and ease-of-use,” says Thierry Cote, fitness coach at AS St-Etienne. “STATS are real experts in the player-tracking space, and the level of support I receive is exceptional.”
“Objectively monitoring players in training and in-match is essential for us in order to optimally prepare them and mitigate injury risk,” says Pete Atkinson, Head of Performance, Italian Rugby Federation. “We are working closely with STATS to target individual players’ needs utilizing the latest technology.”
