Researchers Use GPS Technology to Predict Footballers’ Injuries

Researchers at the University of Birmingham partnered with Southampton Football Club and, using GPS technology, were able to show that footballers (i.e. soccer players)  injuries could be predicted by looking at players’ workloads during training and competition. They discovered that the greatest injury risk was correlated with a significantly high number of short bursts of speed during training over a three-week period. The scientists are the first to look into and actually monitor injury ri...
