In Football, every interaction involves the foot and is the reason why the location of the sensor on the boot is vital for the accurate measurement of foot-ball interactions. It allows the sensors to measure all data like technical ability, physical ability and gait parameters of a player.
The sensors can measure any movement of the foot including rotations of the ankle or contact with the ground; making it the only technology measuring foot specific interactions.
With a real-time machine learning algorithm, every step and every ball touch counts. Playermaker's 6-axis motion smart sensor is built with a gyroscope and accelerometer that samples movement events at 1000 times/sec.
Validated by top universities around the world, Playermaker is constantly being put to the test in meeting the highest academic research standards.
A powerful algorithm identifies trends within a diverse database by collecting performance data sets from different age groups, male and female players, different locations (mainly from U.S, Europe and Latin America) and players from all levels (Elite, Professional, Semi-professional, Non-League, Academies and youth teams).
Data is gathered and processed on the spot, due to the sensor being attached directly to a player's boot.
