For now our focus is football only. The PlayerMaker product is designed to provide football teams with the most powerful solution and the best experience. The underlying capabilities of the technology that allows us to track the biomechanics of the lower limbs could be applied to multiple different sports in the future.
Our price varies according to a club’s needs and customisation requirements. We have various packages aimed at different clubs levels which can be viewed here. Our pricing model is an annual subscription per player account, the hardware is provided by PlayerMaker as a service.
It’s understandable that with an external product people may think it affects performance. However, the sensor is roughly 3cm and has been specifically designed not to interfere with any ball striking zones on the foot and does not affect a player’s on-pitch performance. Feedback from players wearing the product has been 100% positive. The sensor has been designed by Erez Morag, the specialist responsible for the Nike Mercurial Vapor.
Yes, the sensors have been tested to withstand all weather conditions and elements.

PlayerMaker Essential is an ideal entry point for all other teams including schools and universities. See here for more information on our packages.
PlayerMaker measures many more data points and therefore produces a more detailed analysis than GPS products. PlayerMaker includes Distance Driven Data which allows biomechanical analysis and gait tracking of players. Technical and tactical data are also produced for every training session and every match. All of the KPIs you can get from a GPS tool, PlayerMaker can also provide. GPS relies on satellites, products measure the center of mass and the position of the product on a player’s back. PlayerMaker sensors are fixed to a boot and work equally well indoors or outdoors.
