Technology Enhancing Athlete's Performance
Technology is reforming athlete's training by live-tracking performances, intensifying communication, improving athletic movements, and virtually reducing injuries.
FREMONT, CA: During the conventional period, sports training required extensive paperwork and post-practice effort from both the trainer and the athlete. Notes were taken diligently while the athlete used to train and then organized into charts and graphs outlining that athlete’s performance. New technology has transformed the area of sports training. Advanced technology has grown more flexible, and less troublesome paving the way for new possibilities, especially in athletics.
Using wearable sensors, sports coaches can measure and track performance in real-time. Almost anything regarding the athlete can be measured, from breathing and heart rate to hydration and temperature. These live metrics can assist the trainer in determining which aspects each athlete needs to concentrate the most. Lasers and GPS have been consolidated into multiple aspects of the sports training environment. Rather than relying on times and splits, coaches can measure the specific position, velocity, distance, and acceleration of athletes to understand the improvement areas thoroughly.
Internet streaming applications have also magnified communication during training. Anyone can discover endless hours of workouts and gameplays and shared just as promptly through the online video players. To sustain education through viewing a film or reviewing plays, athletes and trainers can upload and watch the required videos during practice or on their own time. Communication has been additionally enhanced by other fitness apps that can be obtained on a smartphone or computer. Trainers can keep track of athletes by monitoring their daily diet, and athletes will have a personal responsibility for their training.
Technology has developed and molded sports for the more desirable. Sports technology is now so advanced that it can generate a digital code for winning the gold medal. This means that the data collected and analyzed can eventually translate into a gold medal performance. Technology has improved an athlete’s prowess only because it amplifies performance-related actions and events that have been previously unseen.
