Ever wondered why players wear those black vests during training?
-Preparation or Pre-season is a crucial period as clubs prepare for the new campaign, but how do they make sure their players are in peak physical condition for the grueling months ahead? Here we will explain what are the benefits of these black vests and exactly what happens bye use of this system.
-The key component of the Advance Data-Sports system is the Viper pod, a matchbox-sized GPS device which sits between the shoulder blades, where it monitors heart rate and measures various aspects of physiological performance. The black vests which hold them in place have become a common sight on training grounds and the pods can be worn during matches, too.
Viper pods are used by leading teams such as Barcelona, Juventus, Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool, Sunderland, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Manchester United as well as Athletic Bilbao, AS Roma, AC Milan and the Belgium, Wales, Portugal, Croatian and England National Teams. The player tracking and analysis equipment is used by 14 clubs in the English Premier League and Spanish La Liga and also popular in other sports with NFL club Atlanta Falcons, Irish National Rugby Teams, Belgium Hockey Teams and NBA teams such as Chicago Bulls also using the same exact system. It is also used in cricket by Cricket Australia.
The devices track a player’s every move on the pitch. They can tell you loads about the player’s performances, including how far they’ve have run, how many sprints they’ve done and how heavy the workload has been on their bodies.

THE PRIMARY METRICS PRESENTED IN OUR APP INCLUDE:
The Viper pod device is a small box that fits into a vest worn by players under their shirts in training and matches, as Lionel Messi has done often this season.
The pods collect huge quantities of data, from running speed and distance covered to acceleration and deceleration, plus dynamic stress load. The software enables coaches to see if players are tired, at risk of injury, or need to do .more of a specific exercise.
The technology is also used to assess whether players are at risk of exasperating a fitness issue. Running with more weight on one foot than the other, for example, can be a sign that a player is subconsciously compensating for an injury.
“The further away you are from a game, the more work will go in on the training field. So as you get closer to the game, the workload will taper off so the players are fresh,” explained Sunderland Sports Scientist Paul Walsh.
For the players, it all adds up to constant scrutiny. “There’s certainly no hiding place in football anymore, because everything is analysed so much,” says Walsh, who adds that the Sunderland squad have embraced the technology wholeheartedly.
This technology is also flexible and applicable to a range of sports such as Rugby, Hockey, Basketball, Cricket and Athletics.
