A breakthrough measurement
The instrumented football shoes developed by Phyling allow vertical ground reaction forces measurement in situ. Thanks to force sensors embedded in the shoe, we are able to analyze the players' dynamic, their running patterns and their fitness.
For each step, we calculate more than 15 indicators to characterize the player's fitness on the ground, in real conditions of play. It allows us to quantify his state of fatigue during a constant velocity run.
In a near future, this way of measurement could help coaches and athletes monitor training load by completing existing solutions and devices.
The instrumented Phyling football shoes is scientically validated and has been used in several studies to improve fatigue detection among professionnal footballers.
