Optimum monitoring of sports training and game performance can only be achieved with the help of wearables that do their job perfectly. These devices are worn on the body in order to collect biometric data, such as the wearer’s pulse. Fraunhofer IIS is responsible for the validation of physiological signs, such as heart rate measurements or electromyography, and indications of movement, such as measurements of speed, distance, or jump height. The different technologies are validated during professionally planned test days involving athletes, highly automated technical test and evaluation procedures, and careful scientific evaluation of the results. In addition, the safety of the systems and their components is then tested by the project partner, the University of Michigan.
