Validation of wearables for the NBA
Optimal training and game control in sports can only be achieved with properly functioning wearables. Wearables are measurement systems worn on the body, for example for biometric data such as heart rate. Fraunhofer IIS is responsible for the validation in the areas of physiological, such as heart rate measurement or electromyography, and movement, such as measurement of speed, distance or jump height. The validation of various technologies is carried out by means of professionally planned test days with athletes, highly automated technical test and evaluation procedures, and scientific care in the evaluation of the results. In addition, the systems and their components are tested for safety by the project partner, the University of Michigan.
