The OptimEye is a wireless performance-measuring device that takes complex analytics and presents them as understandable real-time interface. The tool gauges variables such as fatigue deterioration, performance over time and return to play after injury.

The device sits at the top of the athlete’s back, under the jersey.
HOW IT MEASURES PERFORMANCE
As the athlete moves around, the device constantly collects around 1,000 data points per second.
The raw data goes through internal algorithms that strip out errors of the sensors and the force of gravity.
The cleaned-up data is sent real time to a laptop or uploaded for later use.
Software displays the data in forms like charts.
