Following the exciting growth in wearable technology in the NBA, we are proud to welcome our first European basketball team, German-based BG Gottingen.
Tom Mockford, Sports Science Consultant at BG Gottingen, had the following to say about introducing Catapult to basketball in Germany.
“The use of Catapult technology with our team this year has played a huge role in making sure our players are best prepared physically for each game of a demanding regular season and playoffs.
“It has certainly helped us have a successful year, being promoted to the top division in the professional basketball league in Germany (Beko BBL).
“We have used the technology in many ways, guiding practice and rehab plans. It has provided us with objective information, building confidence when making interventions/decisions. Making sure our metabolic and physical load are periodized correctly for peak game physical performance has been key both on an individual and team level. It has also been integral to our injury prevention strategy. The players found the system invaluable with their physical progression this season, responding very positively.
“Catapult provided effective and immediate technical support throughout."
