Five National Football League (NFL) franchises have recently signed agreements to use Catapult wearable devices over the coming seasons.
The Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will all use global positioning (GPS) and local positioning (LPS) technology to help optimize performance and reduce injury risk among their athletes in both indoor and outdoor environments.
Signalling Catapult’s continued growth at the highest level of American football, the agreements with these five franchises take the number of NFL teams using our technology to 19.
As well as delivering standard GPS/LPS-derived volume and intensity measures, Catapult has invested heavily in the development of metrics specific to American Football. By combining inertial sensor data with positional information, our elite wearable technology is able to provide unique measurements that highlight the specific positional demands of the sport.
As the NFL continues to push the boundaries of technological innovation, we’re proud to be working with franchises across the league to help them quantify and improve athlete performance at the highest levels of American football.
