What Teams Think

Elite scientists and coaches around the world use OptimEye S5 to optimise performance.

I’ve done a lot of research into the different devices of GPS units and I’ve always been very, very satisfied about the accuracy and reliability of the Catapult devices.
It’s become such a key part in what we do at training, the equipment is just part of the kit that the players wear. They’ll put the shorts and t-shirt on, they’ll put the GPS and the heart rate monitor on, and then they’ll get the shin pads and the boots on. It’s just part of the kit.

The number one goal of this system right now is trying to help prevent injury as well as help us with the rehab process. There are a lot of different things that go in to it, but the biggest thing is how can we monitor guys on the field to help us get the information? What do they really do at their position? How far does a receiver really run in practice? How fast does a receiver run in practice? Then create standards for each positional group to be able to say, ‘Well this guy has done four days in a row in this (work) rate zone, this guy is at risk of injury’.
