Nano Tsunami : Soccer-Football Shirt Tells How Tired Players Are On The Pitch

Footballers ( Soccer players ) could benefit from a new hi-tech shirt that alerts managers to players’ heart rate and hydration levels.

The shirt, which has in-built pulse and sweat monitors was designed by UK Northumbria University student David Evans.

It uses ECG sensors to record the electrical activity of the heart and send signals to a computer on the team bench, alerting managers, coaches and physios to the player’s heart rate and highlighting any abnormal rhythms.

Silicon gel based strips are connected to the top of the players’ backs and react to sweat loss to monitor hydration levels, indicating when a player is fatigued or dehydrated and could need to be substituted.

Wow! Then it's possible to work with the players more efficiently. And no more stupid errors anymore with substituting players. O0
