Being able to use SPT’s technology has enabled the Physiotherapists at Optimus Health to work closely with our Sports Science Team and help to reduce soft tissue injuries over the 2016/17 season. We have managed to use the GPS data to give feedback to coaches about important data and load variables, including acute-chronic ratios and flagging players when their loads are not in a ‘sweet spot’.
I decided to use SPT when I was preparing to return from a lower back injury. I had been trying to get back [into training] for a month or two after I was cleared, but every time I would begin to push myself, I would find that my back would begin to hurt. I realized that I was creating the problems by increasing my workload too soon.Read more
I began researching companies and products that would allow me to see the results of my training sessions so that I could use the data to slowly progress back to full fitness. After reading and educating myself on the GPS device that SPT provides, I decided that the features offered at the price point was unmatched. It is extremely user-friendly and a great way to analyze data on a day-to-day basis. I continue to use the device throughout the off-season to monitor the workload and intensity of each training session so I can better take care of my body and prepare properly for the upcoming season.
