    Training and Technology

    World-leading sports technology

    In May, Otago Polytechnic will become the first organisation in the world to use the newest sports GPS technology, which helps coaches and teams to minimise risk of injury during conditioning and training sessions.

    Some of the world’s leading sports teams are on the waiting list to receive the newest devices, including the Wallabies, Chelsea Football Club and Real Madrid.

    GPSports has designed the micro-sensor technology and has chosen the Polytechnic’s Otago Institute of Sport and Adventure to use it first. A Certificate on how to use, monitor and analyse the units has been built into the Graduate Diploma in Applied Science (Analysis and Conditioning Specialties).

    Mat Blair, Senior Lecturer, says the new micro-sensor technology shows Otago Polytechnic is world-leading. “Our students will learn the best monitoring and analysis techniques with the latest technology. It’s exciting to be at the forefront of this area of sport science.”

    Yeah, it's the same company. This must just be some new innovation.
