Santos FC uses Polar Team Pro to optimize player performance and prevent injuries
The legendary Campeonato Brasileiro Série A side Santos FC embraces Polar wearable player tracking technology to stay ahead of their competition in individual player and entire squad performance development. They use Polar Team Pro player tracking system in their everyday football operation.
The Physiologist of Santos FC Luis Fernando De Barros explains: "Since the start of the year we've been working with Polar Team Pro and it really does provide valuable and trustworthy data. We monitor player performance data during both the games and in training sessions."
De Barros continues: "Polar Team Pro allows us to track the athletes distances and the intensity in which these are being run at. It enables us to monitor the speed of each athlete, the total distance and even the live heart rate during the training session. It's easy to measure these aspects in training and, that way, we know what works for each individual athlete."
Santos FC uses Polar Team Pro in optimizing their players' performance on pitch and also to make sure each player gets individual coaching to avoid injuries associated with overtraining.
De Barros says: "The fact that we can keep an eye on live data and even interfere in training helps with the physical preparation of each athlete. This makes it easier to measure and apply the right training loads for each training session and helps us avoid over and undertraining of each and every athlete."
Teams such as Santos FC, AFC Ajax, Kilmarnock F.C. and VfL Wolfsburg use Polar Team Pro. Want to join them and optimize your team's performance? Learn more.
