APEX Athlete Monitoring Device


If you have been keeping up with professional soccer, you may have noticed players wearing these strange vests. They are called APEX Athlete Monitoring Devices, and are used to measure the distance, speed, acceleration, deceleration, high-speed running load, and heart rate of athletes. The information provided by these vests is able to give them immediate feed back on their performance in games and training. It also helps to improve the health and safety of an athlete.

This is related to engineering because there is a lot of technology incorporated into the vest. The people who designed the APEX Athlete Monitoring Device were able to fit a tracker, heartbeat monitor, and many other things in such a small area. The creators of this tech also programmed an app to go with the vest, so you can review your stats. This all shows the great amount of engineering that went into this product.
