In order to get a complete picture of the performance of a player it is important to measure the:
The external load (movements over the pitch) is measured by our JOHAN trackers.
We measure the internal load by heart rate measurements and the subjective response of players – this is done within our Forms module.
From sports scientific research we know that this subjective response to the activity is a great indicator for exertion and recovery. We have adopted the most common forms:
The subjective response of exertion is measured after the training or match by grading the level of exertion from 1 (very light) to 10 (extremely hard).
Recovery is measured by grading the following aspects on a daily basis from 1 (feeling very good) to 10 (feeling very bad):
Injuries can be logged by filling in a form with the following characteristics:
All these forms can be filled in in our online environment. Each player has a personal login to fill out the recovery and/or exertion form. The environment is completely responsive, so it is easy to fill out on a mobile phone. However, we want to ease the input for players as best as we can, therefore we are developing a mobile app dedicated for players to fill out and manage forms over time.
