Microchips, sleep-monitoring watches

20 Sep, 2014

Cuban and Mavs management introduce tracking devices during training, and Readiband sleep monitoring watches, among other health technology for the Mavs. Athletic performance director Jeremy Holsopple:

We are constantly beta-testing several technologies.

Cuban has invested in Australia-based Catapult Sports, which produces what it says is the first bio-analytics platform, a beeper-sized device that monitors and assesses real-time data on accelerations, decelerations, changes of direction and jumping to monitor training loads. The Mavs use the device along with about a third of NBA teams and half of the teams in the NFL, including the Cowboys. Cuban:

Anything that makes us smarter about our players’ health is a win for us
