A newly developed sensor-equipped compression shirt will monitor the performance of an athlete and even broadcast the information for the fans to enjoy.
The shirt will consist of a small disc container the sensors, power source, Bluetooth transmitter, and memory storage. It will measure performance indicators such as heart rate, metabolism, and lung capacity, as well as allowing doctors to spot the early warning signs of dehydration.
The information will help coaches and trainers to fine tune workouts for maximum efficiency and least amount of risk, and could also allow teams to display their stats in real time, adding a whole new element to viewing games.
