Plantar Pressure Mapping in Team Sports (Part 4):

How to Profile Rugby, Ice Hockey, and American Football Players with XSENSOR’s Intelligent Insoles


XSENSOR Technology's fourth webinar, part of the 'Plantar Pressure Mapping in Team Sports' series, delves into using the Intelligent Insoles system to assess and monitor rugby, ice hockey, and American football players.

The webinar explores the biomechanical intricacies of rugby, ice hockey, and American football, emphasizing the need for optimal performance and skill development. The discussion centers around plantar pressure mapping technology as a valuable tool for evaluating and monitoring players in these intermittent, high-intensity sports.

Rugby is a full-contact sport characterized by high levels of impact and physical contact interspersed with repeated bouts of high-intensity actions of short duration. Ice hockey is considered the fastest team sport in the world, characterized by repeated rapid starts and stops and direction changes. Lastly, American football is distinguished by the ability to complete repeated sprints and high-intensity actions such as accelerations and decelerations, together with tackling and impacts.

The webinar highlights how plantar pressure mapping technology, particularly XSENSOR's Intelligent Insoles, can aid sports biomechanists and coaches enhance player performance and mitigate injury risks.
