The NBA and other professional sports leagues are increasingly recognizing the advantage of collecting biometric data from their athletes, and this has led executives of Whoop to center themselves as the wearable of choice for professional athletes.

Different injuries occur across the different sports and it’s important to be able to detect them early. Monitoring an athlete’s data allows coaches to diagnose and address problems before they turn into an injury that’s difficult to come back from.

Quality Sports Tech Options For Active Older Adults

There are plenty of athletic activities accessible to older adults, and technology is ready to help
