Wearable technology hits the big leagues

Three Northeastern University engineering students have developed a data-logging compression shirt that helps baseball pitchers avoid elbow injuries. "The high-tech sheath, which is fitted with motion sensors and a web of conductive threads, tracks its wearer’s pitching mechanics during a game in real time, then relays that data to a monitor in the dugout. By analyzing the information, coaches can spot inconsistencies that could result in injury, whether as a result of fatigue or poor technique." Continue reading on ecouterre.com.

I would love to experience this project in action.
