The sports bras worn by the players were created to measure their performance on the court, either in training or in games. The support has a GPS system inside that allows to collect all the necessary information about the physical state of the player, and sends it in real time to a program that is controlling them.
GPS Sports is the company that launched them on the market and their product is being used by big soccer clubs. It is a faster and more effective way to know how fast the player is, how their heart rate performs, their body temperature and how it moves, among other data.

The bras are made of neoprene. The data collected by the device are very important to improve the performance of the soccer players since it is possible to correct erroneous movements inside the court and even prevent injuries.
