The Italian national team will be implementing a new innovative device into its training in view of the preparation for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil. It involves a revolutionary start-up with the name of Beast Technologies, presented by PoliHub group and the idea of its three aerospace engineers, Tommaso Finadri, Ernst Vittorio Haendler and Lucio Pinzoni.

Essentially, the device will help improve the training method thanks to a sensor that will be gathering the data of the players and instantly sending them to the computer via Bluetooth. Among the data, all the components for physical shape will be included, such as strength, speed and explosiveness.

With this, manager Cesare Prandelli will then be able to obtain accurate and detailed information about the form and stats of each of his players. Of course, it will significantly help him figure out what it is that needs to be worked on in order to arrive to Brazil in the best shape possible.

Contrary to the already existent pulse meters used in professional sports, moreover, the start-up not only can be applied to the player himself, but also can be attached to the weight or machine. Consequently, the player will be able to enjoy the comfort of not having to train with devices on his body.

“We are very pleased for contributing our synergy with the academic world, by giving the opportunity to implement devices made inside our borders while also benefiting in our own preparation to the most important event of all, the World Cup,” the FIGC vice-president Demetrio Albertini told the staff of Vivo Azzurro while presenting the device.
