Research Question

  • “What are the influences of using GPS as a data collection tool on the performance and injury management of elite athletes?”

  • How does the use of GPS influence the fitness and strength of players?

  • How does the use of GPS aid in tactical and strategical analysis?

  • How does the use of GPS assist in the rehabilitation of players from injuries?


Literature Research Areas


Methodology

  • Survey Research – Questionnaire

  • 6 survey sections

  • 146 Surveys sent to clubs

  • Data analysis

    • Leximancer

    • Calculated percentage of quantitative data


Methodology (cont.)


Results

  • 60% of clubs using GPS to manage injuries at training

  • Hamstring strains account for 16% of playing time missed

  • Hamstring recurrence rate of 35%

  • Groin pain occurs second only to hamstring strains


Results

  • Rotations have increased over 250%

  • 70% of AFL teams monitor fatigue

  • 20% of NRL teams monitor fatigue

  • Over all 53% of teams

  • Primary consideration for rotating players in their RSA (Repeated Sprint Ability)


Results

  • Players are hit/tackled by a force over 10g

  • 20% of clubs monitor collisions during games

  • GPS is used to assist with player rehabilitation


Results – GPS Units (cont.)

Figure 1 - Leximancer Results from Question 50: To what extent do you reply on GPS data when planning player rehabilitation from injury?


Results

“Where possible we try to eventually build up the rehab player’s workload/intensity to match that of game/main training session” (Club 1),

“Used to monitor fitness capacity of returning player and his workload during rehab phase” (Club 20),

“Must reach game level demands prior to return” (Club 26) and

“Need to meet previous benchmarks before return” (Club 13).


Results

  • 73% of clubs use GPS for injury prevention

  • Fatigue can elevate chances of injury

  • Only 40% of teams are monitoring players for fatigue

  • 21% of clubs immediately remove a fatigued player from the field


Conceptual Framework – Part 1


Conceptual Framework – Part 2


Conceptual Framework – Part 3


Expected Outcomes

  • Link to be established between the 3 parts of the conceptual framework

  • GPS is a key data collection tool for player performance

  • GPS has key role to play in injury prevention
