Prometheus Medical Helps Fund GPS Vest for Hereford FC

Prometheus Medical is a sponsor for Hereford FC, supplying state of the art medical equipment to the club in the form of the latest GPS tracking technology.

The PlayerTek Vests contain a unit in the back that monitors the team’s performance by tracking their distance, speed, acceleration and deceleration performance. This enables decisions to be made during a training session or game, highlighting any need for modifications to the team and players, as well as identifying those at risk of injury by focusing on their top speed. The vests are made from a lightweight, breathable Lycra and are tight fitting to prevent the devices from moving for accurate data. This same technology is used by Liverpool FC, Birmingham City FC, rugby players, lacrosse teams and many other sports teams to provide unique performance insights.

We have supported Hereford FC for two seasons and are very proud to be helping the club to access the latest technology as a way to improve player skills, ultimately helping to create a better team.
