Smart Gloves

Smart Gloves

Wide receivers have to make sure that they catch the football correctly, or the ball can easily bounce out of their grip. Coaches need to make sure their receivers are catching with their fingertips, and not their palms. To aid in the coaching of receivers, we are developing a "smart glove" that will detect where, when, and how hard the football is impacting the hand during a catch. This will lend coaches and players a better understanding of what is going on during a particular catch, enabling them to train more effectively.
