“Through this recovery system, we are able to know which player is running out of energy and substitute him. It is better if we substitute a player when he is comes from the green zone to yellow zone, and before going into the red zone. It makes the recovery faster,” said D’Souza.

For those not familiar with Iron Man, the superhero has a circular device attached to his heart that is the source of his power. Similarly, the Suns’ training staff uses spandex-like training vests that have a circular device on the heart that measures power.
Nike is rolling out the Apple “closed system” playbook for the Fuelband, with Zephyr’s intelligent multi-sensor, the BioHarness, as the open-platform alternative giving users as diverse as the US military, the NFL, and nursing homes are all able to configure to their particular needs.
