Sensor-Fitted Baseball Shirt Tracks Pitching Technique, Prevents Injuries

Engineering students have created an interactive baseball that could indicate potentially hazardous motions and poor technique.

Engineering students from Northeastern University have woven conductive threads into a baseball shirt fitted with motion-tracking sensors, which track a pitcher’s mechanics during throws. Relaying the data back to a tracking system, the team is able to analyze information that could indicate potentially hazardous motions and poor technique.
