JOHAN SPORTS MODULE – FORMS

In order to get a complete picture of the performance of a player it is important to measure the:

 

  • external load: what has a player done?
  • internal load: how did the player feel?

 

The external load (movements over the pitch) is measured by our JOHAN trackers.
We measure the internal load by heart rate measurements and the subjective response of players –  this is done within our Forms module.

 

From sports scientific research we know that this subjective response to the activity is a great indicator for exertion and recovery. We have adopted the most common forms:

 

  • Exertion (RPE): to measure the exertion of a certain event (training or match)
  • Recovery (RPR): to measure the recovery of a player
  • Injury: to measure the severity and occurence of injuries

FORM MODULE – EXERTION

The subjective response of exertion is measured after the training or match by grading the level of exertion from 1 (very light) to 10 (extremely hard).

FORM MODULE -RECOVERY

Recovery is measured by grading the following aspects on a daily basis from 1 (feeling very good) to 10 (feeling very bad):

 

  • Muscle soreness
  • Mental fitness
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep
  • Appetite

FORM MODULE -INJURY

Injuries can be logged by filling in a form with the following characteristics:

 

  • Location
  • Severity
  • Recurrence
  • Out of play (nr of days)
  • Cause (contact or not)
  • Description

HOW ARE THE INDICATORS OF THE FORM MODULE MEASURED?

All these forms can be filled in in our online environment. Each player has a personal login to fill out the recovery and/or exertion form. The environment is completely responsive, so it is easy to fill out on a mobile phone. However, we want to ease the input for players as best as we can, therefore we are developing a mobile app dedicated for players to fill out and manage forms over time.
