U.S. Soccer Team Tracks Movement to Prevent Injury Onset

When the U.S. Men’s National Team runs onto the field today in an elimination World Cup match against Belgium, doctors will track their every footstep, leap and dribble.

Using matchbox-sized GPS tracking devices, team physician George Chiampas can follow his players’ every move to help keep injuries at bay -- especially those that could keep his best out of the tournament.
