PERFORMANCE AND MEDICAL TEAMS INCLUDE THE PLAYING SURFACE AS A PERFORMANCE TOOL

HELPING

THE RAW PLAYER PLATFORM

The Raw Player Platform is a first to market solution allowing elite sports clubs to frequently test and monitor their playing surface conditions with the focus on visualising the biomechanical affect the surface has on the players performance and well being. 

Raw Stadia provides the Platform, the Testing Technology and Training so anyone can test the surface before sessions or games.

The conditions are instantly visualised on the system, so you will know before the session begins how the surface will influence your players performance before they have entered the field. 

Any risks to the players are highlighted on the virtual player and advice is generated instantly from the Raw Performance Team on how to adapt to minimise any potential risks. 

THE PLAYING SURFACES' INFLUENCE

The surface conditions change daily, whether its because the Grounds Team have been maintaining the surface, the weather conditions have changed or the surface has been recently used, the affect on the player will be different. 

This is why we recommend testing before sessions rather than testing once per month when looking into the player / surface interactions. 

When thinking about the bio-mechanical affect of running on different surfaces, it is important to think about the kinetic energy return from the soil (which will differ pitch to pitch), as this will influence the muscular and respiratory fatigue of the players. 

 

The firmness of the surface will affect the shock in the lower limbs which is important when planning for recovery and also it will also influence mechanical and physiological loads. 

The stability of the surface will influence the impacts and explosiveness of inertial movements.

THE SURFACE IS THE MISSING PIECE OF THE DATA PUZZLE

THE TESTING TECHNOLOGY

We provide the latest technology on the market and staff training so you can test all of your natural and artificial surfaces' as frequently as you wish.

You will be provided with the most easy to use and relevant equipment on the market, a data input tablet and arm strap so you can input the data straight from the field, and a customised travel case so you can store and travel with the equipment between sites.  

Recently released is the new Raw SFRT Rotational Traction Tester, which replicates the players current boot designs, stud formation. This provides the Nm value of when the boot rotates sharply on the surface. It also measures the force needed for the studs to penetrate the soil which is needed to avoid slipping during inertial movements. 

If you are a Raw Player Gold customer and there is a development in new technology, we simply replace the equipment you have, so you are always at the forefront of pitch testing technology.

THE RAW INJURY MONITORING SYSTEM

Our Raw Performance Team have developed an injury monitoring system where you can log injuries as they happen on the field. Log the injury type, reason for the injury, the severity of the injury, the predicted return to pitch date and the location on the pitch where the injury took place.

Once the injuries have been logged you can monitor the trends alongside your surface data. 

SOFTWARE INTEGRATIONS

The system enables for you to build up data on the surface conditions to run alongside your medical and performance data. The Raw Stadia Platform can be integrated with the current medical or GPS platforms you are using such as SAP or SoccerLabs. 

Building up consistent standardised data helps you learn in the live environment on how the surface is really affecting your players. You will spot trends with metrics such as HSR and RPE scoring, as well as velocity in fatigue and time spent in maximum heart rate amongst others
