Gloucester Rugby's long-standing relationship with OPRO took another leap forward this year with the squad using the next generation of intelligent mouthguards. The club are using the cutting-edge technology of the PROTECHT system, embedded within an OPRO+ mouthguard, to support improvements in player welfare.
The OPRO+ mouthguard, embedded with PROTECHT’s state-of-the-art sensor technology, accurately identifies and reports all head impacts received by players in training or competitive matches. As a club who pride themselves on player welfare, the PROTECHT system provides the management team with a source of data that can help to bring the players up to match intensity safely.
As one of the pioneers in the Premiership to use the technology, Gloucester Rugby welcomed in the One Show to a training session to see the innovative and forward-thinking approach in action.
The feature is due to air on the One Show on Thursday 25 March, with the show starting at 7pm. (BBC1)
