New Sleeve for Baseball Pitchers

There is a new arm sleeve for baseball pitchers.  It uses simple technology to monitor elbow fatigue in baseball pitchers.  Several MLB teams are trialing this technology.   Here is an excerpt describing The Sleeve:

"....The Sleeve can not only capture things like arm speed and release point, but it can calculate the angles of the elbow and shoulder. It can directly measure, in real time, the forces acting on the ulnar collateral ligament."

It it speculated this technology could decrease the number of pitching injuries including the number of Tommy John surgeries performed.  How will this impact Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy?  It could be an excellent rehab training tool.

Good luck to your favorite MLB team!!
