Taking the fear out of the sport: the Injury Risk Monitor from SAP helps athletes and leagues deal with the biggest threat to the game.
When Neymar, the Brazilian soccer star, was carried off the field during last year’s World Cup on a stretcher with a fractured vertebra caused by a kick in the back, teammates and fans around the world were horrified. A players’ worst nightmare had come true; not only did Brazil end up losing a world championship, but such a serious injury could end his career or cripple him for life.
Fortunately Neymar recovered completely, but how can he reduce the risk of further, long-term damage to his back as he continues to play in a game known for its rough and tumble tactics?
