The RF radio is used to relay that data to a computer on the sideline, which then routes the info to an iPad app.

The idea is that Micoach will let coaches and trainers better analyze a player's peak level of performance, fitness level and what impact the game is having on his or her body.

"We are proud to partner with our long-term partner Major League Soccer to debut our latest innovation the micoach Elite System at the MLS All-Star Game and then across the league in 2013," Discovery News quoted Adidas Group CEO Herbert Hainer as saying in a press release.

"As the paths of sports and technology continue to converge, we are pleased to be pioneering in this area and continue to deliver cutting-edge innovations to teams and leagues worldwide," Hainer added.
