    Low-cost wearable sensors that are capable of accurately and robustly measuring and monitoring various markers of health or wellbeing will allow a new era of sports medicine provision. Technological advancements now allow clinicians to monitor individual athletes and groups or teams within a range of environments (clinic, home, training or matches/competition). Clinicians can examine movement and physiological data in order to assess and monitor injuries/rehabilitation or improve performance levels. This chapter will provide an overview of the available wearable sensors that can be used by sports medicine clinicians, which will help familiarize clinicians with the types of devices they could employ within their practice. We discuss the types of sensors, their current use and future applications in sports medicine.
