I'm working on a project were we are trying to attach accelerometers to soccer players and capture various aspects of movement data. Breadboarded circuits are coming along nicely and I'm now looking for how to best protect sensors we can mount on players. (All wire at the moment unfortunately - BT next.)
Although I can find ways to protect the sensor for sensor damaging impact (we are essentially interested in player impacts with the ball or ground) there are other aspects of protection I'm not sure about. Any recommendations on how to protect from moisture without increasing bulk too much, minimizing cushioning which could affect the data and of course avoid adding anything that could injure the player? I have come across other examples of movement studies, but they have been by musicians or other situations that do not include outdoor weather and sweaty bodies.
