(WFI) Australian movement technology company DorsaVi, known for its wearable sensor technology, has signed a deal with Sao Paulo FC in Brazil.

The wearable technology, called ViPerform, is designed to "get injured sports stars back up and running," according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Players for Manchester United, Cricket Australia, and several Australian Football League teams already use DorsaVi's "pioneering sensor technology."

ViPerform transmits analyses of player movement and muscle activity in real-time providing coaches with a precise picture of an injured player's path to recovery.

This week, DorsaVi also won clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration to sell its ViMove product which assists in the treatment of back pain.

Chelsea has launched a new website for meetings and event organisers as a way to improve technologies and delegate experiences at Stamford Bridge.

The new site is compatible with smart phones, tablets and desktop devices. It features information on over 60 meeting spaces, restaurants and accommodation options, and meeting packages and promotions available at the stadium.

The club tells Conference News that the website is designed with "event organisers in mind" and even incorporates a "Room Finder" function that matches a delegate's meeting requirements with the "most suitable space available."

"We are living in an ever-more digital age and event organizers and delegates alike expect their experience at Chelsea Football Club to be outstanding from the beginning of their user-journey," said Chelsea's head of venue and brand Simon Hunter.

He added: "We are delighted to have achieved this via the new website and recent investments in technology across the entire Stamford Bridge complex."
