The Concept: Football Reimagined

INSAIT JOY Smart Shin Guards seamlessly integrate enhanced processing units and advanced sensor technology with shin guards. And through a mobile application, INSAIT JOY provides players and coaches with 16 core metrics, enabling them to gain a competitive edge by unlocking a deeper understanding of their strength and wearknesses, thus maximising performance like never before.

A concept born in 2018, INSAIT JOY seeks to incorporate player tracking technology with gamifications and incentives, in order to

  • Make advanced wearable technology accessible to everyone;
  • Stimulate and incentivise player development and engagement; and
  • Connect the players and strengthen the existing football communities.

Since the concept being realised into a product 3 years ago, INSAIT JOY has been trusted by thousands of football players, clubs and federations worldwide. Our concept and our cutting-edge technology have garnered recognition from esteemed organizations, earning us a spot as one of the five finalists in the 2022 UEFA Reimagine Football Challenge - an initiative launched by UEFA, KNVB, City Football Group and Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Why Smart "Shin Guards"?

Unlike many other football wearable technologies that place trackers in vests, calf sleeves or cleat straps, INSAIT JOY places the trackers in shin guards. A key factor is that with the form of a standard football equipment, INSAIT JOY smart shin guards are designed to make the player (or opponents) feel nothing at all other than a fine pair of shin guards. They protect the user while at the same time measuring performance. The trackers are 100% embedded so that players can enjoy the game while it won’t give them any feeling of foreign objects.

"We thought about many different hardware forms than shin guards at the early stage of development, such as vests, calf sleeves, trackers on cleat straps, knees, or even ankles." David Chen, CEO of Gengee explains. "But in the end, shin guards stand out as the optimal solution, because we don't want the users to feel distracted by some foreign objects, or keep worrying that their trackers may fall off, damaged or hurt themselves or even the opponents during body contacts."
