The Spurs utilized advanced technology to stay on the cutting edge of player health during the season.

Canon ultrasound gave the team’s doctors and technicians “the ability to take what would normally be already top-notch rehabilitation or management of an injury or maintenance and take it to another level.”

The ultrasound gives real-time assessment capabilities which means a player’s health and stability can be determined in moments. This affords trainers, technicians, and coaches best practices to player longevity quicker with more objective data.

In a year when the Spurs lost time early and had to make up for it with a grueling 40 games in 68 days consisting of multiple back-to-backs, little rest, and no time to regroup, the team’s health was paramount.
