motion capture analysis
Motion capture is the process of recording the movement of athletes. Full body motion capture can determine the strengths and weaknesses of an athlete and is able to assist in adjusting their training accordingly. Motion capture can also identify ways how the athlete can improve his technique, posture, accuracy, power, balance etc and hence improve their speed, form and technique leading to gains in performance.
Why would you do this test? Movements are transferred from real life to virtual reality, motion learning and real time tracking. The motion capture system provides visual feedback for analyzing the athlete's performance and accuracy. In the future it gets even better as haptic feedback will be added making the experience even more real.
Who is this test recommended for? Motion capture analysis is recommended for top tier athletes that are looking to squeeze out every tiny performance issue holding them back from excellence.
How often should you repeat this test? Motion capture analysis does not have a specific time for testing or re-testing and should be tested on an as needed basis.
Which body parts are or can be tested? Motion capture can virtually test every part of the body.
What are the results of this test? Motion capture can determine the strengths and weaknesses of an athlete and is able to assist in adjusting their training accordingly. Motion capture can also identify ways how the athlete can improve his technique, posture, accuracy, power, balance etc and hence improve.
What does this help to improve? Sport motion analysis looks at the biomechanics of athletes using motion capture software, cameras, and markers. Many sports involve subtle, complex movements and high velocities. These are difficult to assess accurately using 2D video. Motion capture software allows for these movements to be assessed in depth in 3D.
