New technological implications of movement analysis in sports
Author(s): Sreeja U Bhasi
Methods used for biomechanical analysis are the key components of designing and structuring the training sessions for various relevant sports performance improvement. When comparing the other methods of performance analysis, the biomechanical feedback applications performs better in performance enhancement. This paper aims to explore the current methods used for biomechanical analysis of sports performance. Also, this paper discusses new technologies used for of motion capture and its application in sports performance analysis. The application of tools and materials recommended for biomechanical analysis in sports can help both quantitative and qualitative analysis of the performances. The 3D motion analysis system drones and post millennium smart devices are the current technologies used for movement analysis. Therefore, it has been recommended that tools and materials needed for biomechanical analyses should be made available to sport and exercise scientists to enable more quantitative research, for optimal performance. The limitations faced by the sports scientist, coaches and the athletes are also discussed in this paper.
