Performance Optimization

Analyzing body motion is sports is crucial to improving your performance, avoiding injuries, and maximizing your comfort.

For individuals or teams who want to focus on athletic performance, we have several services to offer. Many of our staff members were or are still high-level athletes and they understand your needs very well. From team screening to individual strength, power, balance, 3D posture analysis or simply orthotics that fits in your specialized shoes without adding too much weight, we’ve got you covered.

3D Optical Motion Capturing

We offer a 3D postural analysis. Whether it is sitting, walking, running, sprinting, skating, dancing, biking, or any other posture, we will analyze postures relevant to your daily activities.

ANALYSIS OF YOUR POSTURE AND YOUR SPECIFIC SPORTS MOTION

Optical Motion Capture device for 3D posture analysisAnalyzing body motion in sports is crucial to improving your performance, avoiding injuries and maximizing your comfort. On account of the aforementioned, having the right data is vital: the trainer, fitter, or specialist requires abundant, detailed information in order to assess the athlete’s performance and provide valuable advice. This assessment is particularly useful after an injury or during a recovery period.

In our experience, relying on video analysis applications should be avoided in motion analysis. A video-based system is a 2D system. The actions that take place in front of the camera are projected onto a 2D plane. The problem is that anatomical points do not move in a 2D plane: they move freely within a 3D space. Even seemingly ‘flat’ movements like a knee or ankle during a pedaling cycle have a third-dimension component which is very relevant when studying a motion in an effort to avoid injuries and boost performance. Therefore, a high-quality analysis system should always involve 3D tracking, and video recording should always be considered as an auxiliary system for visualization purposes or overall review.

Training Program

In order to optimize your athletic performance, specific muscles must be targeted and reinforced. Often times, training without guidance can lead to athletes training muscles that are unrelated to the sport at hand, or worse even, ignoring the important muscles altogether. Our team of professionals will help you and your team improve your performance by determining which muscles need reinforcement, and which exercises will help reach performance goals in the most efficient way possible. All this rolled up into a customized, high-quality, training program.
