Sports Biomechanics

Motion Analysis provides accurate, expandable motion capture systems for the Sports Biomechanics market. Whether you are looking to measure an individual client’s biomechanics in a particular sport or the entire team play action, Motion Analysis has a system to suit your needs.

Sports Biomechanics Motion Capture Systems & Software

The intricacies, complexities, and speed of sports biomechanics demand a robust, accurate and flexible system in order to meet the data needs of sports trainers, researchers, and coaches. The motion capture systems from Motion Analysis are customizable to cover the largest fields of play with multiple athletes, to the smallest and most subtle of movements of a single martial artist. Recommended systems for Sports Biomechanics are the Raptor-12HS, Raptor-4s, Raptor-E and the Kestrel. Discover why Nike, the American Sports Medicine Institute, the U.S. Bowling Congress, and Titleist have all chosen Motion Analysis.
