Summary:
At the Centre for Sports Engineering Research at Sheffield Hallam University, the team is combining innovative science and engineering techniques, to help elite athletes reach the very top of their game. The team use state of the art motion capture systems and high speed cameras to track and analyze elite athletes every movement. The motion capture system uses twelve infra-red cameras to track reflective markers positioned over the athlete's body and is particularly useful for analyzing football kicks and golfers swings. High-motion cameras, recording at thousands of frames per second are also used to analyze movement in detail and prove useful when looking at rehabilitating injured athletes.
