In todays sports environment, coaches and athletes are always looking for new ways to gain a competitive edge. Motion capture technology is the next frontier in athletic training. Motion capture is the science of capturing a persons movement by attaching electronic sensors to various body parts, and sending that data to a computer for analysis and animation.
Two sports have proven to benefit from the advances in motion-capture technology -- softball and baseball. Founded by Zig Ziegler, a kinesiologist and sports biomechanics expert, Motion DNA has developed advanced systems that are designed for coaches, trainers and athletes. These systems are valuable tools for analyzing the athletic movements found in softball, baseball, golf, running, and much more. This analysis provides solutions for preventing injuries, identifying physical limitations, diagnosing pre-existing injuries related to biomechanics, and improving physical performance levels.
Fans, media and players will get a hands-on preview of the latest technology that is revolutionizing the sports world and meet their favorite players from the Chicago Bandits, as well as NPF All-Stars.
