Equipment and software
3D and 6D Motion Analysis Systems
The Vicon system uses multiple high definition, high speed cameras to track the location of a large number of reflective skin markers in three dimensions. Collecting at frame rates up to 1000 frames per second we can accurately track the movement of markers in a wide variety of situations.
AMTI LG6-2-1 and OR6-5-1 force platforms simultaneously measure three force components along the xyz axes and three moment components about the xyz axes. Capture and analysis is via ADInstuments Chart or synced through Vicon Nexus.
Noraxon Ultium 16 channel wireless EMG system for synchronised collection of muscle activity with movement.
High speed video
An Edgertronics camera allows collection of synchronised high speed video.
STATSport Apex Pro GPS player tracking system for game analysis and player stats.
Dartfish Live software.
Timing Light System
Developed here at the School of Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Sciences incorporates a micro-controller and LCD timer display panel cabled to tripod-mounted light gates and utilises infrared photoelectric switches. This system provides instant, accurate split times, lap times and count laps for comparison.
The school has access to various software including Dartfish for technique and game analysis as well as MATLAB and Visual 3D for a range of post analysis.
