Sports Biomechanics Vision Paper

Faster, higher, stronger?, our newest vision paper, looks to identify the key trends and developments in motion tracking technology that will have the biggest impact on the sports community.

Drawing on Vicon’s own experts and industry voices from across academia and professional practice, the vision paper provides a range of perspectives and predictions for the next 12 months and up to 2025, highlighting the changes we can expect to see in how motion tracking is used in sports settings. For example, the paper looks at how:

  • App-based tracking solutions will increasingly make tracking data immediately available in the field
  • Tracking data will help build a comprehensive picture of what contributes to the highest levels of elite performance to optimise development pathways for athletes
  • Innovations from data and computer science will help create reference data to support real-time ‘biofeedback’ and break new ground in global data sharing between biomechanists
