Sport Science


Sport science

Sports science studies how the healthy human body works during exercise, and how sport and physical activity promote health from cellular to whole body perspectives. The study of sports science traditionally incorporates areas of physiology, psychology, anatomy, sports biomechanics, biochemistry and biokinetics. Through the study of science and sport, researchers have developed a greater understanding on how the human body reacts to exercise, training, different environments and many other stimuli. Sports biomechanics or sport biomechanical analysis focuses on the physics of sports.


Sports science with inertial sensor technology

Xsens MVN  is a full-body motion analysis system with 17 inertial motion trackers (MTx). Based on a biomechanical model, MVN Analyze provides 3D joint angles, body Center of Mass as well as spatial parameters such as segment position and orientation, facilitating sports biomechanics. For Sports Biomechanics it is recommended to use our MVN Link system. The MVN Link has an update rate of 240 Hz, allowing for detailed data analysis of high dynamic movements. The wireless range out in the field is up to 150 m, this basically covers an entire sports track. It is also possible to connect the MVN BIOMECH Link to a tablet and walk an entire marathon, riding a race bike or a horse for a long distance or ski downhill. With the battery life of 10 hours, almost everything is possible.

Xsens MTw Awinda is the next generation wireless motion trackers from Xsens. With full-body Velcro straps, each MTw can be securely strapped into place onto the body. With highly accurate orientation and sensor component output data, the MTw can be used anywhere for all kinds of applications, including sports science.
