The purpose behind biomechanics is to break down body movements and analyzing how those movements occur. For exercise and sport purposes, applications can be used with a simple video recording of movements such as a squat, a backhand in tennis, and even a pitching delivery. The application itself has features that help provide detailed information using the video in a slow motion fashion while measuring joint angles and several other variables.
Why is this useful? Well the human eye can only see so much. When video is applied, it provides a greater opportunity to break movements down in detail, thus allowing a coach to provide you with more accurate information to improve your performance. Whatever your sport or choice of exercise, a biomechanics analysis can be applied to improve performance.
In my Undergraduate studies I have participated in various biomechanics projects that has provided me with a great amount of experience and practice in working with individuals and their performance goals.
