DARI Motion Provides Motion Capture Tech Without Markers, Force Plates

ACL injuries have long been a plague of Australian Rules Football, likely owing to the cuts, pivots and tackles inherent in the sport. Earlier this decade, however, the Carlton Blues club in Melbourne had designated physiotherapist Sam Rosengarten as its injury prevention coordinator worked with post-doctoral fellow Hossein Mokhtarzadeh on a new program informed by the installation of an innovative markerless motion capture system invented by DARI Motion.

KU lab uses ‘markerless motion capture’ technology to boost athletes’ performance

KU researchers are focusing their effort on sport performance. By measuring an athlete’s performance while conducting motions common to their sport, they can identify force generated during a pitcher’s windup. With that information, coaches and athletes can tell where the athletes’ strengths lie, where they may need improvement and even develop workout plans based on the information.
