In our latest white paper: “Introduction to Inertial Movement Analysis” we delve deep into the intricacies of Inertial Movement Analysis (IMA) and its transformative impact on sports science.

Why Inertial Movement Analysis Matters

Since the advent of Global Positioning Technology (GPS) in athlete tracking, there has been a continuous search for more precise, more informative metrics. Traditional methods like PlayerLoad™ have served well but come with limitations, particularly in detecting high-intensity movements. This is where Inertial Movement Analysis (IMA) comes into play, offering a nuanced view of athlete performance, beyond what conventional metrics provide.

Inside the IMA White Paper:

  • Understanding the Basics: We start with a clear, accessible introduction to IMA. Learn how it captures every nuance of an athlete’s movement, from acceleration and deceleration to intricate changes in direction.
  • Technical Deep-Dive: Our white paper goes beyond the basics, exploring the sophisticated combination of accelerometer and gyroscope data, enhanced with Kalman filtering techniques, to paint a complete picture of an athlete’s movement dynamics.
  • Practical Applications: Discover how IMA is applied in various sports, from American Football to Soccer, and how it’s revolutionizing training protocols and performance assessments worldwide.
  • Research Insights: Get an exclusive look at our latest study involving physically active participants, detailed data collection methods, and insightful results that validate the efficacy of IMA in real-world scenarios.
  • Future Directions: We don’t just stop at current applications. Our white paper explores potential future advancements in IMA, offering a glimpse into the evolving landscape of sports science.
