Biomechanics

Biomechanics

Biomechanics is the scientific discipline which studies mechanical parameters of human motion. In sport, it can help to improve performance by means of developing more effective motion technique as well as to avoid injury.

Biomechanists can use a wide range of tools: instrumented measurements using force platforms or telemetry systems, 3D video analysis, speed guns and high speed cameras, electro-miography and pressure distribution systems. Testing can take place both within the lab as well as the field which could include analysing the performance of an athlete in training and competition analysis. This can help diagnose any problems which might be limiting sporting potential and with close consultation with the athletes coach, training patterns may be altered to rectify the problem. The impact this can have on an athletes' performance is significant.

The English Institute of Sport has a growing number of Biomechanists working with a vast number of sports.
