In the field of competitive sports, leading researchers and renowned coaches use High-Speed machine vision and MIKROTRON recording cameras from SVS-Vistek to analyze the complexity of human movements, especially in sports. These can be specifically optimized through motion analysis in many sports, such as tennis, baseball or gymnastics, and can thus enhance an athlete's performance. In sports industry, too, the findings from motion and gait analyses are a prerequisite for the development of new products, such as running shoes, sports equipment or high-tech sportswear.
In medicine, in the field of sports and movement the use of High-Speed cameras provides insights for basic biomechanical research, which are crucial for the production of better prostheses or orthopedic aids, for example.
SVS-Vistek's MIKROTRON High-Speed cameras are ideally suited for performing motion analysis. They reliably deliver meaningful images even under complex test conditions. With excellent image quality, highest light sensitivity and powerful interfaces, all requirements are met.
Within the definable regions of interest (ROI), it is possible to focus precisely on the part of the movement that is crucial for the analysis. For example, the focus is placed on the hand of a pitcher in baseball in order to analyze the moment of the throw in detail.
When using MIKROTRON recording cameras, videos with several thousand frames per second are possible. These are ideal for viewing a motion sequence in slow motion and for identifying details that cannot be achieved with conventional video cameras. With these slow-motion recordings, processes become visible that would otherwise remain undetected by the human eye. For example, the rotation of a golf ball in flight can be detected and thus, for example, the angle of impact during the tee shot can be optimized in a targeted manner.
The continuous recording of complete test series or long-lasting motion sequences requires long recording times. The MIKROTRON long-term recording system saves the images in real time directly to a ring buffer hard disk system, eliminating the need for time-consuming data readout from the camera.
