In today’s sporting world margins are closer than ever and milliseconds matter when aiming for first place. From elite to grassroots sports, athletes are turning to technology to measure and assess their play to improve performance.

Traditionally, athletic trainers, physical therapists and more could only collect athletic performance data in a lab or clinical setting.

By leveraging wearable sensors and optical cameras, this real-time, objective data collection is now possible from the field.
