Motion metrix 3D analysis system
Advanced data capture camera system used the store for greater understanding of individual athletes movement. Looks into actions that the eye cannot pick up with accuracy.
Anatomy in motion
Not so much a training system, but a different angle on improving how the foot should inter act with the ground. Many issues up through the body can stem from the lower limbs reaction to load. Gary Ward and the team at Anatomy In Motion have devised a process of re-educating the foot and ankle to improve that initial connection. Used at The Active Foot Company as part of athlete coaching and foot mobility training.
