The team uses state of the art motion capture systems and high speed cameras to track and analyze elite athletes every movement.

The motion capture system uses twelve infra-red cameras to track reflective markers positioned over the athlete's body and is particularly useful for analysing football kicks and golfers swings.

High-motion cameras, recording at thousands of frames per second are also used to analyse movement in detail and prove useful when looking at rehabilitating inured athletes.
