Bernat Buscà Safont-Tria, Marc Quintana Recasens, Josep Maria Padullés Rius


Technological advances applied to the world of sport have improved the experience of participants, coaches and spectators. The high-speed cameras and the video in slow motion allowed studying and improve learning processes and performance in sports, analyzing the movement and evaluating several factors in these processes. Thus, these cameras have helped to improve feedback supply to the training and learning sessions. Moreover, it constitute a valuable tool for both researchers and coaches to assess performance and measure the duration of events, velocities, accelerations and forces that are generated in human movement. This article aims to improve the knowledge of the reader in this area. It analyzes the various tools on the market, as well as smart mobile phones and applications based on the use of the camera, high-speed in lots of cases. It also refers to software used for movement analysis. The article seeks to highlight recent research that used this technology and suggest affordable and valuable practical applications for improving training and teaching processes in the modern sport.
