CONTEMPLAS video-based systems support coaches and athletes in training and competition

For more than 17 years, we have been perfecting the movement sequences of top athletes with our video-based analysis systems according to the motto PERFORM. ANALYSIS. IMPROVE.

Whether in the daily training process, in performance diagnostics, for competition monitoring or even in science our products are multi-talented. Our motion analysis systems are used in a wide variety of sports, whether on land or on water. Coaches and athletes benefit from the unlimited flexibility of the systems – from simple video analysis to high-end 3D analysis, everything is possible!

According to Stijn Corten, performance analyst of the national team of the Flemish Swimming Federation. The motion analysis systems offer analysts, coaches and athletes “completely new possibilities for the performance assessment of high-performance athletes and their training control”.

Video-based analysis systems support training

In daily training, we help coaches and athletes to improve movement techniques and thus increase their performance. By integrating video-based analysis systems into existing training processes, we provide coaches with a wide range data to analyze their athletes. Our systems enable coaches to communicate clearly, offering technique analysis, feedback training, and real-time movement data. All movement data is captured with one or more cameras in real time.

Using large monitors near the pitch or poolside, coaches can provide athletes with immediate feedback and visual correction aids.

For self-directed video feedback training, athletes can start the video recordings themselves by integrating a buzzer. Subsequently they can view their movement sequences in detail from different perspectives and at different playback speeds. Through continuous time reflection, athletes achieve a rapid improvement of the movement. This method therefore also makes it possible to do without a coach, as the athlete can see and assess him/herself.

More quality in performance diagnostics

Performance diagnostic tests have become the methodological standard in athletic training in all sports. Established test procedures include standard jumping strength tests such as Drop Jump, Squat Jump and Counter Movement Jump.

In football, renowned top clubs such as FC Bayern München, use our video-based jumping strength measurements by using high-speed cameras and force plates to record objectively comparable performance values for the differentiated recording of high-speed strength behavior.

Coaches and therapists evaluate the quality of the executed movements by using strength curves, angles and synchronous video recordings. An analysis creates an overview, transparency and a basis for decision-making.

Make decisions in competition

Our TEMPLO® software aids quick, safe decisions in competitions, like at Taekwondo Championships in Paris, France. High-resolution video is used to precisely review selected competition scenes from various angles, aiding referee decisions.

3D-Technology for research in elite sport

The BMX starting performances of top international athletes are studied using video-based 3D movement analysis at Germany’s BMX Supercross track. At the start, in addition to the first pedal stroke, the correct starting and acceleration position is also decisive. The athletes’ jumping behavior is recorded in training with several cameras from different perspectives on a supercross ramp. Various kinetic and kinematic parameters are analyzed to optimize the position on the BMX: In the video image, the body position is additionally displayed with a superimposed 3D body model, with which the movement can be mapped in detail and independently of the plane of movement.

Whether in team or individual sports, CONTEMPLAS helps athletes, coaches and scientists to realize their potential and maximize their performance.

CONTEMPLAS is not only known for its system solutions, but also for its all-round service, which accompanies the customer from the initial idea through planning and implementation to the first analysis.

In this way, numerous projects with renowned customers have been successfully carried out over the past decades. This also includes the Aquatopia project for professional swimming analyses in Aalst, Belgium.

In the three-year project, CONTEMPLAS already supported the architectural planning and the construction phase of the “analysis pools”. A professional aquasport movement analysis system was installed in two swimming pools, which is used intensively by coaches and athletes in Belgium to document training progress and improve performance.
