Dartfish Video Technology

Physical Therapy

Dartfish technology allows In Motion to integrate the skills and knowledge of our physical therapy team with high-speed video analysis. Using Dartfish video, our physical therapists slow down human movement in order to detect running/walking deviations that occur too quickly to be detected by the naked eye.mediabook_cyclist-300x246

This specialized program can be covered by insurance on a prescription basis with a valid diagnosis.

Sports Performance

Baseball throw. Softball slide. Football punt. Swim stroke. The list of sports mechanical processes that can be captured by Dartfish video analysis is endless.

Coverage of sporting events often makes use of StroMotion™ captures of divers, volleyball and other sports for our entertainment. In the hands of In Motion’s trainers, Dartfish becomes a powerful tool for seeing weaknesses and demonstrating improvements.

For our athletic patients, In Motion’s trained staff use Dartfish in combination with the HydroWorx® pool and the wide array of sports training equipment to capture human motion at key points of a process. Athletes are videotaped to capture the way they swing, stroke, etc. That footage is analyzed. After being instructed in proper technique, the athlete is videotaped a second time. The trainer produces a Mediabook for the athlete to take home that shows proper technique with instructive comments at key positions.

So, for a swim stroke, Dartfish would break the stroke down from the time the arm lifts from the swimmer’s hip to key positions until the catch and stroke are completed and the arm returns to it’s starting position or its endpoint.
