Episode 124: Dr Andy McDonald chats Andrew Gray, Phil Graham-Smith and Daryl Carter. Todays panel discussion focusses on emerging technology from Sportscientia that harnesses the power of AI and machine learning to seamlessly capture gait analysis in real-world conditions and provide 3D depictions of the foot during both swing and stance phases of the gait cycle. This enables them to further break down the analysis of running into multi-directional movements including lateral, backwards, turning actions and more. Within the conversation case studies and examples of how this technology can benefit hamstring and lower limb injuries and monitoring is discussed.

Topics Discussed

  • What is Sportscientia
  • How does a tech layer function?
  • Lab v field based biomechanics assessment
  • Managing hamstring injuries with Sportscientia
  • How & why we should measure swing phase
  • Using a tech-layer to objectively assess footwear
