Rehab 2014 Recap: Video Analysis Lab


For part of Rehab 2014, the therapists and trainers broke into small groups to learn about three different video analysis programs available for the iPad and iPhone.

·      Coach’s Eye
·      Ubersense
·      Dartfish

My group was lead by Briana and focused on Coach’s Eye.  It’s $4.99 on the App Store with the option to purchase other application add-on features.

“Record it.  Break it down.  Get better.”

The video analysis technology allows instant feedback.  You can record a movement, play it back in slow motion, pause the video, draw lines, measure angles, and instantly send feedback to the athlete or client.  Videos can be saved to your iPad/iPhone Camera Roll or instantly emailed and uploaded to social media sites. 

Another cool feature is that you can view thousands of other videos from people around the world using this app.  The app allows side-by-side video comparison to compare movement changes, progress, pre and post-op, healthy vs. injured, preseason vs. midseason, etc.

Video analysis is the future!  It’s a pretty cool program and I am excited to start using it with my personal training clients and future TPI assessments.

Have you tried any other video analysis apps?  Which is your favorite?  What do you use it for?
