zFlo is proud to announce a new partnership with MotionMetrix, a Swedish startup focused on the analysis of running.  The MotionMetrix system uses 2 depth sensing cameras (Kinect) to capture detailed information about runners' stride, loading, and gait characteristics.  Additionally, it is important to note that the MotionMetrix system operates automatically, allowing the user to spend more time discussing results with his or her patients, and less time manually interpretting data.

Measurement Fundamentals

High-end athletes are constantly measured - it's largely how we determine if a player is a star or not - at least most of the time. Game performance is the most basic and most common measure of a player, and the science of performance has moved well beyond simple stats into the "advanced metrics" area - see WAR or other new-age stats. This is a good thing. More information is rarely bad, unless of course it's bad information. Putting that aside for a second I want to touch on a simple but often forgotten concept - the efficiency of how coaches and other performance professionals obtain measurements matters. A lot! Any coach will know what I mean by this - and any coach or trainer that has invested in technology will definitely understand.
