XSENSOR Technology's third online seminar, part of the 'Plantar Pressure Mapping in Team Sports' series, delves into using the Intelligent Insoles system for assessing and profiling basketball players.
The webinar explores the biomechanical intricacies of basketball, emphasizing the need for optimal performance and skill development. The discussion centers around plantar pressure mapping technology as a valuable tool for evaluating and monitoring basketball players.
Basketball is a sport of intermittent high-intensity activities characterized by continuous direction changes, accelerations, decelerations, short sprints, and high-impact movements such as jumping. High-intensity running and agility represent a crucial performance factor from a biomechanics perspective, and the ability to maintain an efficient movement output repeatedly during the game is of fundamental importance.
The webinar highlights how plantar pressure mapping technology, particularly XSENSOR’s Intelligent Insoles, can aid sports biomechanists and coaches in enhancing player performance and mitigate injury risks.
