Gears Soccer Biomechanics

Breakdown each kick for injury prevention, strength, agility and accuracy. Gears training analytics helps athletes perform at peak professional levels.


Why Is Gears the Best Soccer Kinematics Tool?

Gears soccer motion tracking captures the technical skill of an athlete in full-body analysis and details each nuance of their movement and form. This is the kind of kinetic and kinematic data that will change a soccer player’s effectiveness for the rest of their career.


Kicking: The Role of Both Legs

One thing that is clear is that joint velocities and movement timing affect performance – and when the performance goal changes (speed, distance, accuracy), whole-body kinetic and kinematic strategies adjust.

What Makes Gears Soccer Biomechanics So Accurate?

Measurements, Not Estimates

Gears soccer motion capture measures the entirety of each kick in full 3D. See each movement from every angle with micromillimeter accuracy. Gears provides hard data and meaningful measurements of each shot, pass, and dribble. This is how you unlock the next tier of soccer performance.

Data. Lots of it.

Gears analyzes over 600 images per movement (in less than a second). Tracking each athlete head to toe, the data provides invaluable insight, including what cannot be seen with the naked eye or any other technology.

Optical Motion Tracking

Gears is an optical (camera-based) soccer motion tracking system, powered by eight 1.7 megapixel cameras running at 360 frames per second. It offers numerous advantages over other approaches, including:

  • Custom-made, comfortable soccer compression suits
  • Measurements as fine as 0.2mm
  • No wires attached to the user
  • Simple system setup
  • “Absolute positioning,” with zero drift (unlike inertial systems)

Full Body Data

Use the world’s most popular soccer motion capture tech to measure body motion with unmatched fidelity:

  • Weight transfer
  • Body position at key phases
  • Kinimatic sequencing
  • Kick-to-kick differences
  • Leg speed
  • Joint angles and velocities
  • Plant leg mechanics
  • Arm movements

Compare Movements

Compare a user’s movement side-by-side with previously recorded data in fully rendered 3D—a powerful tool for measuring progress over time or comparing a player’s current form with proper techniques. Past and present data are synchronized during playback, for frame-by-frame comparison of key movement elements.
