The Use of Tracking Systems for Performance Diagnostics - 5 Advantages

With the help of tracking systems, the effectiveness of a training or improvement of athletes can easily be identified. Collected tracking data throughout trainings can also be used in the context of performance diagnostics. This procedure is called in-situ testing”, which is only one of many advantages of KINEXON’s technology.

5 Advantages of KINEXON PERFORM LPS for Performance Diagnostics:

1. Logistics

No supplemental equipment is required other than the installed system. Furthermore, no additional space or preparation time is needed — the diagnostics automatically take place during a training session. During a regularly held training session, all exercises relevant to the diagnostics can be filtered.
Additional pro: No extra workload on players or staff when conducting the performance diagnostics.

2. Flexibility

With KINEXON, it is possible to analyze many different sport-specific exercises in various sports: Jumps in handball, running performance in football and sprints in ice hockey — to name just a few examples. This is done completely automatically by means of display in clear dashboards. It also enables the comparison of players, positions and team values.

3. Real conditions

Although in-situ testing does not provide completely standardized data, the results collected under real conditions are of much higher significance. After all, you don’t want to know what the player is capable of under optimal conditions in the testing lab, but rather what performance he delivers on the field, court or pitch. Also, you see whether the training is effective for an athlete, or whether performance is stagnating or even declining.

4. Return to play

It is easy to check whether a player is ready to make his comeback after an injury by comparing the data from the initial profile. This makes it simple to judge how far the athlete still is from his personal peak performance and which specific areas may need more training.

5. Scouting

The comparison of data does not only have to be done for two training sessions of the same athlete. Profiles from in-situ diagnostics can also be used in scouting to compare junior players with professionals. Here, the objective tracking data acts as a support for the subjective impressions of coaches.

The evaluation of the performance diagnostics with KINEXON could be carried out semi-annually or quarterly and clearly visualized in a dashboard. In combination with e.g. health checks, questionnaires, etc., a holistic diagnostic picture is thus created. In a nutshell: Diagnostics with KINEXON PERFORM LPS means little effort and comparable performance data in real conditions.
