American Sports Medicine Institute and Motus Offer Advance Biomechanical Analysis

September 24, 2012


In today's sports world, professional athletes are looking to gain a competitive edge over their opponents. That is why biomechanics technology and performance analysis for athletes have become a popular choice as it enhance athletic performance and prevents injury. 

To educate baseball pitchers, coaches, and trainers about performance and injury prevention perspective, Motus Global, a human performance technology firm, and the American Sports Medicine Institute, the clinical biomechanics research institute, have formed a strategic partnership.

 This main goal of this alliance is to help users prevent injury and provide feedback on the athlete’s performance.

In a statement, Keith Robinson, COO & co-founder of Motus, said, “ASMI and the relationship we are developing is a perfect example of how having a great partner will allow us to offer a world class product to our baseball users. Doctors Glenn Fleisig and James Andrews have been pioneers in the biomechanics community and we are excited to help them continue to innovate.”

Under this partnership, lots of research and data compiled by ASMI will be merged with software tools being developed by Motus.

ASMI and Motus have conducted biomechanical analyses for the Baltimore Orioles during their spring training camp. The partnership between both organizations has become stronger when ASMI veteran Dave Fortenbaugh, PhD., joined Motus as their EVP of Biomechanics, Research and Development.

ASMI executive director Lanier Johnson stated, “We have been impressed with Motus’ ability to collect motion data outside of the laboratory setting, giving us the ability to perform biomechanical studies on athletes in game type situations. This provides us even greater insight into athletic performance and furthers our important mission of understanding, prevention and treatment of sports related injuries through research and education.”
