What Athletic Trainers and Medical Practitioners Are Saying About Spark Motion
Nick Winkelman - Director of Education for EXOS formerly Athletes' Performance
Spark Motion has become instrumental to the coaching process at EXOS. Whether we are providing immediate feedback on the field, or delayed feedback in the classroom setting, the Spark Motion system has become a staple in our program. Spark Motion has improved on many of the design and experience features traditional to video analysis software. They have created an intuitive design, with the right amount of analytical features, and a great user experience. The ability to quickly look-up teams or athletes, and have all data stored in the cloud makes Spark Motion a sustainable tool. In the past, we didn’t use video analysis as much because we had to record video, download and edit, and then broadcast back to the athlete. Now with a few clicks, we can show the athlete their performance from multiple trials, across different time points, all in a matter of moments. Moreover, our athletes like their user experience and the speed with which they can receive feedback on their performance. In fact, we have had athletes personally purchase Spark Motion so that they can continue to learn once they are back with their team. With Spark Motions focus on world-class design, experience, and function, the team at EXOS is confident that this system will continue to support the video analysis needs of generations of athletes.
Manuel Diaz - Head Coach Men's Tennis University of Georgia
" There are so many benefits from using Spark Motion. A tennis player cannot physically see his strokes. Many times, a player may believe that his stroke is mechanically correct, but once recorded and analyzed with Spark Motion’s features he comes to realize his "true stroke" might not be what he imagined. The instant feedback will allow for stroke production correction – on the spot. Spark Motion allows me to identify my player's flaws. I can then immediately communicate the needed changes more effectively. "
Kyle Tarp - M.Ed., CSCS Director of Basketball Performance University of Maryland Basketball
" I am extremely impressed with the Spark Motion software. The program allows us to quickly identify movement deficiencies and provide clear instant visual feedback. For us, it is an invaluable tool to assess, track and educate our athletes. SparkPro is amazingly user-friendly considering its sophistication and versatility. Spark Motion sets a new standard for motion capture technology. "
Lenny Parracino - CMT, FAFS Faculty of the Gray Institute

We can now reveal movement inefficiencies, immobilties, and improper kinetic timing. This leads us to better programming."

Spark Motion is an indispensable coaching tool. It is handy and easy to use. The immediate feedback I can provide the athlete is second to none.
