Engineering and Sports- playing faster and for longer

 


Look at wimbleton this summer see how the speed of a ball is recorded using high speed video this is a great example of something an engineer can do.


 Sports engineering involves the design, development and testing of sports equipment. Engineers can improve the performance of people participating in sport by helping them to train more efficiently and in a safer way. Running shows are engineered to be light and support your feet. Sensor equipment is used to view the movements and speed of athletes such as tennis players, runners and swimmers as they train. They can then analyse their strength and weaknesses.
