The analysis of human movement is of great interest for performance, injury prevention and optimal recovery from injury or trauma. Movement analysis is also a key component of the physiotherapy evaluation. The emphasis on evidence-based practice in physiotherapy stresses the need for standardised outcome measures when evaluating patients. Videography with its related technology has been used since its inception to examine various functional limitations resulting from impaired movements, as well as a means for visual feedback. With developments in technology, more cost-effective solutions are available for assessing human movement and two-dimensional (2D) imaging has become an easily accessible and cost-effective alternative to costly 3D systems. This lecture will explore the tactics and techniques used for recording, analysing, storing and retrieving video data in 2D slow-motion video analysis.


The purpose of this course is to discuss the various tactics and techniques used for recording, analysing, storing and retrieving video data in 2D slow-motion video analysis.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.


Availability - this course is online and can be completed on your own schedule.

Hours of Learning - No deadlines are applied to this course and it can be started and completed in your own time according to your personal schedule.
