Swing Analysis

High-speed video is a great tool for badminton analysis. Long time ago, there was a time when the badminton smash was at a speed of no more than 150 km/h.

Nowadays, modern badminton rackets (especially nano materials) make possible strokes at a speed of up to 493 km/h (world record). Badminton is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the fastest racket sport in the world.

At these speeds, it is very difficult for the coach to be able to analyze the entire badminton stroke, from the start of the racket movement, contact point to the finish of the stroke.

High-speed video is coming with 200 frames per second and it is able to see not only the points described above but also the angle at which the ball came to the racket, the rotation of the shoulders, the forearms and the wrist, etc. Besides the stroke, the correct movement to and from the ball is an integral part (one part of analysis).

Samples of our analyzes here.


The majority of conventional analyzes presented in today's media, whether websites, magazines, books or coaching manuals, are presented in the form of sequences showing the important body positions that are achieved by the player in the execution of the stroke.

Thanks to high-speed video, we work in our analyzes with at least 200 images, not 5 or 6 images. Compare 6 and 200 images. Because of this limitation, a conventional analysis gives you a very limited view. High-speed video allows us to see precisely the whole movement and we don't need guess what movements precede.

For example, when using a high-speed video, there is no need for debate about how the hand and wrist worked at the time between images in sequence (between the backswing and contact point). We see exactly all movements on the screen. Furthermore, we are regularly able to capture the moments which were random event before high-speed video - the ball in contact with a bat (only a few miliseconds).

With today’s high-speed video many more positions at many more stages during the execution of a stroke can be clearly captured and integrated into the resulting analysis. SwingAnalyst has access to far more information about the body movements involved in any stroke today.
