Badminton Single Sports Motion Analysis [Academic Project]

3 min readApr 28, 2022


Badminton is a national sport in several Asian countries, a sport that originated in China and was found in England. Badminton is a game using a racket that two to four people playwith a different temporal structure defined by the high-intensity movement of short duration. Grip, hitting techniques such as serve, lob, smash, drop shop, drive, and footwork are some of the techniques in badminton that must be mastered by players (Phomsoupha and Laffaye, 2015).

Data movement analysis :

Data collection documentation :


Athletes serve long distances with a right arm angle of 123 degrees and a left arm of 600, the angle of the shuttlecock position with the body is 70.70 cm and the foot position is 12.63 cm.


When doing a smash, the athlete forms a prefixed leg angle of 98 degrees, the left arm angle is 36 degrees and the right foot when jumping is 151 degrees and the left foot is 129 degrees.

The athlete has an arm angle of 119 degrees, when jumping the right foot angle is 119 degrees and the left foot is 129 degrees, and the second picture has the highest jump of 44.27 cm.

The athlete performs a backhand movement with an elbow angle of 156 degrees and a distance between the legs of 14.48 cm.

In Biomechanics, movement patterns/skills are assessed based on knowledge of human anatomy and mechanics. In sports biomechanics, Analytical methods used in biomechanics vary, from those requiring expensive and complex equipment, to techniques utilizing little more than a keen eye and understanding of the mechanics of movement. At every level of movement analysis, there is a need for interaction between the trainer and the bio-mechanics, if maximum performance is to be achieved. An objective or quantitative evaluation of movement requires that permanent records be collected for a number of trials, so that each can be viewed and analyzed.

Hence the need to apply every available means to use methods and materials for better skill and movement analysis to improve performance. The goal of sports biomechanics is to provide coaches and athletes with information about sports skill techniques that will help them to achieve the highest levels of athletic performance. Therefore sports clubs, institutes, academies, managers, athletes and other concerned bodies working on developing sports and improving the performance of their coaching staff/offices there should be a need for bio mechanists.
