These new technologies are becoming more affordable, which could help them be more widely used not only during games, but also for practices.

According to Bill Hannon, a senior technical ...

Dynamic Athletics patented injury prevention and athlete movement analysis sports technology

Dynamic Athletics Research Institute - DARI

Dynamic Athletics Research Institute – DARI

Dynamic Athletics Research Institute launched two years ago and is led by President, Patrick Moodie.
