Detection of Baseball Throws and Bat Swings using S5

In baseball a large proportion of injuries occur in a non-contact incidents. Measuring and
controlling the exercise load will help reducing this type of injuries. Using computer algorithms
based on practice data recorded through OptimEye S5, Catapult is quantifying the count and
the load volume for activities such as throwing and bat-swinging. Testing the algorithm with
multiple teams gave an accuracy above 90% for proper throws and bat swings.
