Prof. Dr. Hermann Schwameder, President of the XXIV. International Symposium of Biomechanics in Sports, and his colleagues succeeded to organise a wonderful conference with a great social program and an incomparable atmosphere.
The scientific program offered high-level information and in the evenings, the participants could relax and enjoy the Austrian hospitality and culture.


CONTEMPLAS presented for the first time the new version 2.0 of the motion analysis software TEMPLO.
In addition to the already existing pre-defined analysis patterns for gait analysis, customised video capture and analysis patterns can now be generated. Like this, individual training sequences can be displayed by video feedback or by a test series. All participants estimated this feature to be a very positive and flexible improvement of the software.

The numerous contacts during the software presentation showed clearly the great gain and the manifold application fields of the new version of the video analysis software. Furthermore, the participants of the conference could see a live presentation of the mobile high-speed solution.

CONTEMPLAS supports "Hans Gros New Investigator Award"
