Motion analyst joins our staff.

Andy Shaw will be supporting our motion analysis and sports research areas;

”I studied sports and exercise science with psychology. My research focussed on vision and the kinematics of human prehension. I then moved into commercial sales, but managed to keep my sporting links. Joining Tracksys is a great opportunity for me to combine my research background with my passion for sales and customer service. If you work in sports science, coaching, physiotherapy or ergonomics I look forward to talking to you in due course.”
