Performance and movement at A2 Lab

A2 Lab

What is the A2 Lab

The A2 Lab is a leading sports medicine facility dedicated to preventing and addressing ACL injuries and other sports-related issues.

By leveraging state-of-the-art technology and a multidisciplinary team, the lab provides advanced assessments, combine testing, and personalized programs for optimal athlete performance, injury reduction, and overall well-being.

The A2 Lab is staffed with a team of highly specialized experts in sports medicine and kinesiology, and motion-capture technology. They utilize the latest research and cutting-edge technologies, including AI-driven motion capture, to provide individualized assessments and comprehensive care tailored to each athlete’s specific needs.

Prioritize prevention for long-term athletic success.

Services Overview

Comprehensive care

Markerless motion capture technology has revolutionized our ability to analyze and understand human movement in sports medicine. It allows us to delve deeper into movement patterns, identify subtle biomechanical nuances, and provide precise guidance to optimize performance and prevent injuries.

Common injuries we prevent

Through our comprehensive approach, combining cutting-edge technology, sports medicine expertise, and injury prevention strategies, we strive to keep athletes protected from common injuries, allowing them to perform at their best and enjoy their chosen sports safely.

Overuse Injuries

Overuse injuries, such as stress fractures and tendonitis, are common among athletes. Our injury prevention programs focus on optimizing movement efficiency to minimize the risk of overuse injuries. We help athletes prevent the onset of overuse injuries.

Acute Traumatic Injuries

Traumatic sports injuries resulting from external forces, such as fractures and sprains, can occur in various sports. At the A2 Lab, we aim to minimize the extent of acute traumatic injuries by identifying and minimizing adjustable risk factors. By optimizing movement literacy/kinematics/efficiency, improving joint stability, and addressing anatomical considerations, we help athletes reduce the risk of acute traumatic injuries during sports activities such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear.

ACL Tears : A Significant Concern

ACL tears are a significant concern, particularly among youth athletes, as there has been an increase in their incidence over the years. The impact of an ACL tear on a young athlete can be devastating, as it can often sideline them from their sport for approximately 18 months. Countless missed practices, games, and cherished moments can take a toll on their mental health, leading to feelings of frustration, sadness, and isolation.

Even after undergoing ACL reconstruction, the unfortunate reality is that only about 67% of youth athletes will be able to return to their pre-injury level of play. Given these challenges, it becomes evident that the best approach is to prioritize prevention in order to mitigate the physical, psychological, and social consequences associated with ACL tears in youth athletes.

With advanced motion capture technology and expertise in kinesiology, we identify risk factors, assess movement quality, and develop tailored prevention strategies to reduce the likelihood of ACL tears and knee injuries.

Markerless motion capture technology

A2 performance and movement Lab’s markerless motion capture technology revolutionizes the assessment of human movement in sports medicine. By eliminating the need for physical markers attached to the body, this advanced system allows for more natural and unrestricted motion analysis.

With the integration of artificial intelligence, A2 Lab’s markerless motion capture technology provides precise and comprehensive measurements of athletes’ movement patterns, enabling accurate assessment, injury prevention, and performance optimization.
