Understand Athletic Performance

Our solution empowers coaches to not only measure athletes' performance but to understand why they were fast or slow and adapt training accordingly.

A glimpse of our cross-country skiing performance analysis

Screenshot of a part of the cross-country skiing performance analysis

This screenshot provides a glimpse of what is possible for cross-country skiing performance analysis. Our system automatically detects each skiing cycle (e.g., pole plant). The location of the start of each cycle is shown as the dots. When athletes ski at high frequency, the dots in the satellite image are very close together. Further, the system computes the cycle duration, average speed and the distance covered during each cycle, shown in the different graphs below the satellite images. Unique to our system is the sub-technique identification for each cycle. This is shown in the different coloring of the dots. And, finally, we always want to compare different laps, from the same athlete or from different athletes. These are the different lines in each graph and the three different satellite overlays. Continuous split times allow to pinpoint where exactly how much time is gained or lost.

The above screenshot provides a good summary of what our webapp can automatically compute for cross-country skiing performance analysis: lap detection, cycle detection and corresponding cycle parameters, sub-technique identification, continuous split times.

With our flagship Naos GNSS-IMU sensor it is even possible to obtain all this information in quasi real-time. Multiple users can simultaneously access the data from anywhere, opening up completely new ways of training analysis and competition preparation.

During the last winter Olympic games, our cross-country skiing customers won 10 Olympic medals!

Currently, the following sports, in alphabetical order, are officially supported: Alpine Ski Racing, Biathlon, Cross-Country Skiing, Show Jumping (Equestrian), Ski- and Snowboard-Cross, Ski Jumping, Track and Field, Trail Running.

How does it work?

Four simple steps to objective sports performance data

  1. Switch the sensor on
  2. Give it to the athlete
  3. Train. Record videos if you want
  4. Get instant performance feedback
Picture of providing performance feedback to athletes

Yes, it really is that simple!  Multiple years of the World's leading research and practical experience with the best teams are distilled into our products. Data processing is automatized and our sport-specific visualizations allow everyone to immediately understand performance. No data or sports scientist is needed. Get instant feedback with the Naos sensor, during training. For offline / after-training analysis it only takes 10 minutes of your time to completely analyze an athlete.

Why Archinisis?

All athletes, all the time

Never miss any motion of your athlete, even if he is not in view. Our smart analysis algorithms and data visualizations let you discover critical sections within seconds. Focus your attention on these moments instead of shifting for hours manually through all data and videos. There is no detail we cannot see.

Optimize your coaching

Our quasi-instantaneous feedback allows you to easily test new exercises and training techniques. See the influence on performance immediately and track the training progress over time.

Base your decisions on hard facts

We provide relevant sport-specific parameters. Don't get lost in dozens of parameters and keep your focus on the few parameters and measures that are really relevant for progressing with your athletes. We carefully selected the parameters based on scientific literature and numerous exchanges and tests with the world's best coaches.

Explain performance

With our data and video overlays we help you understand and explain performance. Is your athlete fast because of a good technique or only because he has exceptional strength?

Improve everyone's consciousness

Athletes want to understand how they move and perform. Our performance data helps to increase and calibrate the body awareness of each athlete. He better understands and stays motivated.

Our Services

You are busy and need to concentrate 100% on training and coaching. We are here to support you and do the tracking and performance analysis for you!

Measurements and Analyses

We join your team for selected training days or even for entire training camps. You don't need to own our technology for this. We take all required hardware with us! We will analyse the performance of your athletes on-site so that you can provide valuable feedback on the same day. Learn more
