Sardar, B: Kinematic Variables of Forehand Drop Shot in Badm
Forehand Drop Shot in Badminton
Badminton is primarily a power sport in which athletes must accelerate and shift in multiple directions around the court. Players must smash the shuttlecock with a high velocity and immediately be prepared to return a volley. The role of biomechanics in attaining high performance cannot be overlooked, since it is the only science, which helps identify the faults of performing technique very precisely. High-speed module film for exactness has been used extensively to examine in details of the movements, which occur too fast for the human eye to detect. To investigate the relationship of selected linear and angular kinematic variables with the performance of smash (forehand) in badminton, Digital photography technique was used.The stick figures were preferred on transparency by using joint point method, and the various angular kinematics variables were obtaining it moment contact. Segmentation method was employed in order to assess the center of gravity of the body during time of moment contact with the shuttle. The performance of the selected photo was used as the criterion measure for the study.
