4. Project Narrative: (Must be tied into what educational benefits will be received by the students, faculty; what goals are going to be achieved etc.)
 

Poor physical fitness and health issues are increasing in our country. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in three adults in the United States suffers with obesity and other health issues, which cause disabilities and overuse injuries on the human body. As a result, the training of effective health and fitness professional is very critical to address these issues.

The undergraduate and master's degree programs in the Department of Exercise Science & Health Promotion in the College of Education has approximately 800 students per year, with about 400 at the junior/senior level and graduate students. Each of these students, as an undergraduate, must take Kinesiology, PET 4330C. This four credit course includes a video analysis project that each student must complete. In addition, many of the undergraduates take the Biomechanics course, which is an elective, that includes a more in-depth video analysis, The analysis may be of a particular sport movement, a disability, or other physical activity. The graduate students, who are in the strength and conditioning track, have a required Functional Biomechanics class, with an even more in-depth project. These videos, with the analysis, require students to work on simulated cases where they work on their emerging motion-analysis skills. Thanks to a previous technology-fee grant, the students have access to a Dartfish analysis program, which is a state-of-the-art analysis program for the student's projects in the Exercise Science & Health Promotion Department.

The cutting edge elements of the degree programs (undergraduate and graduate) in the Exercise Science and Health Promotion Department are the two performance laboratories located in Field House 11-A and GY 152 of the gym. These two labs have 14 computers with the Dartfish analysis program that students can use to analyze their captured video. The students may also record movement performance in both labs, sport settings, and rehabilitation centers, but, at this time, the department only has one camera for use. The student, after filming, can download the video into the laboratory computers for analysis. They may also use a 'one-month' free analysis program they can download to their laptop or home computer. However, if they do not have the camera for capturing the video for the analysis, this can create problems. Since we have 60 to 85 students per semester working on this project, we want to ensure they have access to HD cameras for their analysis, without any delays. With a total of four cameras, if this is funded, the students will have much more time for filming.

This funding request would purchase portable high definition video equipment that would serve two purposes: 1. Work with the existing equipment analysis program that the students have access to, so they may practice the basic skill analysis (which will allow for more sophisticated analysis and training), and 2. Video record sporting and disability movements in both labs to determine the essential dynamics that lead to effective corrective measures when the film is analyzed.

We are seeking funding for three high definition video camera and three tripod mounts, which will allow for the video recording and storage of the analysis sessions, by many more students than the one camera we currently have.
