Improve athletes' performance through personalised motor analysis

The Volodalen Pros Application allows health and sports professionals to create Natural Motor Preference analysis reports for an athlete or patient. This report includes a profile, recommendations and a personalised program that can be shared with the patient to complete at home or in the practice.

The leader in Natural Motor Preference research

Volodalen is a training organisation that accompanies sports and health professionals as well as athletes in their care and performance through the individualization of movement. It is also a movement’s research laboratory that publishes numerous scientific publications on Natural Motor Preferences.

Each year, 200 professional athletes in 40 different disciplines are analysed, advised and followed by Volodalen. There are also 1’500 health professionals (physiotherapists, podiatrists, osteopaths, doctors) and sports professionals (trainers, physical trainers) who are continuously trained in Natural Motor Preferences by the organisation.

An application for health and sports professionals, to support the athletes

In order to best meet the training and follow-up needs of athletes and professionals, Volodalen develops its own tools: face-to-face training, online training, video capsules, books and specialised platforms.

After a first collaboration, Volodalen asked Apptitude to redesign their existing platform to make the experience more pleasant and the input of information more efficient. Volodalen’s initial wish was to complement their Natural Motor Preferences training with a platform that allows trained professionals to put their knowledge into practice with their patients.

A multi-disciplinary team for a custom experience

Our team of designers and developers worked closely with Volodalen’s researchers, engineers and trainers through various workshops. Together, we started from the existing platform and theoretical training materials. We then developed it into a user experience that can be applied with the athlete, without a screen interfering with the relationship and interactions between practitioners and their patients.

The functional and technical designs were carried out in parallel in order to define a relevant, realistic and efficient platform. The technical analysis allowed us to describe the business rules for reports generation and personalised recommendations. During this phase, we also conducted tests and further defined the most risky developments, like: switching from the platform to the mobile part if the practitioner wishes during a session, or generating a PDF analysis report in real time.
