Based on information gained from watching an athlete perform a skill, a patient walk down a ramp, or a student attempt a novel task, coaches, clinicians, and teachers make judgments and recommendations on a daily basis. To be effective, however, a qualitative analysis cannot be conducted haphazardly, but must be carefully planned and conducted by an analyst with knowledge of the biomechanics of the movement. Prerequisite Knowledge for a Qualitative Analysis There are two main sources of information for the analyst diagnosing a motor skill.

When a springboard diver executes a somersault in midair, the entire body is again rotating, this time around an imaginary axis of rotation that moves along with the body. Almost all volitional human movement involves rotation of a body segment around an imaginary axis of rotation that passes through the center of the joint to which the segment attaches. When angular motion or rotation occurs, portions of the body in motion are constantly moving relative to other portions of the body.
