-- Motorised Mobile Performance Analysis System --
The White Dolphin Technology Camera Buggy System used in Loughborough, Leeds, Australia and Cyprus is currently being installed in Liverpool, Llandudno, Madrid and Beijing. It the most sophisticated and powerful tool for videoing the dynamic underwater action of swimming. The extremely powerful buggy easily keeps pace with the swimmer, with the three cameras mounted on the underwater arm attached to the buggy allow side, front and rear views of the swimmer.
The buggy is very easy to set up. From storage the buggy takes less than a minute to become fully operational. The buggy is highly flexible. It is powerful enough to tow the swimmer through the water for over-speed training. It comes with a number of options including a backstroke mirror.
