Abstract
Many smart phones and tablets possess high-speed cameras. An increasing number of human movement professionals (e.g. personal trainers, athletics coaches, strength and conditioning coaches and physiotherapists) are beginning to use human movement analysis apps with their smart phones/tablets to quantitatively assess their clients' performance and injury risk. however, an understanding of the validity and reliability of those tools is required. this narrative review seeks to list some relevant human movement apps; summaries the validity and reliability of selected apps and to provide recommendations for their use in education and practice.
