NO RATINGS
On Fox Sports Science a few years ago, MEMS were used to measure the impact of two colliding Sumo wrestlers. They also used MEMS to study Jerry Rice's football catching techniques. See below.

Yes, this is an interesting use of MEMS. I remember a few years ago, a company started up that captured the golf swings and baseball swings of stars and sold a system that tracked the user's swings against those of the stars. Cools application for MEMS. Not sure how successful that company was, but it was a clever idea.

Those are some pretty cool examples of MEMS in action on the sports field. Given a segment (and hopefully a growing one) of the population's focus on fitness and competitive sports, seems like a natural application and one that can really give athletes far more control over their training regimens.
