What is Football Movement Profile (FMP)?
Football Movement Profile (FMP) developed by Catapult uses inertial sensor derived algorithms to detect Football specific movements and categorize them into multi directional (dynamic) and steady state (linear) categories as well as different intensities (low, medium, high).
Identification of these movements allows for better insights on mechanical work done by Athletes during an Activity. Thereby, allowing practitioners to make more informed decisions on load management both live and post Activity.
FMP movements can be categorized into the following Movement Categories:
FMP parameters can be captured both LIVE and POST Activity.
How to setup FMP?
The FootballMovementProfile module must be applied to your account. If you want to add the module please contact support for assistance.

Detecting and Viewing FMP Metrics in the OpenField Console
FMP data is available both LIVE and POST activity in the OpenField Console. To view FMP data for past Activities captured by Vector Devices, please reprocess/bake the Activity after activating Football Movement Profile for your account. For instructions on how to reprocess/bake historical data, please see our Baking Activities guide.
Graphing FMP Movements
Open the Activity with the OpenField console.
Navigate to the Active Players box and right click on the Player you want to graph FMP movements for. Select 'FMP Layer'.
Hover over each segment for a summary of each FMP 1 second movement categorization.
Viewing FMP Parameters in the OpenField Console
Create a new Dashboard if desired.
In any Dashboard, create a new Default Table. From the table widget's settings, select the Parameters Tab then select any FMP parameters from under the Football Movement Profile category. See Console Widgets for more information.
Fast Sync from the OpenField Console to send data to the Cloud for analysis.
Viewing FMP Metrics on OpenField Cloud
Detecting and analyzing FMP Metrics in the OpenField Cloud can be done Live and post Activity.
