… it is the order of time when in order to win efforts of athletes, scholars, engineers, inventors and other professionals are to be consolidated. The expediency of using the authors’ technology for vocational selection and guidance in all fields is to be stressed. The application of the Simulator in diagnostic and rehabilitation centres to examine the individual characteristics of the cerebrospinal nervous system and organism is beyond question. Possibly the technology will contribute to solving the gravest nation’s problem to be physical inactivity. When the technology is implemented the young people will be able to simulate and programme high-capacity motional tests to compete with each other. Maybe new spectacular kinds of sport to unite people of various age groups and capabilities based on the new technology will appear.


H.L. Drandrov, Head of Sport Disciplines Department of Chuvash State Pedagogical University Doctor of Pedagogical Sciences, Professor, Football Coach of the Higher Qualification Category

Training group tactical actions is based upon simulations of game situations during work-out sessions. The athletes are supposed to be fast and precise in recognizing the game situation referring it to the particular type and then they are to apply the adequate group tactical action. The Interactive Simulator developed by the staff of LEMA Company in close to real conditions allows to:

- simulate space and time structure of the game situations, including the location and relocation of the ball, defenders, attacking players within the football field; 

-assign defenders’ action algorithm to influence each game situation and its development;  

- act upon the game situation development by every attacking player (performing operations with a ball – handling and performing operations without a ball –opening for handling;

- coordinate attacking players’ actions between themselves in time and space;

- obtain information on the characteristics of tactical actions – precision and timeliness of ball handling and opening.

Taking into account the above said the benefits of the Interactive Simulator are to be emphasised for team sports, football including. I am certain that the Simulator will be of great interest for the coaches who train young football players and this will result in the considerable advancement of sports school and children and youth sports school of the Olympic reserve leavers.  


V.E. Gorsky, Candidate of Technical Sciences, Professor, General Director of Limited Liability Company LIFE IN HOCKEY

Modelled the Simulator actions in team situations create favourable conditions to step up unwinding individual tactical proficiency of the hockey players to be promptness and precision in taking tactical decisions to provide efficiency of group and team tactical actions.

The application of the Simulator for tactical training of hockey players of all qualification types and of all age groups is, in our opinion, a quite new approach to training hockey players.


A.S. Gagiev, First Deputy Minister of Sport and Tourism of the Republic of Belarus

…the proposed development of the Interactive Simulator is a promising area for developing the technologies of athletes’ coaching. The Simulator is of great use for conducting scientific researches to develop corresponding methods of coaching in team sports.

Owing to close scientific and sport ties between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus we suggest joint implementing the project by the leading research institutions of the two states…


M.E. Prudnikova, Candidate of Psychological Sciences, Professor Russian Academy of Natural Science, Honored Science and Education Worker

While applying knowledge of psychology of colour and light influence on the human being, the authors integrally make use of the multimedia. The target combination of interactive dynamically lit units and sound for coaching is a new field in sport science to be paid special attention to.

The value of the given technology in terms of scientific and practical capacity going beyond athletes’ training and testing should be noted. Such interactive simulators would fit well pre-school institutions, schools, higher educational institutions, specialised schools and rehabilitation centres.

The rapid growth of competition and sportsmanship in sport boosts the constant search for new technologies improving the training system. The developed by LEMA specialists multipurpose interactive simulator gives an opportunity to develop effectively the particular athletes’ qualities for a variety of game and situational sports.

The Simulator can be used for training certain techniques, for development and improvement of complex technical and tactical actions, enhancing dynamic capacity and coordination abilities of athletes. This system can be applied for a training process and as methodological training support for national teams: for standard, complex and ongoing examinations, assessment of competitive activity.


E.P. Popechitelev, the RF Honored Science Worker, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor of Biotechnical Systems Department, St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University

Designed by the LEMA specialists multi-purpose interactive simulator is a tool for effective development of specialized athletes’ skills for any game and situational kinds of sports and more.

The Simulator supports with the highest possible approximation to reality to model the space and time structure of the situations that can occur to a person or a group of people, and to train their behavior in unpredictable for them conditions. At the same time, the Simulator can be widely applicable not only for training athletes.

The situations to be created using the Simulator can be interpreted as the game ones. One can assign the contents of each situation and the course of its development, the players’ behaviour algorithm, coordination of players’ interactions in time and space; obtain the immediate information on the characteristics of the players’ actions and condition while they are doing the skill exercise.

Using psychological knowledge of the influence of light, colour and sound on a human, the authors in a comprehensive way make use of a range of multimedia tools. In addition, the simulator provides visual and auditory communication between the parties, as well as the elements of the active biological feedback to control the actions and the condition of the person. This is a new promising area in sport science and training, which deserves special attention. The Simulator is both suitable for the training process (for example, for GTO standards) and as methodological support of the comprehensive, interval and current examination and physical fitness evaluation.

Furthermore, the possibilities of this Simulator and the technologies based on it are much broader and are of great scientific and practical prospects going beyond the boundaries of sport application, and not fully disclosed yet. It is suitable as a diagnostic and rehabilitation instrument in specialized centers, where the functional characteristics of the human body are study and trained.

Another promising application is for group testing when tactical actions training assignments are created in the simulated situation with the subsequent analysis of the tactical operations of the group of people. Perhaps the approaches inherent in the technology will be the key ones for solving one of the most serious problems of our time being physical inactivity. Many people will be given an opportunity to simulate and programme capacious motor tests, offering them to each other as creative competitions.
