Sports science, for example, is one area where motion capture is being used to enhance physical performance and allow for greater analysis of movement. By recording and comparing successful performance to the average, an instructor can identify areas for improvement that will lead to better results. For the first time, this technology allows the athlete to retrospectively analyze subtle areas of their performance.
Ultra-high accuracy tracking tools are now commonplace in medical simulation from echocardiography through to keyhole surgery. This enables students to get access to a realistic training program without the danger of practicing on patients or having to be limited to theoretical learning processes.
Physiotherapy patients, or those with sporting injuries, can benefit from motion capture technology in highlighting problems with their movement. By being able to accurately measure minor alterations (in all axis of movement) across a number of sessions gives professionals a way to quantify improvement or degradation.
From gait labs to stadiums
OptiTrack cameras provide the most expansive coverage in optical tracking, enabling high-precision tracking in almost any configuration.
OptiTrack Prime 17W
Wide angle coverage for large volumes in smaller spaces.
With an amazing 70° field of view, spread across 1.7 MP of resolution, the Prime 17W offers expansive camera coverage. Combined with 360 FPS capture rate, it’s a truly multi-talented camera.
Validated Biomechanics Markersets
Motive supports numerous biomechanics markersets, with a focus on scientific and anatomically-valid options. Whether your analysis takes place in Visual3D, The MotionMonitor, MATLAB, or another third-party tool, these markersets provide a robust marker tracking and auto-labeller.
Prefer a more detailed markerset for multi-segment studies? Motive’s standard markersets can be augmented with additional markers for capturing more verbose datasets.
