The MotionMonitor


The most advanced data acquisition and analysis system in the market offers precise measurement of human motion for diverse applications

The MotionMonitor is a turn-key 3-D motion capture system designed to synchronously collect data from kinematic trackers, EMG, force plates, hand transducers, EEG, digital video, event markers and other analog devices, virtual reality, and haptic devices. Data generated from a rich collection of analytical tools are immediately available for playback with graphical displays of all data outputs. Stunning 3-D computer-rendered animations of the subject can be viewed as a skeleton, stick figure, or humanoid. Real-time measurement of the human body’s movement, brain activity, eye movement, muscle recruitment, and external forces acting on the body is achieved using the broadest range of hardware available in the market.

The MotionMonitor is a totally integrated real-time data collection, analysis and 3D visualization system that will enhance your experience with OptiTrack cameras:

  • Utilize The MotionMonitor to build a biomechanical model using marker data from the OptiTrack cameras. Points used to define joint centers and local coordinate systems, can be identified using either marker positions from Motive: Body, or by digitizing landmarks in real-time using a stylus with both Motive: Tracker and Motive: Body.
  • Quality check marker tracking and model definitions in real-time using a live skeletal animation. The skeletal animation and graphical data can be viewed synchronously immediately after data collection.
  • Employ recommended protocols for subject setup, including the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) or other user-defined protocols for biomechanical setup and data analysis.
  • Synchronously collect the marker data along with any of The MotionMonitor supported hardware systems, including A/D data, force plate, EMG, eye-tracking, digital video and more.
  • Display raw or processed kinematic and kinetic data selected from intuitive drop-down menus or defined by the user with standard math notation within The MotionMonitor. Export all raw or processed data for further processing.
  • Conduct motor-control and stimulus response studies with audio and visual cues using either a 2-D display or 3-D Virtual Reality display with The MotionMonitor Biofeedback Module.


  • Biofeedback Used to generate visual, audio or tactile bio-feedback signals from any raw or processed data.
  • C3D Model Builder Provides users with the ability to convert data collected from any system into The MotionMonitor® data.
