  • Used by research institutions worldwide

Turn-KeySystem_1The MotionMonitor® Features

The most advanced data acquisition, analysis and visualization system in the market place provides precise measurement of human motion.

The MotionMonitor® is a turn-key 3-D motion capture system designed to synchronously collect data from kinematic trackers, EMG, force plates, video, event markers and other analog 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, muscle recruitment and external forces acting on the body is achieved using the broadest range of hardware available in the market.

C3D DataAnalyze Data collected from any hardware using The MotionMonitor® C3D Model Builder:

  • Import data and construct models in 4 simple steps
  • Use established marker sets, rigid bodies or combinations of both
  • Define virtual joint centers, landmarks & segment coordinate systems
  • Save model templates for faster setup
