The MotionMonitor Features

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

The MotionMonitor is a turn-key 3D motion capture system designed to synchronously collect data from the broadest range of hardware used in the life sciences. Real-time measurement of the human body's movement, brain activity, eye movement, muscle recruitment, and external forces acting on the body are achieved using optical trackers from Vicon, Qualisys, Motion Analysis, NDI Certus, Ascension & Polhemus; EEG systems from Biosemi, AntNeuro & , EMG, force plates, hand transducers, EEG, 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 and stunning 3D computer-rendered animations of the subject.

The MotionMonitor is a real-time biomechanics software solution with support for over 14 different kinematic tracking technologies. These include passive optical cameras, active optical cameras, electromagnetic trackers and inertial sensors so that we can offer you the technology that meets your unique needs. Additionally, we can integrate and include peripheral systems such as force plates, EMG, EEG, Digital Video, Haptics and Virtual Reality displays to offer a turn-key solution.

 Include and Integrate


Reduce your operating costs and focus on your research, versus writing, modifying, debugging and maintaining code...

The MotionMonitor facilitates your setup, model definition, data collection, data analysis, protocol setup and export processes with no scripting or programming efforts. Co-locate force plates, load cells, haptic devices and Virtual Reality displays to a common reference coordinate system for meaningful data. Select from peer-reviewed research methods to define joint centers and anatomical local coordinate axes. View an immediate playback of each trial to ensure accurate collection of data. Use drop-down menus to select raw or processed kinematic and kinetic data, as input to user-defined computations and graphical displays. Perform data reduction and export data in ACSII or C3D format for use in other analytical software.

  Reduce operational costs
