Complete pitching & hitting analysis

The Baseball module includes everything that you need to perform biomechanical pitching and hitting analysis, whether it is for research, education or as a business for paying clients.

We teamed up with partners such as B Young Physical Therapy to generate the output variables that pitchers and their coaches are looking for while maintaining scientific rigor in all calculations.

Calqulus cloud-based processing

Calqulus allows you to streamline the process of capturing and analyzing 3D motion data by offering a smooth workflow directly from recording to web reports.

The Analysis module

An Analysis module is a special QTM project created with Project Automation Framework. A module contains all you need to get from data collection to a finished report in an easy and streamlined workflow.

Each analysis module is configured with a patient/subject metadata structure, a set of trials, analyses pipelines and report templates.

Why use motion capture when analyzing a baseball pitch

Pitching is a complex movement that involves rotations in several planes, making it hard to impossible to accurately assess a pitcher’s movement with 2D systems such as video cameras.

In addition to the complexity of the movement, elite pitchers may reach hand and ball speeds well above 80 mph and shoulder internal rotation velocities above 5000 degrees/second, demanding fast capture rates and short exposure times.

Motion capture combines the views of multiple cameras to track the three-dimensional movement of markers that are placed on the athlete’s body or equipment. Qualisys cameras operate at up to 1100 Hz at full field of view so you can be sure that you don’t miss any subtle details of the athletes’ movement.

Web report

The Baseball module includes an interactive web report for increased accessibility and easy sharing. Reports can be viewed with all major web browsers and any device.

The report contains basic parameters, video and a 3D visualization of the movement as well as more in-depth results in charts and tables.

A demo report can be seen here.
