Biomechanics using Visual3D

Visual3D is tightly integrated with the automation framework in QTM. It provides an extensive biomechanical toolbox and is used in almost all of our analysis modules.

Automatic Identification of Markers (AIM)

Easily identify markers regardless of marker set. Just define your model, feed it with sample motion data and you are ready to go.

Why use motion capture?

By only looking at the subject from the front, back or side, you won’t capture all dimensions of the movements, and since rotations are not properly recorded you miss out on a lot of information.

Qualisys provides advanced optical motion capture systems for gathering accurate, three-dimensional movement data. The system consists of a number of Qualisys motion capture cameras, typically around 8 to 12 cameras depending on the size and design of the lab. Measurements are typically made at 300 fps with sub-millimetre accuracy.

Accurate tracking – treadmill-based and overground

No matter if you study running on treadmills or overground – Qualisys offers the right choice of camera to cover any size of volume. All major instrumented treadmills can be easily integrated into the Qualisys Track Manager software.

You can even escape the lab and move the analysis outdoors with our outdoor capable cameras.

Analysis Module

Qualisys Running analysis comes with an advanced processing pipeline that performs full-body biomechanical analysis of the captured motion data.

With feedback stemming from the analysis, you can isolate problem areas and pick up small nuances. Parameters such as pelvis height, knee angles, elbow and wrist path and more are calculated. In total, over 15 key parameters are calculated and presented in the final report.

Web report

The Running 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.
