Shoe testing with Oqus and New Balance
Qualisys has installed an 8-camera system combining both Oqus high-speed video cameras and regular marker-based Oqus cameras in the recently opened New Balance Sports Research Center in Lawrence, just outside of Boston. The research and development laboratory is managed by two former Umass-Amherst students, Trampas TenBroek and Pedro Rodrigues.
New Balance has since long cooperated with Dr. Joseph Hamill at the Umass department of Kinesiology to test products. In addition to the cameras, the laboratory is equipped with a pressure distribution measurement system from Novel.
