Motion Analyses & Gait

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Our extensive 30-camera, high speed, 3D motion-capture system is used to scientifically evaluate the biomechanics of various sport motions at a rate of 500 images per second. A computer bone model of you is created to demonstrate your motion. We can collect sport motion indoor and outdoor to meet your needs!  These data are then processed and placed in a data repository of athletes to determine the most optimal biomechanics positioning for avoiding injury and improving human performance.

Featured In

Our work has been featured on ESPN, Discovery Channel, TV20 and FOX News, this laboratory is ready to test your motion. We are experienced in working with professionals, collegiate D1 athletes, sponsored athletes and Olympic hopefuls.

We look for symmetry of motion, joint angles, joint forces and rotation of body segments. Careful history taking, functional tests, high speed motion and real-time force measures set the standard in the field of biomechanics of sport motion.  Depending on the sport activity, the tests take approximately 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
