The MotionMonitor® Features

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

The MotionMonitor® is a turn-key 3-D motion capture system designed to synchronously collect data from kinematic trackers, EMG, force plates, video, event markers and other analog devices. Data generated from a rich collection of analytical tools are immediately available for playback with graphical displays of all data outputs. Stunning 3-D computer-rendered animations of the subject can be viewed as a skeleton, stick figure, or humanoid. Real-time measurement of the human body's movement, muscle recruitment and external forces acting on the body is achieved using the broadest range of hardware available in the market.


The MotionMonitor® C3D Model BuilderC3D DataAnalyze Data collected from any hardware using The MotionMonitor® C3D Model Builder:

  • Import data and construct models in 4 simple steps
  • Use established marker sets, rigid bodies or combinations of both
  • Define virtual joint centers, landmarks & segment coordinate systems
