OptiTrack for Movement Sciences

OptiTrack offers a blend of performance and usability that produces high-precision,biomechanically-relevant motion capture data via workflows that are unprecedented in their simplicity.

Native support for force plates, EMGs, and analog signal display and acquisition enables ready access to analysis in Visual3D, The MotionMonitor, MATLAB, or other third party biomechanics packages.

Validated biomechanics markersets

Motive supports numerous biomechanics markersets, with a focus on scientific and anatomically-valid options. Whether your analysis takes place in Visual3D, The MotionMonitor, MATLAB, or another third-party tool, these markersets provide robust marker tracking with real-time labeling.

Prefer a more detailed markerset for multi-segment studies? Motive’s standard markersets can be augmented with additional markers for capturing more verbose datasets.

Kinematic labeling

Motive’s real-time labeling engine utilizes a clear understanding of a subject’s unique skeletal structure to deliver highly accurate labels, even during occlusive interactions between limbs or other subjects in the lab. When additional labeling is needed, industry-standard naming conventions offer biomechanists a simple, familiar labeling workflow.

Wall-to-wall tracking

Our specially-designed lenses offer wide FOV and low distortion. Each lens is specifically fitted to the camera’s image sensor, for true edge-to-edge coverage that is ideal for tracking every inch of compact areas like gait labs.

outdoor motion tracking

Outdoor capture, out of the box

Featuring ultra-powerful strobes and custom-engineered band-pass filters, Prime Series cameras can track reflective markers outside, in full sunlight—with no need for special add-ons or hardware modifications.
