Simi Motion

Gait analysis


Motion analysis of human, animal and mechanical devices in 2 & 3D.  Measure angles, accelerations, forces and distances using automatic tracking of as many points as you need.
Integrate motion capture with other devices such as forceplates & EMG.  Visualise results in tables, graphs, stick figure overlays and as sequences of images.  Automatically calculate and export a range of statistics from raw or filtered data.

How it Works

  • Capture video and analogue data direct to a PC or laptop
  • Select from a pre-defined set of points to track or define your own
  • Link each point to right part of the body once - and then track automatically
  • Display your data with stick figures, video, tables and graphs that can be exported
  • Analyse your data using Simi's comprehensive analysis and transformation options
