3-D motion capture analysis for biomechanical assessments
SwRI has entered a new area of research: optimizing human physical performance. The military special forces and professional sports communities are interested in 3-D motion capture analysis for biomechanical assessments. However, current practices and technologies do not meet cost and accuracy demands. The SwRI team is combining expertise in biomechanics, image processing, neural networks, sensor fusion, and systems engineering to explore a new 3-D motion capture system that aligns with the needs of the human performance community.
