Accuracy of a low-cost novel computer-vision dynamic movement assessment: potential limitations and future directions

Author: M. McGroarty, 2016 The aim of the study was to perform a preliminary validation of a low cost markerless motion capture system (CAPTURE) against an industry gold standard (Vicon). Measurements of knee valgus and flexion during the performance of a countermovement jump (CMJ) between CAPTURE and Vicon were compared. After correction algorithms were applied …

The measurement of in vivo join angles during a squat using a single camera markerless motion capture system as compared to a marker based system

Author: Schmitz, A., et al, 2015 Markerless motion capture may have the potential to make motion capture technology widely clinically practical. However, the ability of a single markerless camera system to quantify clinically relevant, lower extremity joint angles has not been studied in vivo. Therefore, the goal of this study was to compare in vivo …
