Human Performance Lab

Human performance labs use cameras to capture motion to analyse body movement such as kinetics, pressure, posture, energy expenditure, gait analysis and even body composition. 

Gait analysis

Taking these types of measurements can help to understand movements of the human body which can be used to improve patient care. The outputs can also be used for the rapid prototyping of novel devices e.g. orthopedic inserts designed to individual patient’s requirements.

Gait skeleton

Human performance labs can also be used to animate digital character models. Precise measurements allow more lifelike motion, complex movements and longer movement sequences to be animated. See further detail on specialist facilities for animation here.
