Designed for any skeleton type
Horses have been recorded inside arenas and on treadmills, but this marks the first time that motion capture cameras have been used under actual race conditions.
The motion capture data is being used to create mathematical models designed to help create a better understanding of how much stress can safely be put on a race horse, and how long they need to heal.
This will lead to better training regimens for horses, which could lead to better performances and longer careers.
Motion capture is employed commonly in veterinary science as a teaching aid.
Through collection and measurement of data, rather than observation and experience, more accurate diagnoses of animal injuries can be made.
As every application is different, we work with our customers to help check and refine their skeleton labelling template files in Nexus to achieve the desired outcomes and track the required movements – even if that’s working with a non-anatomically correct template or subject.
We’ve helped our customers with all kinds of models – from the small to the large, and the fast to the slow.
We don’t stop working with you once you’ve created your template.
To compute valid kinematics or kinetics, you must either use a pre-defined biomechanical model (such as Vicon Plug-in Gait – just run the pipeline in Nexus) or create your own model using MATLAB or Python.
Our expert life sciences support team will help guide you and provide the tools and advice on scripting, so you can create your own models.
Nexus is our platform designed specifically for the needs of the life sciences community, at every level. Not only do we offer native CGM2 integration, but allow clinicians and surgeons to run the pipeline alongside other biomechanical models, to assess the variations and make a clinical decision on the appropriate model for each specific research project. As one of the key partners in driving forward the development of CGM2, Vicon systems are the most clinically validated available.
In Nexus 2.10, with hard sync, you can access the full sensor capability for highly accurate synchronization of inertial data with the precise tracking data from Vicon’s optical cameras. Within Nexus 2.10, Blue Trident will offer quaternions, allowing researchers to add inertial data on joint impacts and limb movement.
Vicon provides a range of useful tools, utilities and information for our customers that are all fully integrated with our Nexus software. Visit our downloads page to see what’s available:
Our cutting-edge camera, Vicon Vantage, will transform the way you think about motion capture. With its advanced technology, intelligent controls and intuitive design, it puts the power to capture in your hands.
Vero combines market-leading resolution and speed at an unrivalled price point. Like its bigger brother, Vantage, Vero has on-board sensors that monitor camera position and temperature to ensure optimal performance at all times.
Lock Lab and Lock Studio are Vicon’s control boxes for connecting, integrating and synchronizing third-party devices with your Vicon motion capture system – whether analog or digital.
Find all the accessories you need for your application here, ready to buy online: markers for affixing to the body (human or animal) and tape to attach them.
Support is a large part of the Vicon offering and it’s something we’re very proud of. Not only do new customers receive a one year warranty on their hardware, but all of our customers benefit from basic phone, email and web technical support for the life of their system.GET SUPPORT
