High-precision, biomechanically-relevant motion capture.

Biomechanics Runner

OptiTrack offers a blend of performance and usability that produces high-precision, biomechanically-relevant motion capture data via workflows that are unprecedented in their simplicity.
OptiTrack has native support for force plates, EMGs, and analog signal display and acquisition enables ready access to analysis in Visual3D, The MotionMonitor, MATLAB, or other third party biomechanics packages.

OptiTrack Motive

Motive supports numerous biomechanics markersets, with a focus on scientific anatomically-valid options. Whether your analysis takes place in Visual3D, The MotionMonitor, MATLAB, or another third-party tool, these markersets provide a robust marker tracking and auto-labeller.

Kinematic labeling

Motive’s real-time labeling engine utilizes a clear understanding of a subject’s unique skeletal structure to deliver highly accurate labels, even during occlusive interactions between limbs or other subjects in the lab. When additional labeling is needed, industry-standard naming conventions offer biomechanists a simple, familiar labeling workflow.

Exceptional 3D precision and accuracy

OptiTrack Prime Cameras

Motive combines with OptiTrack's Prime Series cameras and Micron Series calibration tools to produce the most reliable 3D data on the market, capable of sub-20 µm accuracy in optimal conditions.

Wall-to-wall tracking

Gait Lab

OptiTrack's specially-designed lenses offer wide FOV and low distortion. Each lens is specifically fitted to the camera’s image sensor, for true edge-to-edge coverage that is ideal for tracking every inch of compact areas like gait labs.

Outdoor capture, out of the box

Featuring ultra-powerful strobes and custom-engineered band-pass filters, Prime Series cameras can track reflective markers outside, in full sunlight, with no need for special add-ons or hardware modifications.

Extensive native support for Visual3D & The MotionMonitor

Visual 3D Images

Motive focuses on what OptiTrack does best — providing a simple path to capturing the highest quality 3D data in the industry. For the most advanced biomechanics analysis and reporting on the market, we recommend Visual3D or The MotionMonitor—now with enhanced support from Motive.

V3D and TMM-friendly markersets

Motive’s biomechanics markersets use naming conventions that are compatible with pre-built V3D and TMM models, providing a simple pathway between labeling and analysis.

Enhanced C3D export

Combine tracking data, subject variables, device specs, force vector data, and analog device data into a single file—all following C3D formatting standards.

Real-time streaming

Stream live, labeled marker reconstruction data to native TMM, or to V3D via plugin to the Visual3DReal-time Server—ideal for real-time analysis, biofeedback, and verification.
