'''iPi Biomech Add-on''' is a convenient tool for in-depth biomechanical analysis of human motions. It includes visualization of tracking data and its export to various formats. It can be used for:
 +
* Export of point cloud from multiple Kinect sensors for animation or research
 +
* Gait analysis and rehabilitation
 +
* Sports motion analysis
 +
* Research in 3D human kinematics
 +
Markerless tracking technology does not require clumsy suits, and work in real-life environments like regular office.
