Introduction
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.
With iPi Biomech Add-on you can:
- Get Linear and Angular Quantities for selected joints, including
- Linear coordinate, velocity, acceleration
- Euler angles, angular velocity and angular acceleration
- Quaternions and Rotation matrices
- Select convenient coordinate systems
- Linear: Absolute (relative to floor), Relative to parent joint, Relative to center of mass
- Angular: Absolute (relative to floor), Relative to parent joint
- Select Euler angles system
- Plot values of selected Quantities for selected bones
- Export joints motion data to file
- Tab-separated text format (for Excel)
- MATLAB format
- Export point clouds obtained from depth sensors to file
- MATLAB, PCD, XYZ formats convenient for research
- Krakatoa PRT, PLY, OBJ, Leika PTS formats convenient for animation
Note: iPi Biomech Add-on requires separate license key, which you need to activate in addition to iPi Mocap Studio license key. 30-days free trial provided.
