3D technology

3D camera

Our gait laboratory is equipped with 16 Oqus 3D cameras which are manufactured by Qualisys.

These cameras are able to track, in three dimensions, the motion of a large number of reflective markers which are attached to your legs, pelvis and spine as you run.

By using specially developed software we are able to convert the motions of these tiny markers into a full 3D representation of your running biomechanics.

analysing running gait

Our 3D running gait technology is very different to the simple 2-dimensional video-based approach which is available in some running shops.

With that approach it is not possible to understand the complex 3D coordination of the different body segments and it can therefore be difficult to pick up subtle differences in movement which may be causing or contributing to an injury or reducing or contributing to a reduction in running efficiency.
