Full-body, 3D, real-time cycling analysis
Cycling 3DMA has been built upon a powerful 3D motion capture engine to provide a wealth of information to the fitter or specialist, and it does so with a simple workflow. The system is able to track the cyclist in real time, displaying actual 3D data at high frequencies. Its main features are:
- Real-time 3D reconstruction of the rider’s full-body motion.
- Bike measurement utility.
- Automated reports.
- Statistics and graphs on the go.
- Record HD video synchronized with the 3D data.
- Synchronize the software with surface EMG.
- No cables, no batteries on the rider.
- In barely five minutes the fitter or trainer can get real-time data on the rider’s motion: both sides at the same time. Its user interface has been engineered to be straightforward. Ah, and you can measure the bike as well.
Real-time optical motion capture used to be pricey and exclusive, but is now available to anyone. The information obtained is truly 3D and therefore 100% representative of the movement of the cyclist (as opposed to video-based systems, which are limited to a 2D plane and therefore lose information). No need to manually click points after capture. The data is collected and processed instantly by the software.
A Cycling 3DMA system includes a set of high-speed, infrared motion capture cameras. These can be installed on the wall or hung from the ceiling if the installation is permanent; or else be mounted on tripods for a temporary biomechanics lab.
Bike measurement: Road, TT/Aero, MTB…
Taking measurements of the bike is a simple task for Cycling 3DMA. Just place a few markers on certain points and the system will take a ‘3D snapshot’ and will instantly compute the most relevant dimensions. Dynamic measurements can be done as well.
