Large equipment

Short Description

The motion capture system contains of 11 cameras of the type Oqus and 8 cameras of the type Miqus (Qualisys, Göteborg, Schweden).
The system enables the simultaneous measurement and analysis of kinemtic data via marker, which are placed on the participant or the object of interest.
Mostly simulataneous capturing of force plate and/or electromyographic data.
A measurement computer is assigned to this systems.
The cameras of type Oqus can be used indoor and outdoor, the cameras of type Miqus only indoor.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

Data collection and data analysis regarding movement and loading structures (kinematics) via Qualisys, mostly in connection with kinetic und electromyografic data collection and analysis.
This is the basis of biomechanical modelling.
