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.

The user interface puts together 3D views, time graphs for all joints and real-time numerical data

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.

Getting instantaneous feedback on the cyclist’s entire body is possible with Cycling 3DMA

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.

Measure the bike too

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 relevent dimensions. Dynamic measurements can be done as well.
