Optical motion analysis is carried out both in cases of rehabilitation of patients after injuries, surgical interventions and neurological diseases, and during investigation and correction of athletes motion technics. An important role of the analysis is revealed both in the diagnosis of health disorders and in the control of the treatment.

Run analysis

A run analysis is made at our institute using an optical system that can capture any movement with high accuracy. We support the comprehensive approach to running therefore when analyzing we consider the functioning of the whole organism. After a biomechanical analysis a visual model turns into a graphic report with a number of key parameters for an ideal running technique such as rotation of the hips, knee angle, ankle flexion and contact with the ground. The report also includes a training program to strengthen certain muscles and the posture that will help improve the running technique.
Motion Capture Technology is ideal for a wide range of sports applications in research, rehabilitation, physical education and practice. Physical limitations and motion optimization are of great interest for athletes, trainers, researchers and physicians. Motion capture helps us learn more about mechanisms and prevention of traumas. It can also be used to improve the athlete technique to achieve better results in different sports. It is an accurate and reliable technology providing high accuracy real-time optical motion capture and further digital processing in 3D-modeling and animation programs. It is particularly efficient for research in biomechanics, clinical and experimental medicine, biology where information about movements of a person needs to be registered and digitalized to create virtual reality systems. Flexibly configurable according to the user tasks, the system produced by Qualisys AB (Sweden) contains a set of high-speed specialized cameras, facilities for fixed and mobile positioning of cameras, marker and calibration systems as well as powerful specialized software. The unique flexibility and portability of the system make it possible to install the equipment easily and transport it to any sports venue. Fully unbiased, quantitative data can be received to calculate joint angles, acceleration, moments, force, flexibility, deformations, body position, balance and other parameters.
PROTOCOL DESCRIPTION:
Using self-adhesive tape, spherical reflective markers are fixed in some anatomic fixed points on the patient’s skin according to the relevant protocols. Infrared cameras record the movement of the markers in space: as a result, three-dimensional reconstruction of the movement of every segment of the body is recorded. The received data is processed by special software and a report is made. The report is analyzed thoroughly by qualified specialists, a medical opinion is given; a diagnosis is made and adequate medical and pedagogic recommendations are given.

Jump analysis

Jumping technique is analyzed with the Qualisys optical system. Several types of jumping are considered: running jump, sideways jump, backward jump, standing jump, jump from a platform with landing to a lower level, jump over a bar. Force vectors arising at the moment of jumping off are analyzed; therefore, there is a possibility to evaluate the head start and force characteristics of muscles participating in the jump. High accuracy of motion capture makes it possible to determine the rise of the centre of gravity of the athlete and the physical height over the point of jumping off. When analyzing we consider the functioning of the whole organism and a visual model turns into a graphic report with a number of key parameters for an ideal jumping technique such as rotation of the hips, participation of the pectoral arch, knee angle, ankle flexion and contact with the ground that will help improve the jumping technique and make the landing safe. The system produced by Qualisys AB (Sweden)is flexibly configurable according to the user tasks and contains a set of high-speed specialized cameras, facilities for fixed and mobile positioning of cameras, marker and calibration systems as well as powerful specialized software.

Gait analysis

A digital optical motion analysis helps detect changes in the posture and movements in an unbiased, accurate and non-invasive form. The objective is to assess the ability to move in space, abnormalities and the need to correct or use auxiliary facilities. A gait analysis consists in collecting kinematic, dynamic and electromyographic parameters. This service is created for patients suffering from neurologic (hemiplegia, infantile cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries) and orthopedic diseases (arthritis, trauma consequences, surgeries, patients with an amputated lower extremity and disabled persons with prostheses). In particular, a gait analysis helps:

  • determine the level of functional restriction and loss of working capacity as a result of a disease, applied compensation, pathogenic mechanisms caused by this change and their development with the growth and/or aging of a person;
  • participate in the planning of treatment promoting the development of an adequate personal rehabilitation program which will be able to determine the clinical state of a patient before, during and after the program objectively and with measurable indicators;
  • in sports, receive a quantitative analysis of athletic motion to improve sports results and prevent injuries through studying preventive mechanisms of motor activity management that underlie sports movements;
  • for injured athletes, optimize the rehabilitation program and assure functional recovery before returning to sports activity;
  • assess the ergonomics of sports equipment and devices, ortheses and prostheses.

A comprehensive gait analysis can help a physician select, before the treatment, the most suitable therapy: orthopedic surgeries, botulinum toxin injections, use of ortheses or prostheses, intrathecal therapy, etc. A comparative analysis of data before and after treatment makes it possible to evaluate the results of corrective therapy, improvement.

Duration of a session depends on the type of analyzed motion and number of passive markers required by the analysis protocol. For example, the evaluation of gait kinematics can last 60 minutes.
