NDI Optotrak 3D Investigator system

The Optotrak is a research grade active marker based three-dimension motion capture system. The system is integrated with NDI’s TrueImpulse force platform. 

Resolution is 0.01 mm with an accuracy of 0.4mm. The current system has 30 Smart Markers for full body motion capture.

NDI TrueImpulse force platform
TrueImpulse™ force plates capture 3D ground reaction forces and are specifically designed for biomechanics research applications (e.g. balance, gait, sports performance analysis). The plate is strain gauge based with a collection frequency up to 5000 Hz. Data can be viewed real time and integrated with the Optotrak motion capture system.

ASL Mobile Eye XG eye tracker
The Mobile Eye-XG lightweight glasses consist of two digital high resolution cameras, one that records the scene image and the other, the participant's eye. These images are integrated into a single video recording representing the scene with a superimposed gaze cursor. The data can then be stored on an SDHC card on the participant's device and/or can be configured to send the real time data wirelessly to a remote work station.
