3-D Animation & Motion Capture Technology In Medicine
3-D Animation & Motion Capture Technology Show Promise for Uses in Rehabilitation
“In the film and video game industry, motion capture technology is used to convert people’s movements into computer animations -With 3D animation, we can measure the joint angle, speed and smoothness of the arm motion, as well as which compensating motion patterns the stroke patient is using. This give us a measurement for the motion that we can compare with an optimal arm motion in a healthy person…The 3D animations have provided a completely new level of detail in terms of mobility in stroke patients — knowledge that can help patients achieve more effective rehabilitation…”
