3D Kinematic Assessment

Eight high-speed video cameras simultaneously record the movement of the trunk and extremities as the child walks. These views are merged to construct a three-dimensional (3D) model that is then used to calculate joint motion in each of the three planes. The data can be represented in graphical form to show the dynamic range of motion during gait.
