Motion Capture is a precision tool used in bicycle fitting to give the fitter increased accuracy through higher frame rates (the eye is 10-12 fps, the camera is 120 fps) and the ability to view the body at a variety of speeds while in natural motion. Motion capture is an excellent coaching tool that provides the ability to show the client exactly what they are doing and how they are doing it.
Motion capture is of great value when combined with a thorough physical assessment. The physical assessment provides the framework from within which we can work and gives clues about where to look. The motion capture system provides the accuracy and detail to drill down into those areas.
High quality physical assessment + Motion Capture = Precision Fitting
