Optitrack for Movement Sciences
OptiTrack offers a blend of performance and usability that produces high-precision,biomechanically-relevant motion capture data via workflows that are unprecedented in their simplicity.
Native support for force plates, EMGs, and analog signal display and acquisition enables ready access to analysis in Visual3D, The MotionMonitor, MATLAB, or other third party biomechanics packages.
Validated biomechanics markersets
Motive supports numerous biomechanics markersets, with a focus on
scientific and anatomically-valid options. Whether your analysis takes
place in Visual3D, The MotionMonitor, MATLAB, or another third-party
tool, these markersets provide a robust marker tracking and auto-labeller.
Prefer a more detailed markerset for multi-segment studies? Motive’s standard markersets can be augmented with additional markers for capturing more verbose datasets.
OptiTrack cameras offer the best range in the industry, by huge margins. The long-range specialist Prime 41 is able to see a 16 mm passive marker from over 100’ away.
Discrete IR illumination
In addition to offering invisible illumination that is far gentler on subjects than visible red strobes, the Prime Series’ infrared LEDs offer faster discharge for quick exposures—perfect for capturing very fast motions.
Exceptional 3D precision and accuracy
Motive combines with our Prime Series cameras and Micron Series calibration tools to produce the most reliable 3D data on the market, capable of sub-20 µm accuracy in optimal conditions.
Motive’s real-time labeling engine utilizes
a clear understanding of a subject’s unique
skeletal structure to deliver highly accurate labels,
even during occlusive interactions between limbs or other
subjects in the lab. When additional labeling is needed,
industry-standard naming conventions
offer biomechanists a simple, familiar
Setup is easy
An OptiTrack pipeline is straightforward, offering several unique features that combine to reduce system setup time by up to 75%. Aim Assist, auto-masking, versatile hardware and the industry's longest range cameras make even large systems easy to setup with just one person.
One-click subject calibration
Calibrate new skeletons in an instant, with a single button click, for subject setup that is unprecedented in its speed and simplicity.

Outdoor capture, out of the box
Featuring ultra-powerful strobes and custom-engineered band-pass filters, Prime Series cameras can track reflective markers
outside, in full sunlight—with no need for special add-ons or hardware modifications.
