A complete 3D running analysis and biomechanical profile in less than a minute without markers.

Running is basically the result of muscular forces acting on the body segments to produce forward motion. When these forces act in the optimal way, they generate an efficient running stride with balanced distribution of loads on the joints. When they don’t, the stride becomes uneasy and the injury risk increases.

Truly meaningful running gait assessment needs to involve the whole body and the forces acting on it. This is precisely what MotionMetrix does. Using depth cameras allows quality motion data to be obtained without body markers, making motion capture easier and faster than ever.

MotionMetrix’s 3D Running Gait system covers all essential aspects of running mechanics and features:

  • running economy based on mechanical work with elastic energy exchange

  • temporal and spatial stride parameters, and force

  • gait kinematics and joint loading for injury assessment

  • elite and normative data from over 600 runners

  • before-after overlay comparison

  • data chart generation for over 60 parameters as function of speed

  • comprehensive PDF report and video file for results sharing

3D Clinical Gait

Clinical Gait analysis refers to the systematic study of human walking to distinguish normal function from pathological condition. MotionMetrix’s 3D Clinical Gait system provides a standard set of gait parameters in which most pathological conditions are reflected. Clinicians can therefore use it to efficiently screen for a variety of conditions and to follow up on corrective measures. Moreover, the Clinical Gait system has many more features that take advantage of the full 3D capabilities which allow for gait assessments previously only possible in advanced medical laboratories.


  • All relevant gait parameters from the standard work “Gait Analysis: Normal and Pathological Function” by Jacquelin Perry

  • Center-of-mass trajectory in all three anatomical planes

  • Frontal plane hip and knee joint moments and angles

  • Sagittal plane hip and knee angles

  • Temporal and spatial stride variability parameters

  • Normative reference data

  • Before-after test overlay

The Clinical Gait analysis software can be used as standalone or in combination with the Running Gait software.  Contact us now to find out how to get started with quantitative 3D gait assessment in your clinic.
