Top 10 reasons to use Vicon for Biomechanics and Sports Science

BECOME PART OF THE COMMUNITY
Vicon systems are in widespread use among biomechanical researchers world-wide. As the largest supplier of optical motion measurement systems to universities, hospitals and other leading research institutions, new members to our community will immediately benefit from a widespread and knowledgeable user group.
REAL-TIME BIOFEEDBACK
Many applications, such as stroke retraining and sports performance analysis require real-time feedback with minimum latency. Low latency is critical in these environments and helps to ascertain whether goals have been accomplished or to instantly see improvement in training techniques. Vicon systems allow you to obtain the 3D positions of the markers and integrate real-time data from force plates and EMG.
CAPTURE IN ANY ENVIRONMENT
Vicon systems work where you do – whether that's in a lab, on a sports field or on a ski jump. Winter or summer, indoors or outdoors, we have a Vicon system for you.
FLEXIBLE AND EASY TO USE
Working with Vicon equipment doesn't require an engineering degree.
For Vantage and Vero, a single cable provides everything your cameras need - power, data and synchronization.
Our biomechanics software, Nexus, has a friendly user interface and straightforward analysis process.
AUTOMATIC PROCESSING
Post capture analysis can be fully automated, from automatic marker labeling to automatic event detection.
Quality assure your data set before the subject starts the next trial with minimal manual intervention.
TOTAL MODELING
Vicon systems can be used with multiple modeling solutions to create clinical models via the Nexus software, including Matlab, Python, Visual3d, LabView, ProCalc and BodyBuilder.
INDEPENDENTLY PROVEN, INDUSTRY LEADING ACCURACY
Vicon's dedication to innovation ensures that our systems are the most accurate on the market. From 1.3-16 megapixels, every Vicon optical camera captures highly detailed grayscale information, which helps the system define the center of each marker to sub-millimeter accuracy. Beautiful, fully calibrated and synchronized HD video overlay is delivered in Nexus with Vicon's dynamic video calibration and the Active Wand. Every step of the way, quality, precision and repeatability is our focus.
QUALIFIED CUSTOMER SUPPORT
We believe our support engineers should have an intimate knowledge of the science, not just the technology. That's why our industry-leading customer support team consists of engineers with clinical science, biomechanics and Sports Science background, including several PhDs. You can rely on Vicon for expert support.
ANY BUDGET
With Vantage or Vero, a Vicon solution can be customized to both your needs and your budget. Our hardware and software can be matched to ensure you get the results you need at the price you want.
SOFTWARE FOR THE COMMUNITY
Vicon has developed a complete suite of software for our sports science and biomechanics community. Capture your data in Nexus, and create a custom biomechanical model with ProCalc.
Vicon gives you the ability to write your own tools using our SDKs. Streaming real-time data into third-party or customized applications is straightforward - all the data is sent out using a simple network protocol.
