The team at Vicon is excited to share all that has happened in the first half of 2018 and all that is coming up next; from new product releases and updates to our summer conference schedule and more.

Vicon Staff Update

We are excited to welcome Dr. Kim Duffy to her new role as Life Science Product Manager. A word from Kim:

I joined the Vicon family in April 2017 as a Support Engineer. During this time, I completed my PhD from the University of Essex which explored the effects of age on gait and functional movement in an older adult population; using three-dimensional motion analysis (Vicon System). I have a MSc in Biomechanics of Gait and Posture and BSc (First Class Hons) in Sports Science (Biomechanics). I am extremely passionate about Human Movement Research and I am looking forward to being at the forefront of this market to push Vicon to further innovate in motion capture.
