Cycling 3DMA is a tool for full-body, 3D, 100FPS cycling analysis. It uses at least 4 motion capture cameras and it also includes a bike measuring protocol.
From feet to shoulders. Left and right sides. Spine analysis with cervical and lumbar segments. Dynamic tracking of the bike plane. Cycling 3DMA monitors the entire cyclist’s body in a one-time recording.
Data is acquired, processed and displayed at a frame rate of 100 Hz/fps: high enough to ensure a smooth interpolation even on the fastest pedaling cadences. And faster than any bike-fitting tools in the market. Considering the vast set of parameters calculated on each sample, this results in a colosal amount of data at your disposal.
Measure the bike
The same motion capture technology can be used to accurately measure the bicycle after the fitting session. Specific reports can be generated with a single click for road, MTB, triathlon and time trial bikes.
The system installation is pretty simple and is usually done by the users on their own, with our remote supervision and following the instructions provided. The cameras need to be placed on the recommended positions, typically on the wall/ceiling. Just one cable from each camera to a sync hub, and then one cable from the sync hub to the computer. In the event that you decide to acquire a system, we would request some pictures and dimensional info on the room where the system would be set up — this is to help you optimize the motion capture volume.
Cycling 3DMA allows also connecting a webcam (ie: cheap Logitech 60FPS camera) or high-speed video camera working at the same speed as the 3d system (100FPS) to register a synchronized visual reference of the motion.
