Hello Researchers

Has anybody used the Optitrack motion capture and tracking system (http://www.natural-point.com/optitrack/) for biomechanics research (especially gait analysis and sports biomechanics)? It looks like it is primarily made for virtual reality simulations and gaming purposes but they claim that it can be used for research as a basic motion analysis system. Any information is appreciated.

Thanks in advance
