Hello fellow netters,

Some colleagues and I want to set up a *SIMPLE* one-camera video system
to track passive markers. We thought we'd use a single camera, reflective
tape as markers, a frame grabber, and do the digitizing by hand. Is there
software (commercial or otherwise) available to control the digitizing
process and display the resulting kinematic data?

Some time ago, I worked with such a system developed for a single lab at
Hunter College in New York City, but I assume there are other sources
available by now. It must be user-friendly as we want it for a hands-on
tool in an undergrad biomechanics course. We need to do basic things like
show trajectories, velocity and acceleration profiles, compute joint angles,
angular velocity, make angle/angle plots and stick figures. Additional
features are welcome as long as they don't overly complicate the user
interface.

Thanks in advance for your help. I'll post the responses when they come in.

Sincerely,

Becky States
