Motion Capture Uses
Motion Capture for Ergonomics:
If you mention the phrase 'sprains and strains' to a manager or executive at a company that manufactures products you will probably get rapid acknowledgment of what you are talking about along with a bit of the grimace.
Work related injuries and repetitive stress injuries really wreak havoc with workers lives, families, morale, happiness and the bottom line of an organization. Decreasing or eliminating work related injuries is of great benefit to everyone: workers, managers, executives and pretty much anyone at a manufacturing company.
Motion capture is a tremendous tool for developing and testing ergonomic theories as well as finding ways to make the quality of life for workers and the profitability of the company increase.
This is one of those cases where the return on investment (on workers safety) represents a winning situation for everyone involved.
