Biomechanics play an important role in health, wellness, workplace health and safety, performance and research of the body. You might be asking, what are “biomechanics”? Well, biomechanics is the study of the mechanical laws relating to the movement or structure of living organisms.
As an active individual whether you’re an athlete, weekend warrior, fitness enthusiast, or your job is physically demanding; the study of your biomechanics can help solve issues that may or have already caused injury or pain.
What is DARI Motion
DARI Motion is a markerless motion capture system used to acquire the most precise, accurate and comprehensive biomechanics data in the industry.
Due to its industry leading precision and accuracy the DARI Motion is able to track changes over time with sub-millimeter accuracy. This provides us with accurate information needed to make immediate, informed decisions to adjust and guarantee each rehab, performance or recovery program is meeting your exact needs and our expectations.
The Dari Motion Tracks:
- 21 bone segments, nine joints, with six-degrees of freedom
- Kinematics and kinetics in all planes
- Range of motion
- Joint torques
- Internal/external rotation at the hip
- Shoulder ab-duction
- Anterior/posterior coronal deviation
- Neuromuscular engagement, center of mass sway in all planes
- All joints in space
DARI’s patented, 3rd-party validated kinetic capture collects kinetics without force plates. That means DARI can measure joint torques, ground reaction forces, and other force measurements without restricting the subject’s natural movement.
Why We Chose DARI Motion
Dari Motion is the Gold Standard and the most advanced, precise and accurate motion capture system. In order for us at Infinity Sports Institute to provide our athletes, patients, clients and members with the remarkable care, programs and outcomes we require industry leading technology and data.
The DARI Motion can be found at The Infinity Sports Institute Sports Science Lab, the only Sports Science Lab available to the public outside a University setting, in South Florida.
DARI Motion Accuracy
Most other markerless systems use a single consumer-grade depth camera originally developed for console gaming. These lack accuracy, capture a limited amount of the body, and can’t capture explosive, high-speed motions at their native 30 hz framerate.
Traditional motion labs require manual application of reflective markers on the body, causing up to 20% marker-placement error between sessions. Marker-based systems can not accurately track biomechanical data over time.
DARI uses eight high-speed cameras placed around the subject and a state-of-the-art computer-vision engine to collect whole-body data–including the fastest motions.
DARI Motion Speed
Marker-based motion analysis requires up to 45 minutes of marker placement for every session. Traditional marker-based analysis of a single human motion requires days of intensive data compiling and error-correction. By the time the data has been processed, the window of application will have passed. Therefor we will not have the chance to make accurate decisions on time.
The DARI Motion has zero markers and zero set up time. A complete body motion analysis takes under 5 minutes allowing us to scan 50 – 100 individuals per day! The DARI takes thousands of data points comprising each motion and processes them in under a second, that’s what we call FAST!
Knowledge is Potential Execution is Power
Quantification of data is useless if there is no action. The Dari Motion Provides easy-to-read reports, which our Performance and Sports Science Lab teams can explain to a 1stGrader! These reports allow us to take action steps to improving your health, performance and reducing your risk of injury. These reports include:
- Muscle-mapping and injury vulnerability
- Custom scoring and dynamic narratives
- Data integration with other devices
- Custom exercise suggestions
- Single and multiple motion reports
Who should take advantage of the DARI Motion System?
The Dari Motion is used for Wellness, Workplace health, Performance and Research.
Fitness Enthusiast, Average Person
If you are trying to improve or maintain health as well as mitigate any risks for potential injury.
The DARI Motion capture platform can perform a comprehensive biomechanical analysis in as little as five minutes allowing you to efficiently screen your entire employee population for Musculoskeletal Disorder Risk and Musculoskeletal Injury Risk
Athletes and Team Organizations
DARI can collect objective, actionable biomechanical data on entire teams in a matter of hours giving athletes and training staffs the tools to transform their motion.
Optimize Movement, Avoid Injury, Track Progress. As soon as an athlete steps out of the capture space, DARI delivers an easy-to-read report with actionable insights, allowing coaches and trainers to get to work immediately
DARI’s robust motion capture allows research to be conducted on populations that are difficult to assess with traditional systems. The capture space can support implements, such as treadmills, stairs, cycles, and chairs, items that can be critical to research-specific assessments.
At Infinity Sports Institute we are dedicated in Optimizing the Human Experience by using the best of sports science, sports medicine and technology. Through the “Gold Standard” in training, recovery, physical therapy and testing we look forward to helping you reach all your goals.
