Vicon, the world leader in motion capture in the life sciences industry, today is the latest vision paper focusing on some of the key trends and developments that will determine the future of motion capture technology in the clinical setting within the next five years. Announced the announcement. This report highlights how the use of tracking techniques such as wearables will become commonplace in general practitioners and other clinical settings by 2025.
The report, which includes insights from both Vicon’s own and medical professionals, provides a variety of perspectives and projections on the future of motion capture in a clinical environment. It focuses on how this technology can be an important tool for clinicians and healthcare professionals to better understand human movements and thus have a positive impact on the lives of millions of people.
The main trends expected to be seen in the coming 2025 are:
Wearable as an educational “gateway” for clinicians
As seen in other markets such as sports science, wearable tracking solutions that utilize inertial tracking technology offer significant benefits in terms of ease of use and low cost.
As insurers become more involved in healthcare, we anticipate the first major rollout of wearable trackers to monitor rehabilitation compliance over the next year. Large-scale deployments will enable more clinicians to see the potential of motion tracking data and support a wider range of patient care.
Increased use and acceptance of non-optical tracking systems
We are still learning about the possibilities of more diverse tracking techniques to support clinical practice, but there is a clear view that by 2025, clinicians will have a much larger toolbox to choose from for motion analysis. There is.
Reliance on optical tracking systems is likely to be much lower, and we plan to define and standardize biomechanical models of inertial systems over the next five years. This greatly improves the accessibility of motion tracking technology. These inertial systems also open the door to integration with other technologies, such as Apple’s ARKit.
The new Vision Paper also looks at the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in motion tracking, and how these not only make the technology more accessible, but also play an important role. I will explain how it will be fulfilled. Basic science.
Extensive research using motion tracking technology and the adoption seen over the last 35 years means that there is great potential for the use of motion capture to accelerate in the clinical environment over the next few years. As a company at the forefront of technological innovation, we want to work closely with researchers and teams to push the boundaries of what motion capture can do and continue to lead the future of motion tracking technology in the clinic. thinking about. life science. With this in mind, we wanted to create a detailed vision paper that would look at some of the key trends we will see over the next five years and how to overcome them. Ultimately, you want motion capture to be as successful as possible. It benefits the patient. “
