2D Analysis of Human Movement

Two dimensional (2D) analysis is easier, faster, and sometimes more accurate than 3D analysis in some circmumstances. However, one must be aware of errors when applying 2D analysis to motion with significant out-of-plane components. Here are some software tools for 2D motion analysis.

Motion Analysis Tools is a Windows 95/NT/2000/XP/Vista program for taking measurements from digital video and bitmap images. This software is intended for clinical use; however, it may be useful for anyone in the fields of biomechanics or ergonomics. Contributed by Ed Lemaire, Ottawa, Canada.
