A solution dubbed the 'world’s highest quality motion capture system' could help sports scientists, personal trainers and other professionals working across recovery and rehabilitation provide more accurate advice and exercise regimes.

Created by motion capture specialist Vicon, the new Valkyrie system could offer new insights into structures such as the shoulder, feet, and spine.

The new high-speed capture mode is able to record movement at up to 2,000 Frames Per Second (FPS).

When combined with a new powerful and bespoke varifocal lens, the system can deliver a greater fidelity in human motion capture and, according to Vicon, unlock a "previously unmatched picture quality".

Imogen Moorhouse, CEO of Vicon, said: “Whether it is sports scientists capturing the fastest moving athletes or sporting equipment, or researchers using our technology to analyse increasingly complex motion in spines or shoulder joints, our customers are at the cutting edge of the use of motion capture.

"With Valkyrie we will support their growing needs and demands with the most advanced motion capture systems ever seen.

“We have created a set of features providing high fidelity, intelligence, automation and technical robustness which combine to create a new degree of usability, speed and accuracy.

"With every design decision we’ve taken, we have focused on empowering the global community of motion capture users to take their work to the next level.

"With Valkyrie, our customers are going to play a massive role in driving forward a new era of motion capture innovation and exploration.”
