IPi Biomech extends the functionality of IPi Motion Capture for markerless tracking and visualization of Mocap data for medical, sports analysis and movement science applications. The add-on tool provides bio-mechanical analysis of human motion by extracting data from selected bones using convenient coordinate systems (so users can select how coordinates are measured).
