ErgoImager provides unique 2D/3D translation functions that allow you to perform 3D biomechanical analysis using 2D digital images, videos or 3D information from Microsoft's Kinect.
ErgoImager performs 3D biomechanical analysis from various models. ErgoImager interfaces with NexGen Ergonomics' MQ biomechanical model. When using the Kinect®, the software animates a digital human model. Users can record human motion and apply it to a 3D mannequin using various features from our HumanCAD® technology. ErgoImager provides reports with the original images and selected results from our MQ biomechanical model.
ErgoImager provides results on the screen as well as reports with the original image, mannequin in the posture matching the image and selected results from our MQ model. These reports can be exported to Microsoft's Word software so that users can easily customize the reports to their needs.
The 3D mannequin is easily positioned over an image to reflect or match the position of the person performing the task in the digital image using the 3D manipulator to perform Inverse kinematics (IK) and forward kinematics (FK).
You can capture and measure anthropometry with the Kinect. Captured images can be included in a variety of reports.
You can also change the anthropometry of the mannequin (subject) using additional ErgoImager functions. The software also calculates the Center of Mass and Center of Gravity.
Captured video and movements using the Microsoft Kinect can be used to create animations which can be exported.
The following file formats are compatible with ErgoImager:
The following lists the system requirements to run ErgoImager without the Kinect (no motion capture).
The following lists the system requirements to run ErgoImager with the Kinect version 1 (ability to capture motion).
The following lists the system requirements to run ErgoImager with the Kinect version 2 (ability to capture motion).
Current Version: V 3
NOTE: Software trials are provided for evaluation only prior to possible purchase by those involved in the evaluation and decision process. We also provide them to students when the university has purchased the software and the trial is coordinated thru academic staff.
