Biofeedback & RealTime Motion Capture

Biofeedback – What are the possibilities?
With the release of The MotionMonitor xGen, our inaugural blog shared some of the things you have been telling us regarding the state of motion capture software.Biofeedback and its use to understand human movement was one topic with lots of interest.In this blog we will explore the topic and user applications in more detail.
What is biofeedback? A typical definition of Biofeedback is “a treatment in which patients learn to control bodily processes that are normally involuntary such as muscle tension, blood pressure, or heart rate.”In today’s world of research this definition is way too narrow.The common view probably, flows from early use of surface electromyography (sEMG) to treat disorders ranging from tension headache to joint dysfunction. A more appropriate and generalized definition might be: “Biofeedback is a process in which any raw or processed data derived from human movement, or initiation of movement, is provided to the subject in a co…
