Frequently asked questions
What is EuMotus BodyWatch, and what does it do?
EuMotus BodyWatch is a makerless motion capture and analysis tool designed for the physical therapy clinic.
The clinician gets their patients to stand in front of the camera, and perform a few exercises. The clinician then uses objective movement data in AROM, (a)symmetry, and problematic movement patterns combined with video to double check their intuition with quantified evidence, and better engage their patient.

What is the difference between motion capture and motion analysis?
Motion capture refers to the quantification of movement - knee flexion, shoulder ROM etc. Motion analysis immediately follows motion capture, and involves reviewing movement data, and extracting insights from a patient's movements. Tradtionally, a motion capture system requires a PhD in biomechanics, and multiple hours to process movement information.
Why markerless motion capture?
Markerless motion capture strikes a balance between speed and accuracy. It is more accurate and reliable compared to unaided visual observation, and goniometry. Markerless motion capture scores well in accuracy compared to traditional motion capture systems, and takes less than half the time to operate. Markerless motion capture makes motion analysis finally accessible for the clinical setting.
Where is the evidence on accuracy, reliability, and validity?
You can read up on the evidence performed by third parties in peer-reviewed journals and white papers on the evidence page.
How many body joints do you track?
Up to 26 joints in real-time.
How many exercises do you support?
Currently 25 exercises. Here is a sampling of exercises.
What if the exercise I'd like to measure is not included in BodyWatch?
We have a free-run mode, where we record raw data, but do not perform any analysis.
What camera does EuMotus BodyWatch use?
What does the software help analyze?
Using specialized algorithms driven by expert knowledge, BodyWatch automatically creates a concise movement analysis report, which includes measures of range of motion, stability, symmetry, and likely muscle imbalances. This report can be used to not only improve the assessment procedure but also track progress of recovery and performance over time.
Who is EuMotus BodyWatch for?
EuMotus BodyWatch is markerless motion analysis software designed to be used by physical therapists.
Is EuMotus BodyWatch portable?
Yes. You can take down and set up the system in a few minutes.
How can I learn more before requesting a demo?
How can I request a demo?
We provide all required hardware, software, training and ongoing customer support.
Why do you have a subscription model?
Can I buy the product outright?
We provide our product through a subscription. We don't want this piece of equipment to gather dust after a one-time sale. The subscription aligns incentives by ensuring that the clinic, and clinicians receive value. If you find that it's not the right fit for your clinic, you can end your subscription at the end of your contract.
Do you offer a trial period?
What are the health benefits of motion analysis?
Improved health outcomes, longitudinal progress tracking, and demonstration of evidence-based practice.
What are the business benefits of motion analysis?
Our clients use our motion analysis tool for improved patient engagement and education. This leads to improved patient retention. Check out physical therapy patient retention calculator to dig into the return on investment numbers.
Does motion analysis matter to referring physicians?
The incorporation of motion analysis to your clinic's operations allows you to differentiate your clinic from competitors in the area.
How do patients react to motion analysis?
Our clients have found that patients of all ages from pediatrics, through weekend warriors, and geriatric patients react positively, and become more engaged in their treatment process.
