Human motion capture has been used to study skeletal biomechanics by analyzing bodily movements. The most common way to analyze body movements is to place reflective markers on the joints and record the movements to then move frame by frame to capture the desired joint angles. However new software has been developed called FreeMoCap in which this research examined. FreeMoCap easily quantified bodily movements and is easy to use by the common person. This software is easily downloaded onto a computer at home and only requires two cameras to use and does all analyzing of the movements automatically. Having a free movement software easy enough to download and use can be the future of scientific advancements and allow access to communities where expensive software is not readily available.
