KineView 3.2 is a 2D Windows based motion analysis software. Emphasis is placed on simplicity and efficiency. The system, one of the quickest to learn, allows swift and easy evaluation of data.

Its high level of versality makes KineView an excellent tool and resource for movement analysis studies, whether in the field of research or in the clinical environment.

KineView brings objectivity in movement analysis for Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, joint replacement, orthopaedics and other clinical and non-clinical applications.
The video signal is visible before the recording, which is beneficial when lining up the measurement. When ready to shoot, recording is done by a single click of a mouse button. After recording the video can be browsed easily and evaluated before saving. This function makes the clinical work more efficient, as there might be several recordings before acceptable data has been recorded. All data are saved in AVI file and can easily be distributed e.g. to the patients. When ready to save, the data is filed in a hierarchical database, where each group can have several patients, in addition each patient can have several research files and each particular research can have several measurements. The video can be browsed in several ways. By using the mouse button or keyboard it can be single stepped, multistepped or played.

Four intuitive and interactive tools imitate tools familiar to the clinician:
1. Marker
2. Ruler
3. Goniometer
4. Timer


The tools "float" above the frame of interest and can be adjusted by pulling handles. The user can measure incidents in a single frame or between frames. Movement that rolls by, like joint angle, can be tracked with the tools.
Manual tracking is aided by some keyboard shortcuts. If marker indicators are present during recording, KineView can track them automatically. This way spots and angles can be digitised. KineView enables its users to measure all kinds of planar movement and on top of all provides automated reports for the user when analysing gait.
Two types of gait analysis are supported. The basic gait report can be produced within five minutes. It contains basic temporal-spatial parameters such as cadence, walk speed, stride/step length, swing and stance phase times and symmetry of left and right side. Reference values for the relevant patient group can be entered for comparison.

The advanced report, in addition to the basic report, contains, ankle, knee, hip, shoulder and elbow joint angle plots for left and right side. By following the protocol a trained user can generate a basic report in 5 minutes and the advanced in about 20 minutes.
As a portable system for movement analysis, KineView allows for high flexibility indoor and outdoor. All you need is your video camera!

The camcorder does not have to be plugged into the computer during data acquisition. Just record movements of subjects to the tape and analyse them later in the laboratory. As KineView also runs on laptops, you can analyse data even in the field, straight away!

KineView can be upgraded to KinePro enabling the user to record synchronized video and EMG.
