Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) has launched the high-speed 4D body scanner, MOVE 4D, the new generation of automatic and markerless 3D human body motion scanner. IBV involves in 3D body scanning and human modelling. The leading technology centre studies the behaviour of people in their relation to the products, environments, and services they use to.

Measurements or 3D surfaces of the body captured, typically in a single static posture, are used to develop different types of wearable products, such as garments, helmets, orthotic devices, so on. However, the use of most of these products also involves human motion producing a change in posture, measurements, and shape of the body.

On the other hand, current gold standards in human movement analysis are based on marker photogrammetric systems, which offer an affordable simplification of body segments. Doubtlessly, these approaches have been an excellent method for assessing joints biomechanics, calculating limbs movements, or quantifying musculoskeletal performance.

MOVE 4D is a revolutionary concept of scanner for human digitalisation. It is a modular photogrammetry-based 4D capture and analysis system, which consists of a set of synchronised scanning modules and a processing software, according to a press release by IBV.

MOVE 4D allows the automatic markerless 3D acquisition of body shapes in movement and artefact-free watertight mesh reconstruction with anatomical point-to-point correspondence interframe. With an ultra-high spatial and temporal resolution up to 180 fps, the scanner provides a 3D texturised reconstruction with excellent reality results. Besides this, MOVE 4D’s automatic processing software is relied on data-driven body shape and posture models, enabling the expansion of the state-of-the-art in human assessment research by means of the combination of digital anthropometric reconstructions with the highest standards of human movement analysis.

Finally, the technology is ready to be easily synchronised with other biomechanical equipment. Its configuration can be customised depending on applications and it uses technology in continuous evolution as a result of an intense technological and scientific activity.

The revolutionary concept of scanner allows multiple applications, such as research in sports performance sciences, biomechanics, ergonomics, and medical sciences, or industry applications in the field of products and services design, data economy, digital production and entertainment, among others.

“As a result of the huge experience of IBV in anthropometry and human movement analysis, MOVE 4D represents a step forward in the field of body shape digitalisation, ergonomics, and biomechanics,” David Garrido, head of innovation in biomechanical assessment at IBV said.
