The Company

Pioneering markerless motion capture technology.

Kinatrax, Inc. was created to bring the beneficial and productive capabilities of next generation markerless motion capture technology out of the academic arena and into the real world. Professional baseball offers the right mix of environment and opportunity in which to begin this incredible mission, and we now have systems operating in several Major League Baseball ballparks.

We’ve also partnered with C-Motion Inc. to deliver complex and comprehensive biomechanics analyses of data through its Visual3D software platform. As technologies evolve, it is our goal to continue pushing the boundaries of motion capture capabilities.

Our Team

Steven Cadavid, Ph.D., President and Founder.

Steven is the principal developer of Kinatrax’s markerless motion capture system. He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a specialization in computer vision and machine learning from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL. Steven has been involved in the development of biometric recognition and markerless motion capture systems for most of his career and has authored more than 20 peer-reviewed articles in these fields. Steven was previously CTO and Co-Founder of Eyeris Technologies, an industry leader in facial analysis for in-vehicle driver monitoring.

Michelle Cisney, Data Processing Manager.

Michelle holds a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Catholic University of America. Her experience includes working as a research assistant in the Biomechanics Lab at the National Institutes of Health and at the US Olympic Training Center. In addition, she spent over 15 years as an IT Network Administrator. Michelle currently oversees all data processing for KinaTrax.

Allison Kepple, Data Processing Engineer.

Allison graduated from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts with a degree in Biology. After working as a lab assistant at UC Berkeley, she worked for C-Motion, processing 3D dynamic stereo X-Ray data to study human motion. Allison is currently the Data Processing Engineer, assisting with data collection, processing and site installations.

Ethan Venosa, Project Coordinator and Biomechanist.

Ethan coordinates system installations as well as analyzing player biomechanics. He has a Bachelor’s of Science in Biological/Biomedical Engineering from Cornell University and a Master’s of Science specialized in Biomechanics from the University of Central Florida. While at the University of Central Florida, Ethan was a member of UCF’s BRaIN Lab (Biomechanics, Rehabilitation, and Interdisciplinary Neuroscience) where he assisted in research involving biomechanics and the human gait cycle.
