The Company

Pioneering markerless motion capture technology.

KinaTrax, Inc. brings 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 to foster this incredible mission. We now have systems operating in several Major League Baseball ballparks.

We’ve also partnered with C-Motion, Inc. Together, we will deliver complex and comprehensive biomechanics analyses of data through its Visual3D software platform. As technologies evolve, we will push the boundaries of motion capture capabilities.
