AnamoCGA™ - clinical gait analysis - 'use case trials' - a success
During January through April 2018, as part of our 'When DATA has Meaning' programme, we carried out a series of 'proof of concept trials' for AnamoCGA™ - our clinical gait analysis for children with Cerebral Palsy attending the Enable Ireland facility in Cork. This was a first for us as we introduced our markerless motion capture system and was deemed a success by Ms Gillian O'Dwyer (Head Physiotherapist) and her team at Enable Ireland, today.

AnamoMAL (motion analysis lab) Cork, Ireland.
Ian McCormack, Frontwire Studios, US, motion capture SME - subject matter expert, came to visit Anamo Prometrics lab at the Marina Business Park in Cork yesterday. Ian's skillset includes system calibration, data processing and motion editing and he has worked with many of the leading marker based motion capture systems including Vicon, XSens, Rokoko and Perception Neuron mocap systems.
We were particularly please to get Ian's reaction to our work with children who have cerebral palsy using AnamoCGA™ - our markerless motioin capture SaaS.
"I was really impressed with your system. It seemed like a system that is also ideal for younger children. I've tried doing motion capture with a traditional system on kids and setting it up and calibrating was impossible. They just don't have the attention span."
"Really good to meet with you Ian. I hope that you and your family have a good time during your visit to Ireland. Travel safely." John Fitzgerald, CEO Anamo Prometrics Ltd.
