At Codamotion, we believe that 3D movement analysis requires a complete and integrated measurement process - from controlling sensors that provide the data (including force plates EMG etc), modelling and analysis of the data, all the way to output reports and visual displays - and we aim to provide the very best tools for every step:
- The most accurate measurements from our own CODA units and easy integration of third party sensors such as force plates and EMG systems;
- Comprehensive and user-friendly modelling and analysis tools built as standard into our software, offering complete traceability that preserves the integrity of captured data
- Easy sharing of data and customised outputs in a variety of forms and formats to suit every user.
- Easily exchanges data with third-party analysis programmes such as Visual 3D and Matlab.
If you have any questions or problems, support is available throughout the world through our offices and business partners via direct email, video-conferencing, telephone, and fax. Online live support is available through ISL online.

What it Does That's New
The combination of our software with CodaHub options allows real-time synchronization. Users can synchronize their movement analysis data with data from force plates, EMG systems and other third-party hardware. Connections and interfaces for a wide variety of equipment from all popular manufacturers are available. Connected devices can be triggered simultaneously using the Codamotion system as either master or slave. Once collected, the software allows the integrated data to be analysed and presented on a single screen or as part of a single report.
Under the hood', ODIN is a completely new software platform for measurement, analysis, reporting, sharing, and managing 3D movement analysis data, with a group of new concepts to help the user including Analysis Protocols, Data Stores and Motion Bundles.
The ODIN software suite uses a number of unique concepts to help the user. The first of these is the introduction of an entity called the ‘Analysis Protocol’. An ‘Analysis Protocol’ is a container that allows the user to group any or all of the following:
- Acquisition options (including marker names & pointer landmarks)
- List of things for user input (e.g. tags to be applied to trial data)
- List of automatic and/or user-defined calculations
- Definitions for data views
- Definitions of how to arrange data views on screen panels (layouts)
In effect, a user can set up the entire ‘work instruction’ for a measurement process/analysis, save it for future use, and even pass it to other users as a ‘tailored application’ that already encapsulates ‘expert knowledge' about the application (e.g. an end to end process for ‘Gait Analysis’.)
The Data Store is an installation of a MongoDB database.
A Data Store is:
- A collection of all the information needed to do movement analysis.
- A store of trial data and Analysis Protocols.
The main Data Store can be located on a network server, if required. Users may also have a ‘local Data Store’ on a laptop or home PC for remote working.
Apart from providing a central location for sharing data, a Data Store also provides:
- Easy ways to make trials searchable by the Codamotion software based on subject / date / trial stats
- A complete record of all revisions to calculated data.
ODIN also allows the user to create Motion Bundles that make it easy to transport and exchange data between ODIN Data Stores on different computers. A Motion Bundle includes:
- Data from one or more trials (including any revisions to calculations)
- One analysis protocol which applies to the data
- An outer wrapper called the Codamotion Motion Bundle file (.MOBL)
The principal advantages of this concept are:
- Useful for transporting data to remote laptop or home PC
- Useful for emailing analyses to colleagues
- Can merge revisions made on remote PC back into main network data store
