Scientific statement

We are scientists, clinicians and computer engineers building and maintaining the Qinematic services.

Using an off-the-shelf 3D video camera that records at 30 frames per second, Qinematic’s markerless scanning is affordable and accessible for everyone. The Microsoft Kinect sensor, with software development kit (SDK) and native skeletal tracking, has been validated as a tool for postural assessment and balance assessment in the peer-reviewed scientific literature (1, 2, 3). It has demonstrated reliability in measurement, and inter-reliability in assessment and re-assessment. Qinematic's scientists have identified the strengths and weaknesses of the Kinect sensor, improved on the native tracking algorithms (4), and packaged a service with a convenient user interface that feels more like a game than a human movement laboratory.

Xbox Kinect Validation 

Xbox Kinect is the sensor used by Qinematic to detect the signals of the surface area of the human body and determine the various body parts. It is a reliable device and has the approval of many research studies as a recording device and for clinical use. Qinematic software was tested for accuracy in 2017, and passe with flying colours form a reputable health research institute in Sweden.


Clinical Validation

Qinematic places great importance on delivering accurate, precise results, so that you can get the best results for each scan you do. We collaborate with universities, some of which have used our software for research purposes. There are many studies that show the Kinect to be a valid and reliable device for use in clinics.
