Agreement between a markerless and a marker-based motion capture systems for balance related quantities

Abstract

Balance studies usually focus on quantities describing the global body motion. Assessing such quantities using classical marker-based approach can be tedious and modify the participant’s behaviour. The recent development of markerless motion capture methods could bypass the issues related to the use of markers. This work compared dynamic balance related quantities obtained with markers and videos. Sixteen young healthy participants performed four different motor tasks: walking at self-selected speed, balance loss, walking on a narrow beam and countermovement jumps. Their movements were recorded simultaneously by marker-based and markerless motion capture systems. Videos were processed using a commercial markerless pose estimation software, Theia3D. The centre of mass position (CoM) was computed, and the associated extrapolated centre of mass position (XCoM) and whole-body angular momentum (WBAM) were derived. Bland-Altman analysis was performed and root mean square difference (RMSD) and coefficient of correlation were computed to compare the results obtained with marker-based and markerless methods. Bias remained of the magnitude of a few mm for CoM and XCoM positions, and RMSD of CoM and XCoM was around 1 cm. RMSD of the WBAM was less than 10 % of the total amplitude in any direction, and bias was less than 1 %. Results suggest that outcomes of balance studies will be similar whether marker-based or markerless motion capture system are used. Nevertheless, one should be careful when assessing dynamic movements such as jumping, as they displayed the biggest differences (both bias and RMSD), although it is unclear whether these differences are due to errors in markerless or marker-based motion capture system.
