How Qualisys works?
Reflective markers are placed on both the cyclist and the bike. These reflective markers are used to generate a 3D model of the cyclist with graphical representations of the cyclist’s pelvis, hip, knee and upper body rotation, as well as the movement patterns of the knee, ankle, toe and heel. These measurements can be compared over multiple trials which allows us to actually quantify how effective the changes (e.g., saddle height, reach to the handlebars) we are making really are. The software also allows us to compare the data to normative values so we can see which areas the cyclist needs to put in further work.
