Project Description

Reach&Grasp

Reach&Grasp

Reach&Grasp is a software package for the investigation of reaching and grasping tasks. It allows to analyse kinematic data acquired with several commercial motion analysis systems (Qualysis, Vicon, BTS). Main computed parameters are wrist velocity, wrist acceleration and deceleration time, fingers maximum opening.

A wide set of processing functions allows the overlapped view of several tracks from the same or different subjects and the computation of main statistical parameters useful to depict the behaviour of the single subject and compare it to reference normative values.
