Abstract: Motion capture systems based on different physical principles and sensor elements become moderate in price and mobile in application. New application fields have been developed. Motion capture and analysis is used in physiotherapy, geriatrics or public sports. In this paper three different types of motion capture systems are investigated with respect to their adaptability to health applications: the OptiTrack-Motion Capture System, the Kinect of Microsoft and SHIMMER sensors. Human gait was measured using all three systems and the obtained data were compared. In further tests the gait of volunteers and patients were captured with Kinect and two scores evaluating their motion capability were calculated.
