Congratulations on your Graduation

As the world’s first patented markerless motion capture analysis system, Kinetisense allows you to engage with your patients and provide them real-time biofeedback for how they truly move.


Kinetisense assessments have never been easier to complete. The streamlined design of the iPad allows for it to be moved and set up in any treatment room.

With the new leveling kit included in the Kinetisense iPad edition, setting up the iPad is simple. Lateral and anterior/posterior tilts are automatically detected, and a small “x” will appear on the screen if the camera is not level. Once the camera is in the correct position, the “x” will disappear. The guidelines for camera height are the same as for the desktop version of Kinetisense. The iPad camera should be set at about hip level (3-4 feet up from the ground).

For ease of use and increased accuracy, Kinetisense provides a list of suggested tripods/stands that work well with iPad. Please contact us if you would like more information.
Portrait and Horizontal view can be adjusted by holding the iPad vertically or horizontally. The portrait view can be used to a practitioner’s advantage when in smaller spaces. The camera on the iPad can capture more of the person with less required space.

For ease of use and increased accuracy, a tripod or stand is recommended


Understanding the basic principles of LIDAR technology will assist you when setting up the system. To ensure accurate three-dimensional scanning, the reflection of the pulsing laser light must not be obstructed. Direct sunlight, bright windows, and reflective surfaces such as mirrors should be avoided. A bare wall provides an ideal background for conducting assessments.

Given that the floor can also act as a reflective surface, it is recommended that users place a yoga mat on the ground. Additionally, any large pieces of equipment or furniture that could obstruct certain landmarks on the body should be moved away. For optimal performance, it is recommended that the sensor is placed in an open room with minimal background traffic. 


Kinetisense clothing requirements are relatively straightforward and apply to everyone who may use the system. Tight, contrasting clothing with respect to the walls and floor is recommended, as is the removal of hats, glasses, and hair ties. This allows for the appropriate exposure of landmarks such as the eyes and ears. For the posture module, it is advised that shoes and socks be removed.

Sensor Placement

For both the iPad and desktop versions of Kinetisense, the sensor height does not change. It is recommended that the sensor be placed 3-4 feet off the ground. In order to use the Kinetisense 360 desktop version effectively, at least 10 feet of distance between the sensor and the participant being assessed is required. For the Kinetisense 360 iPad version, at least 6 feet is required. For the Kinetisense diamond package on both the desktop and iPad, at least 17 feet is required.

Background Traffic

The system is designed to lock on to the person closest to the sensor. This allows for passive range of motion assessments to be performed. It also allows practitioners to assist patients during balance assessments.

To ensure optimal performance, a clean background is recommended. High amounts of background traffic can cause the sensor to jump. This can affect assessment accuracy.

Further information regarding the Kinetisense system is available in the user manual and iPad starter kit. These documents can be found on the Vault. Kinetisense users can access the Vault by entering the username and password they have been provided.

 Open the Kinetisense application through the app store.

 A username,  password and Kinetisense Cloud will be provided by the Kinetisense team member once a license has been purchased. The password can be reset after the initial login but username and Kinetisense Cloud will remain the same.

Enter the provided username and password. The “Use Kinetisense Cloud” must be selected as well as the correct cloud information provided. Please note that there are multiple United States clouds, please select the cloud provided by a Kinetisense team member.

Please note that anyone can create a new Kinetisense account to explore the app, but will be unable to use any of the modules without a license key provided by a member of the Kinetisense Team.
