About Us

C-Motion, Inc. is the global leader in software tools for research biomechanics. Our goal is to enhance the value of 3D motion capture systems to improve patient outcomes, improve sports performance, reduce injuries, and generally improve lives. We do this by providing the mathematical tools that researchers and other professionals need to improve their decision making.

C-Motion was created in 1997 to transfer the Move3D physical rehabilitation technology from the National Institutes of Health into the commercial market. Visual3D™ is the product that resulted from this effort, and it was released commercially in 2001. C-Motion has since focused on the needs of the medical research, sports research, and rehabilitation communities with leading-edge 3D motion analysis capabilities. Today, Visual3D has thousands of users in over 50 counties.

C-Motion's focus is on software, and we add value to all hardware solutions capable of collecting movement data and associated measurements. For example, Visual3D is hardware independent, marker set independent, analytically extensible, and has the most capable biomechanical modeling functionality available. Visual3D provides research validated, consistent results from 3D motion capture data. Its analytical power makes it a compelling product for movement assessments and visualizing 3D data. It is used for measuring movement and performance for physical therapies, animal research, sports performance and injury prevention, virtual reality activities, pre and post surgical assessments, and many other applications.

C-Motion continues to commit its resources to being on the forefront of 3D motion analysis technology. Our vision is to make 3D movement assessments a normal and ubiquitous part of health care, sports, and research activities.

Our main office is less than a one hour drive from Dulles (IAD) airport or Baltimore (BWI) - except during rush hours.

It is also possible to take the Metro from Reagan National Airport (DCA) to the Shady Grove station, and then take either a bus or a taxi to Germantown. This also takes an hour or more.

There is a Fairfield Inn Hotel in Germantown across the street from our office, and lots of restaurants nearby.

From Dulles:
  • Take Rt 267, the Dulles Access Toll Rd (Stay in the center to avoid the tolls) for 7 miles.
  • Exit to 495 North (exit 18). Stay on 495 for 14 miles into Maryland.
  • Left exit onto 270 North. Stay on 270 for 15 miles.
  • From Rt 270 heading north, exit onto Rt 118 South (exit 15B).
  • Turn right at the first traffic light onto Aircraft Drive.
  • Turn right at the light (in front of the movie theater) onto Century Blvd.
  • The office is around the bend (past the parking garage) on the left – the Century 21 buildings (#20030).
