3DM: Marker Placement

The VF-Tape markers are a highly reflective material printed on to Kinesiology tape. The system is optimised to identify these markers, while you may be able to use other reflective markers it is likely that you will have detection issues and a worse experience.

The markers are placed at the centre of each joint:

  • Foot: 5th Metatarsal
  • Ankle: Lateral Maleolus
  • Knee: Distal Femoral Lateral Epicondyle
  • Hip: Greater Trochanter
  • Shoulder: Greater Tuberosity of the Humeral head (not on the Acromion as in other systems)
  • Elbow: Lateral Epicondyle
  • Wrist: Centre of the Distal Radioulnar joint
