Health and Safety Information:

Motion capture places you in proximity to magnets or components that emit radio waves, which could affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers, hearing aids and defibrillators. If you have a pacemaker or other implanted medical device, do not use these devices without first consulting your doctor or the manufacturer of your medical device. We recommend seeing a doctor before engaging in motion capture if you believe you may be at increased risk from radiation, for example if you are pregnant, elderly, have pre-existing binocular vision abnormalities, or suffer from a heart condition or other serious medical condition.
