One further point of note is the usage of photogrammetry within Ikinema. Motion Devotion has begun experimentation with using photogrammetry to 3D model for avatar creation. These avatars can then be placed into a virtual environment to replace the standard character, allowing the environment to feel even more personalized. With high resolution cameras and a photogrammetric stitching program, the user can follow themselves doing the exercise to break down an insecurity that may exist in the perception of physical therapy.
