Mocap Suit Velcro

When using the Bodypack Belt on top of a velcro (loop) motion capture suit, the velcro (hook) strips on the inside of the Bodypack Belt can be connected to the suit for optimal wearing comfort.

We recommend routing the USB cables for the gloves through the mocap suit or by using velcro on the outside of the suit to secure the cables.


The Bodypack Belt is user adjustable between 86 - 126cm (34 - 50 inches).

Using Bodypack without Bodypack Belt

When using the Bodypack without the Bodypack Belt, make sure the Bodypack can ventilate itself properly and the antennas are not obscured.
