The purpose of this study was to compare gait kinematics measured with a markerless motion capture system against data measured with a marker-based motion capture system. A sample of 14 over-ground walking trials were captured simultaneously with two camcorders (60Hz) and an 8-camera marker system. The markerless data was further processed to landmarks using markerless human movement automatic capture system (FastMove). Body landmarks data of X and Z coordinates were highly consistent between the two systems, while data of Y coordinate showed low consistency. The Bland-Altman plots’ results showed low agreement between individual measurements of the maximum and minimum of knee and ankle flexion angles from both systems against the average of the measurements
