The HumanTrak captures human movement through markerless motion tracking and can be a crucial tool in military physical screening. Reliability was examined in eighteen healthy participants who completed shoulder and hip ROM, and dynamic tasks in three body armour conditions. Generally, for all conditions, good to excellent reliability was observed in shoulder abduction and flexion, hip abduction and adduction, and dynamic squats knee and hip flexion (ICC ≥0.75 excluding outliers). Shoulder adduction and hip flexion demonstrated moderate to excellent reliability (ICC ≥0.50). Shoulder and hip extension and the drop jump were unreliable (ICC: 0.10-0.94, 0.15-0.89, and 0.30-0.82, respectively) due to the large distribution of ICC scores. Tasks with ROM values ≥100° involving movement towards or perpendicular to the HumanTrak camera tended to have greater reliability than movements moving away from the camera and out of the perpendicular plane regardless if body armour was worn.
