Movie sets are normally the home of three-dimensional motion caption systems, but researchers used the same video recording system in a lab to measure the way pregnant women walk.

The results verify the existence of the ‘pregnancy waddle’ and should enable future studies on how to make everyday tasks safer and more comfortable for pregnant women.
