...biomechanics software that is more powerful, more flexible, more intuitive
- Supporting translational research
- Enabling hybrid motion capture
- Creating turn-key mobile solutions
- Take your research protocol into the classroom, clinic, factory or field.
- Create applications quickly & easily.
- Utilize an icon driven interface to ensure your protocol is implemented as intended.
Combine two kinematic tracking technologies to create powerful solutions that utilize the advantage of each.
Use optical systems to define more precise anatomically-based models and then track the subject with IMU sensors.
Use IMU sensors together with optical systems when line of sight can not be maintained.
Use mini electromagnetic sensors to track finger movement while using optical camera system to track full body motion.
The MotionMonitor is a turnkey 3D motion capture system with software for biomechanics research and rehabilitation. It is designed to synchronously collect data in realtime from hardware that includes optical trackers, inertial measurement units, EMG sensors, force plates, hand transducers, EEG systems, digital video, event markers, other analog devices, virtual reality displays and haptic devices. Data generated from a rich collection of analytical tools are immediately available for playback with graphical displays of all data outputs and stunning 3D computer graphics and subject animations. Real-time measurement of visual, auditory and haptic stimuli; monitoring of brain activity; measurement of eye movement, muscle recruitment and external forces acting on the body; and reporting of the subject's resultant kinematic movement and joint forces are achieved using the broadest range of hardware available in the market.
