Special developed elasticated straps allow easy placement of trackers on the subject by clicking them into place.
Awinda receiving dongle
Small Awinda receiving dongle is included with every system. The form factor gives the user more freedom while moving along with the subject.
BNC sync ports
The Awinda receiving station features 4 synchronization ports, 2 for sync out and 2 for sync in. Ideal for synchronizing with other data acquisition systems.

3D Kinematics of 23 segments
The Awinda Station is able to send or accept synchronization signals to sync with other data acquisition systems. The synchronization signals are fully configurable within MVN Studio Pro.
MVN Studio PRO software is part of the MVN BIOMECH (Awinda) system. The software incorporates the sophisticated Xsens MVN Fusion Engine which ensures reliable data output. A license on a dongle is included with every system.
A successfully tested software application for reading C3D exported data using MVN BIOMECH is Visual3D software from C-Motion. A free CMO/C3D reader can be downloaded from C-Motion.
Visual3D is hardware and marker set independent. Marker sets can be easily imported for users to create purpose-built models. Using the 63 marker set from MVN BIOMECH (Awinda), full body 3D kinematic analysis is possible.
Xsens has partnered with Siemens PLM Software to enable fast and easy integration of MVN BIOMECH’s highly accurate 3D data with the world-class software packages of the Tecnomatix-suite, Jack (>7.1) and Process Simulate Human (PSH >10.1). A special plug-in is available for MVN Studio Pro
Improve time to market using Xsens 3D motion capture data in Jack and Process Simulate Human (PSH). Real-time motion capture data streamed real-time into Siemens PLM software packages enables realistic task analysis of real humans carrying out real movements.
MVN BIOMECH is a mobile solution and can be used anywhere: indoors on an assembly line, on a factory floor, in tight spaces like a car or an airplane, as well as outdoors, without the need for simulated environments or additional equipment.
MVN data can be streamed in real-time, via middleware from Haption to Dassault ergonomics software packages as follows:
Using MVN BIOMECH with Haption’s IPSI, it is possible to analyse real data in a car, aeroplane, as well as immerge the human character directly into the digital mockup from Dassault software packages to validate future development, including assembly line, product, tooling, with realtime collision detection.
