ASB 2018

Xsens will be exhibiting at the annual The American Society of Biomechanics meeting 2018. Where we will show our Xsens MVN Analyze products.

The 42nd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics will be held August 8-11, 2018 in Rochester, Minnesota at the Mayo Civic Center. You can find us at booth 26.

At ASB we will have demonstrations and session including:

Using Xsens to Assess Risk of Injury: A Demonstration by Valparaiso University
The Valparaiso University Human Movement Research Laboratory is excited to share how they are taking the “lab” out onto the field with the wireless MVN Awinda motion capture system. The flexibility of the data acquisition system and the simple set-up has helped undergraduate research students start up new research projects based on their areas of interest.
They will also show off a little of our newest study which analyzes collegiate soccer players in order to identify when and if the athlete is at risk for injury. The full assessment includes exercises both with and without the soccer ball. However, for this demonstration they will be showcasing exercises with the ball and how Xsens Awinda can be used to explore the athlete’s balance and coordination by tracking the center of mass and examining how plots of the joint angles can be used to visualize limb symmetry.
This presentation is sponsored by Bend-It Soccer Balls.
When: Thursday, August 9 at 2 PM
Where: Xsens booth 26

Xsens and C-Motion Simplify Human Motion Measurement
The demo will involve Visual3D (latest version v6) and MVN Analyze and we will show the integration of our MVNX file into Visual3D and the processing for gait analysis applications. At ASB they will show how researchers have the ability to record human movement anywhere using MVN Analyze. They will also show how you can track the position and orientation of their subjects, and also velocity and acceleration, with the highest levels of accuracy and reporting.
When: Thursday, August 9 at 3.30 PM
Where: Xsens booth 26

Does a rotating bar affect the body kinematics during a penny drop maneuver?
Guidance Engineering will present their study about the more advanced, but also dangerous, maneuvers on a turning bar, the so-called “penny drop”. The objective was to determine the influence of the chinning bar rotational state on body kinematics in a penny drop maneuver while sitting on the top of a chinning bar.
When: Friday, August 10 at 11 AM
Where: Xsens booth 26
