HFES 2017

Xsens will be exhibiting at the annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) 2017. We will demonstrate the MVN BIOMECH and MTw Awinda. And we will have live demonstrations of the just released Beta software.

Guest speaker
We are proud to annouce our guest speaker at the Xsens booth (#9) at HFES:

When:Wednesday 11 Oct. at 10.45am
Where:Xsens booth (#9)
Title:The ease of motion capture in the field using Xsens
Presenter: Carisa Harris Adamson, PhD, CPE, PT
Assistant Professor, University of California Director, UCSF/UCB Ergonomics
Graduate Training Program


Xsens Beta Program
Xsens is preparing a groundbreaking software release: a new, revolutionary software motion capture engine that will make Xsens’ mocap solutions immune to magnetic distortion and prevent body segment drift. Thanks to the great feedback of our closed Beta users we are confident to open up our Beta Program and give everyone the possibility to enjoy the new level of quality. You can already download the Beta here.

HFES will take place October 9–13 at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas. You will find us at booth #9. If you would like to make an appointment at HFES, feel free to contact us at [email protected].


NextGen Ergonomics
At HFES NexGen Ergonomics will launch the new HM-Analyzer for Xsens MTw Awinda. HM-Analyzer maps from one to 15 inertial sensors to various segments of the body (such as trunk, pelvis, arms, etc.) in order to obtain joint angles according to ISB (ISB angles are also anatomical angles) or according to AAOS. The software and system are totally scalable allowing you to use any number of Xsens MTw Awinda sensors as required. The skeleton which is used for visualization can be adjusted according to the subject’s anthropometry.

About HFES

The Society’s mission is to promote the discovery and exchange of knowledge concerning the characteristics of human beings that are applicable to the design of systems and devices of all kinds.
