MVN BIOMECH

Tags: 3D human kinematics | Movement Analysis | Gait Analysis

Full-body human measurement system based on inertial sensors, biomechanical models and sensor fusion algorithms. Easy to use, short setup time and instant data output. Can be used anywhere.

  • Real-Time Kinematics. Effortlessly.
  • Robust and reliable
  • Use anywhere

Overview

The MVN BIOMECH systems are the number one choice for measuring 3D kinematics everywhere, under any circumstance.

Xsens tailored both hardware and software of the MVN BIOMECH systems to ensure reliable and accurate human motion measurements. Special developed and tiny motion trackers are able to capture the smallest twitches to high dynamic movements on-body. Dedicated signal pipelines take care of real-time and robust data connections.

The proven MVN BIOMECH biomechanical model and sensor fusion algorithms ensure the highest quality motion analysis, even in challenging environments.
