Movement analysis

Movement AnalysisHuman movement analysis is the observation and definition of movements of humans. Movement analysis is often carried out in a laboratory. Simple analysis can involve simple observations. Advanced analysis often involves some form of technology, for example high speed, or optical / optoelectronic cameras to generate the kinematics needed for analysis. Often force plates and/ or electromyography can be combined to provide complete information.

Movement Analysis with inertial sensors

Xsens solutions are based on MEMS inertial sensors, facilitating accurate kinematic measurements in and outside the laboratory. The environment can be in the lab but also the subject’s home, the ski slope or even in the air. With no need for a lab, the data can be recorded in the natural environment.
