MVN BIOMECH - Biomechanical Motion Sensor

MVN BIOMECH is an ambulant, full-body, 3D human kinematic, camera-less measurement system. It is based on state-of-the-art MEMS inertial sensors, biomechanical models and sensor fusion algorithms. MVN BIOMECH is ambulatory, can be used indoors and outdoors regardless of lighting conditions. The results of MVN BIOMECH trials require minimal post-processing as there is no occlusion or lost markers. Results can easily be exported to other software applications.
