XSENS Innovation from the Netherlands
XSENS, based in The Netherlands, is a leading innovator in 3D motion tracking technologies. Their latest technology offers full body, 3D movement analysis by wireless data capture. They've introduced two new systems.
Their new MVN Awinda offers a full-body motion analysis that's optimized for sports and ergonomic uses. It deploys 17 wireless trackers wrapped around the performer such as in a headband, wrist, arm and leg bands. Movement data from them is transmitted up to 60 feet indoors and 150 feet outdoors to a backpack called an Awinda station where the data is streamed live or recorded.
Another new product is the MVN Link bodysuit. It is a lycra bodysuit with wireless trackers built-in. It comes in 5 sizes and has a wireless range for data transmission of 150 feet indoors and 450 feet outdoors. The bodysuit transmits the data to a central data link that resends or streams the data. This is new technology to help athletes, assembly line workers and perhaps those undergoing physical rehabilitation to rebuild their limbs.
