Recording and analyzing human motion is transforming fields as disparate as sports science, computer animation and medical rehabilitation. The Moven motion capture suit from Xsens Motion Technologies records full-body human motion in a broad range of environments, not just labs. Its 16 sensors, which include two accelerometers and three gyroscopes from Analog Devices’ iMEMS line, can be located anywhere on the body, simplifying setup. The suit measures 6 degrees of freedom gathered 100 times per sec, then sent via a wireless link. Direct measurement of acceleration and angular velocity simplifies internal force and momentum calculations so more data can be captured and analyzed.
