3D Motion Capture System
The Ultium Motion System uses an array of inertial measurement units (IMUs) to measure anatomical joint angles, orientation angles, and linear acceleration in natural and lab-based environments. Data and subject motion are displayed in real-time with graphs and a skeletal avatar. Generate customized reports or access quaternions and raw sensor data (accelerometer, gyroscopes, & magnetometers). Synchronize with EMG, pressure, force, video and third party devices within the myoRESEARCH software platform.
The Calibration Adjustment Tool can be used to adjust or correct the static calibration performed with the myoMOTION sensors by allowing the user to directly measure the subject’s posture and apply that posture to the myoMOTION skeleton. The system also automatically measures and adjusts the subject’s bone lengths. This tool offers the ability to achieve ISB-compliant modeling with an inertial motion capture system and is exclusive to Noraxon.
Using accelerometer-based techniques to correct course misalignments, functional calibration routines are driven by an integrated software wizard to help mitigate magnetic distortion. There are three calibration routines built into the software to provide suitable methods for any given environment.
Flash memory chips built in to each sensor store any data packets that cannot be sent to the receiver due to transmission interference or being out of range. Quickly recover stored data and fill in the gaps for multiple recordings at a time using the offline data recovery tool.
Mix and match up to 16 channels of EMG & Motion with one receiver. The new Ultium Motion system utilizes the same receiver & charging station as Ultium EMG to reduce the cost of using two systems, save space, and simplify the collection of EMG & Motion data. If you already have an Ultium EMG system, your current receiver is compatible with Ultium Motion.

“My good friends over at #JohnsHopkins Physical Therapy thought it be a good idea to test some of their new equipment by #Noraxon. I had 13 sensors attached to me measuring all things Kinematics. Thanks @kenjohnsn for this amazing opportunity to better understand what I love to do!”
Noraxon provides users with customizable reports to highlight the key results of data collection in a quick and efficient way.
Plot any two angle signals against each other in one angle-angle diagram in order to characterize the geometric pattern of locomotion or other cyclical activities like rowing or cycling.
Point of Interest
Automatically create a video snapshot at key events to provide visualization and help create a learning environment. Angular Data and optional EMG or force data are automatically added to the report at the specific points in time.
Noraxon technology is cited in over 10,000 published articles.
