Research PRO IMU

Research-Grade Wearable Tech

Using traditional motion capture systems in nontraditional ways has always been a challenge. Getting precise movement data on a stairway, in the field, around a manufacturing plant or anywhere that isn’t a large, open space has been virtually impossible... until now.

Noraxon’s advanced Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) system is patented technology that comes with an accuracy level within 1 to 2 degrees of legacy camera-based systems, and allows for 3D kinematic measurement outside the lab.

Required Software Module



The myoMOTION™ software module features a medically accurate avatar paired with a robust toolset for analyzing pre-processed motion records. Real-time data is automatically synchronized in an all-in-one analysis, enabling detailed human movement insight for performance enhancement, injury recovery or research metrics. Data export formats and HTTP streaming also allow compatibility with third-party research and animation programs.
